To provide some information to aid in others' MURLIN research, I am posting some of the information I have thus far on my MURLIN family:
The MURLIN family was allied with the John WESLEY "non-conformist" movement in England, which later became the Wesleyan Methodist Church. [A brother of William MURLIN is buried in the same London chapel where John Wesley is buried, in case anyone is visiting London and cares to check it out. My mother saw the burial engraving in the 1970s when my parents traveled to England during Queen Elizabeth's Silver Jubilee celebration.]
1st generation in America (b. England):
William MURLIN [1789-1850]shows up on the FTM Marriage CD 400
Also have an old tin-type photo of another MURLIN --possibly Burdine?? who was md. to Clara and had 5 children at the time of his death in Paola, Miami KS on 25 Jan 1880/5: W.E. MURLIN, age 20; Z.A. MURLIN, age 17; Clara B. MURLIN, age 13; Dell MURLIN, age 11; and Burdine MURLIN (age 5).
Eight of William MURLIN's ten sons, including Abraham and Daniel MURLIN, enlisted to serve in the Civil War--only 1 lost his life. At 19, Abraham & twin Daniel enlisted from Mercer Co. in the OH 31st Infantry, Co. C. I have an old KS newspaper clipping about some of the twin brothers' Civil War experience, and another about a 70th? joint birthday celebration for the twin brothers. [Bro. Daniel MURLIN and his wife Mersey (sp?)CARBAUGH lived in Holden, MO and had a son, Herbert also of Holden MO.]
If anyone is interested in any of this additional info or obits, I will send this via email as well as Abram MURLIN's service record shown in a reference book from the Ohio State Archives.
"Tillie" SHIRLEY & Abraham MURLIN had 4 children - b. Sugar Creek Twp, Sumner Co. KS
I have photos of each of the above siblings and most of their spouses/children.
3rd generation/my lineage:
My mother Esther Frances MEAD was b. 10 Dec 1913 Miami Co. KS; d. 28 Mar 1997 Los Angeles Co. She married 10 Feb 1945 San Diego CA to
Janice Lynn SHEPHERD b. Los Angeles Co. CA; md. Los Angeles Co. CA Michael Lewis BEEVER b.Los Angeles Co. CA.
Donald Robert SHEPHERD b.Los Angeles Co. CA; m. & div. Julie Ann MOORE.
That's it, folks! I have many photos and obits if any are needed for birth/death dates, marriages etc. for the Frances Meredith MURLIN or Esther Frances MEAD SIBLINGS.
Just ask--I'll try to respond right away. For a quicker reply, email me directly. I would also appreciate hearing from you directly if you have any specific information to share.
