McMurchy and "Murch"

Postby dwmc2 » Mon Jul 19, 2021 4:42 pm

I am from John Porter and Jennet McNair, who left Kintyre in 1820. John died in Ohio shortly after (1821) and Jennet married James McMurchy (b. 1774, Campbeltown) who had migrated before. John Porter was the son of William Porter (b. about 1750) and Helen Thompson (?). James McMurchy was the son of William McMurchy and Jennet (or Anne) Clark.

Question: I am encountering the name "Murch" in searches, but none (so far) proven to be McMurchys who dropped the "Mc." Is Murch a common "version" of McMurchy? (or McMurchie)

Thanks

Hi... And welcome to the Kintyre Forum.

As this is your first post, I take it that you have not already posted a similar question. Normally, this should be on the genealogical section.

PPleas may I ask if you are on Ancestry, using the name Colville/Crawford ? If so, then you know more than me. If not, this is what I have..........
