I am researching my ancestor, William Murry, b. Buncombe Co. NC in 1769, m. Rachel Anderson, B. Buncombe Co. NC in 1769. One of his sons was Abel Vance Murry, b. 1793 in Buncombe Co., m. Salle McAlpin from Georgia. They moved to McNairy Co., TN. One of their sons was Dr. John Young Murry. I cannot go back further than William and would like any assistance that someone may be able to give. (He may have spelled his name "MURRAY" before moving to TN). One of my aunts told me that one of our ancestors taught George Washington Freshman Composition at William and Mary College. Any information will be appreciated.
