  • Name One Murrow 
    Gender Unknown 
    Died Bef 1857 
    Notes 
    • From Leslie Murrow Morris:

      My mother told me that her grandparents, Richard Murrow and Louisa Mesney, had four children. All four died at once, and then they had eleven more. I know of no more details.

      The page from Vivienne Murrow Sornson's girlhood journal appears to verify that they had at least two children who died in the black plague. Why that information is scratched out, I do not know.

      My mother may have said four in error, or I may have erred in remembering four instead of two.
