My goal at this point (after over 45 years of researching) is to find the parents of my Daniel Chester Murray and his siblings Hawley Murray, Abigail Hayford, John C. Murray, Hiram Murray, and other unknown. I find that his father is Iram (always spelled Iram) and his mother is Lydia (MNU). In 1790 they are in Argyle, Washington County, NY; in 1810 they are in Moreau, Saratoga County, NY. They may have lived on same land (Allotment 20, Lot 5 of Kaysaderros Patent) with the change of boundaries throwing them in different counties at different times.
I do not find Iram after 1816 Newspaper article where it states he lives in Moreau, NY at that time. I do see a listing in the returns of Adolphustown in 1814 for an Iram Murray. But find no death, probate, burial, land records for him in NY or Adolphustown area.
I really need help on this Scottish Family. It is said that they descend from Laughlin Campbells daughter Lilly who marries James Murray but I cant find anything between that and 1790. Help me Please.
