Re: [Genealogy Research Club] Re: researching surnames
- Hi Scott, good to hear from you.
I have an Ephraim Murch who was born in Gorham, Me. and died in Castine. He had a son James. All of Ephraims children were born in Castine. I don't have any more info on James. I have connected most Murch's in Hancock County and I would be surprised if this wasn't your James. This James's lineage goes like this,
James b. 1817,
Ephraim Murch b. 2/1/1778 in Gorham, Me. and Rebecca Cobb,
Walter Murch b. 1736 in Biddeford, me. and Jerusha Brown,
Walter Murch b. abt. 1705 in York, Me. and Rebecca Garland,
Walter Murch and Deborah, not sure where they came from but there is
speculation they came from Devonshire, England.
I would like to have more info on James and his family and decendants.
If this is the correct James,our connection is Walter and Deborah. About ninth cousins. lol
Have a good day,

Hi David, I'm a Murch descendant, but not any of the other names.
My great grandmother was Lorena Murch from Bangor. Her father was Charles from Bangor, his father James from Castine Maine. I have a lot of info on those three folks, but have had a hard time going further back.
