I am looking for relatives of my grandmother, Irene McMurtry-Laws, b. in 1900. She lived in Missouri. Her family also lived in Kentucky, and I was told were related to Daniel Boone somehow. Her parents were William Eldridge McMurtry and Marian Hannah McMurtry (Davidson).
Marian's mother was Isabelle Davidson (Turnbull).
If anyone has these names in their lines, please contact me.

Hello there. My family lived in Kansas City and Warsaw, Missouri. I understand that their family was from Kentucky before that. I see an Anne Boone in your line. Was that the family of Daniel Boone by chance? The reason I ask is that I have always been told that the McMurtry side of my family is related to Daniel Boone.
Any help is greatly appreciated. And I'll do anything I can to help you as well.

Do you know where your grandmother was born, or her parents? My family is from Washington, Co. MO around Ironton,starting around 1800. My branch moving South with my great grandfather. John McMurtry and Joesph McMurtry would be gg and ggg grandfathers. I would think your branch splintered off from this one. Forgive me if I'm repeating myself, I'm posting on several boards and the kid is yelling for me to get off the net (it's his bedtime and the computers in his room, more later).

hahahaha... Now don't keep the kid waitin mom. :-))
I'll ask my mother where my grandmother was born. I know that there is a lot of that side of the family in Kentucky. My grandmother's parents were William Eldridge McMurtry and Marian Hannah Davidson-McMurtry, if that helps any. I'll let you know as soon as I get the info from mom.

Have a good one,

I'm trying to locate info on my grandparents and ggparents. My gfather was Benjamin McMurtry and he was originally from Hickman, KY. His wife, my gmother, was Effie Jackson McMurtry. They moved to Tennessee sometime in the early 1900's. He died in Crockett County, TN. Do these names ring a bell to anyone??

Hi Barbara. I don't have those names, but I'll look into it for you. I'm also curious if those names are in my family as well.
My grandmother was Irene Isabelle Mcmrutry (Laws). She married Wallace G. Laws. They lived in Missouri. But her family was from Kentucky. I have a great aunt, her sister, who is still alive. I need to get with her, and I'll ask about your names as well.

Hope to give some good news soon..

I know nothing about my gfather's side of the family. My gmother's maiden name was Jackson and she had a sister named Anna, two brothers named Claude and either Marsh or Marshal. I think the sister and brothers ended up moving to TN but not positive. Anna had kids but I know nothing about them. I don't know if the brothers had children or not. thanks for your help.

I am looking for information on Isabel Bushong McMurtry, dob 2/2/1812 Monroe, Kentucky, died 3/24/1902 in Warsaw, Mo. She married my ggggrandfather Willis Davis 4/14/1836 in Monroe County, Kentucky. I have no parents information on her. Does this fit in with any information you have? Any help would be appreciated. I was born & raised near Kansas City, Ks., lived in Clinton, Missouri for awhile. Wasn't interested in research so much then. Thanks for help!
