Subject: [GENMASSACHUSETTS] Need help with this family
Date: Sun, 26 Oct 2008 17:28:26 -0400
I would like to hear from anyone that connects to this family;
3. WILLIAM2 MURRAY (CHARLES1) was born 1828 in Nova Scotia, Canada. He married SUSAN MCKAY 01 Jan 1857 in Hillsborough, Albert Co., N.B., daughter of WILLIAM MCKAY and OLIVE (?). She was born 1838 in Hillsborough, Albert Co., N.B..
William and his family do not appear in the 1881 census for Canada, produced on CD, by the LDS church. However, I have obtained the page from NB Archives, and they do appear as family # 11, in Dist. 23, Sub Dist. 1, (Hopewell), page 3. (Thomas A. Henry, Enumerator).
Marriage Notes for WILLIAM MURRAY and SUSAN MCKAY: January 17 1857- Newspaper New Brunswick Courier; - m. 1st inst., residence of bride's father, by same, William MURRAY / Miss Susan Mc KAY, all of Hillsborough (Albert Co.)
Children of WILLIAM MURRAY and SUSAN MCKAY are:
i. GEORGE WILLIAM3 MURRAY, b. 1858, Hillsborough, Albert Co., N.B.; d. 07 Nov 1888, Hillsborough, Albert Co., N.B..
Notes for GEORGE WILLIAM MURRAY:

d. Hillsboro (Albert Co.) Nov. 7, of consumption, George Murray, age 31. Mr. Murray was a native of Hillsboro. He spent a few years in Boston, Mass. engaged in mercantile pursuits until his health failed about 18 months ago when he retired from work and returned to Hillsboro. His parents, William Murray and wife, were sent for and arrived here from Boston a short time before their son died. He leaves a widow. Mr. Murray died at the residence of James Blight.

vii. JOHN A.A. MURRAY, b. 1874, Hillsborough, Albert Co., N.B..
viii EDWIN STEVENS MURRAY2, b. 16 Jan 1877, Hillsborough, Albert Co., N.B..
This Murray family is believed to have gone to the "Boston States" in the early to mid 1800's.
I have been unable to find any trace of them in Canadian documention, post 1881.
Any help much appreciated.
