MURRAY/MURRY - 1. William McLean4 Murry (James3, William2, John1) was born 1759 in Paxtang, Lancaster (now Dauphin Co., created 1785), PA, and died August 24, 1848 in Wilson Co., TN. He married Pameila Unknown Abt. 1784. She was born 1764, and died May 28, 1848 in Wilson Co., TN. If anyone is working on this line, please share information, if you can and visit my website for some of what I've learned about this family so far. I descend from William & Pameila's son James L.5 Murry (notice the spelling changed) (William McLean4, James3, William2, John1) was born Abt. 1798. He married Cassa Yarnell December 28, 1819 in Wilson Co., TN. She was born Abt. 1800. Their family name in 1750 Lancaster Co., PA was mostly spelled MURRAY.
