It would be safe to assume that Thomas & Catherine married in NY somewhere as two of the three census readings indicate that as Francis/Frank's birthplace (abt 1857). John is born abt 1859 in WI.

There are about 58 Thomas Murray's in NY in the 1850 Census readings!

Frank is still in Oshkosh in 1900 Census, Ward 5 as a shoemaker.
Thomas Jr is in Minnesota
Robert is in Illinois

Janet,
Thank You SSSOOO much for all the info on the Murray's. Now if I can pinpoint Catherine to be a 'McCormick', I will know this is part of my family. She would be the sister of my ggf John McCormick. Thank you again, Judy
