Helping hands helping one another with our family history & genealogy research.
I am trying to trace my gg grandparents - William Murray born approx. 1806 in Scotland (rumor has it in Jappa but no proof) died Nov 9, 1880 in West Bromwich Staffordshire England. I am looking for names and dates for his parents, siblings and proof of his birth in Scotland. I know from the writings of my great uncle David Christie Murray, that William had a brother named Adam Goudie Murray. The family rumor is that we are related to the Athol of Murray Stuart. (and I have a great uncle who was named Stuart Murray). William married Mary Withers on Dec 27, 1836 in All Saints Church, West Bromwich. Mary Withers was born in Newcastle-under-Lyme Staffordshire England around May 18th 1816-17. Although I have a copy of the parish record of her birth it is not very readable. So I am also looking for names and dates of her parents and siblings. Mary died July 22, 1874. I think she had a brother whos name was either Isaiah or Josiah. As that is the name on the copy of the parish marriage record. There is a Josiah Withers that shows up in the 1851 Census.
any help would be greatly appreciated
