Cory and all,
Actually, I have had MURLIN added to my GenForum list for quite some time. Just haven't had time to post--I too requested the MURLIN forum since I have a murky knowledge of my MURLIN family prior to Civil War.
My grandmother, Frances Meredith MURLIN d/o Abraham MURLIN and Matilda A. SHIRLEY, was b. abt. 1887 in Sumner Co. KS; she md. Daniel Carroll MEAD also b. Sumner Co. KS s/o James K. MEAD b. MO and Celia Ann Owen (nee Edwards) b. IL.
Abraham MURLIN and his twin Daniel MURLIN were b. near St. Mary's, Mercer Co. OH and along with 6 other brothers, joined the Union in the Civil War. Abraham enlisted in 31st Infantry, Company C. Mercer Co. OH and marched to the sea with Sherman's forces. Among others, he fought at the Battle of Chickamauga. He and his wife settled in Paola KS, where they both died. (I have obits)
Brother Daniel was wounded and returned home prior to the end of the war. He lived in Holden MO, I believe, at the time of his death. I have an obit somewhere.
I also have a number of photographs inherited from my mother.
Father of Abram and Daniel MURLIN was William MURLIN. I know the family migrated to Hardin Co. KY at one point, and a sister Sarah (?) was born there. Am not sure where they went next but ultimately they were in KS. I do not know where William MURLIN (my gg-grandfather) was born, where he died or is buried, or who his wife (my gg-grandmother) was.
I have seen FTM notations that William MURLIN was in OH and both William and Thomas MURLIN were in NY for various censuses between 1830 and 1860.
Our family tradition has it that William MURLIN and brother Thomas MURLIN came over to America from England. They were associated with John Wesley and Methodist movement. My mother found the burial place of William and Thomas MURLIN's brother in the same London Chapel where John Wesley is buried.
If you have any records on this family or if we are connected in any way I would appreciate hearing from you.
We have a very large group of MURLIN descendants from Frances Meredith MURLIN and Daniel Carroll MEAD scattered throughout the U.S., including KS, MO, OK, NY, KY, FL, CA, NV, WY, OR, TX
