Good morning, Frank
This is the most wonderful news!!! Daniel was the great grandfather of 1820 Settler, James Murray; we have extensive records of the family since arrival in South Africa, but no-one had sucessfully traced his ancestry back to Scotland, so I thought I would have a try. I managed only 3 generations before reaching a dead-end with Daniel
Mow, thanks to your answer, we have direct lineage to the Murrays of Tullibardine, then to Freskin (1107), the Flemish Counts and beyond
Has John (Daniel) emerged in your previous research, or do you have a hot-line to the Messner Tree manager? Also, what is the significance of the codes in your second reply?
I'm pushing my luck here, but do you have any idea as to why he changed his name?
Thank you once again, Frank; we are deeply indebted to you!
