Warren Murdock was born on 18 Jun 1804 in Casenovia, New York, and died 24 Apr 1890 in Spartansburg, Pennsylvania. 
The 1850 census reveals that Warren Murdock, responsible for the wellbeing of his wife and children, is also the caretaker of his mother Katherine Ames and his father William Murdock, as well as two additional people by the surname Pratt. It is possible that these two Pratts, one of whom is named Warren Pratt, are relations, perhaps siblings or cousins of his wife, Charlotte.
Warren Murdock, as were many of his time, was a farmer and fairly prosperous in terms of his land ownership. One may see a map from about 1876, which shows the land he owned as well as land owned by other Murdocks and other locals to the Crawford County, PA area. The map is available to view for free from ancestortracks. 
On 6, May, 1868, The Titusville Herald of Titusville, Pennsylvania listed Warren Murdock, as well as others, as Grand Jurors for "the second Monday of June, 1868".
On 16 Aug 1876, Warren Murdock created a will . The will was registered by H.M Dickson, Register on 13, May 1890. To his wife Charlotte, he wished her to have "...all things necessary for her comfort." To his son, Alonzo, he bequeathed "...the ballance [spelling as it was written] of my real and personal property..." But Warren Murdock also expected Alonzo to dole out the following to Warren's other children and grandchildren: To grandsons Harvey and William Ketchum each $200; to his daughter Betsey A (Murdock) Parker, $1.00; to his son Franklin Murdock , $200; to his daughter Lucinda (Murdock) Aikins, $500; to his son Lyman Murdock, $5.00. Alonzo D. Murdock and Charlotte (Pratt) Murdock were made the executors, and the will was witnessed by three of the Gray family: Wm (William) Gray, Louisa Gray, and Addie Gray. The record  is available online, though if you're not directed to the exact page, then move to page 106 (within that document).
There are many interesting issues related to the will. For one, Charlotte had already passed away, so it remained for Alonzo to carry out the instructions. One can but surmise how he or any of the others felt amount the sums allotted to various members of the family. Why did one daughter receive $500 and the other but $1.00? Is it a message, a form of punishment, or did he perchance help her out at some earlier time?
A scanned copy of the Marriage Page of the Murdock Family Bible, which is available on Ancestry, says that Charlotte Pratt and Warren Murdock were married , Jun 1831. Need to create Alonzo's bio, and also that of Betsey... simply to see if there is a reason she received but $1.00
