    2. [S193] History of Robert Wood Murray, Sarah Brenchley, (Viewed online 2 Apr 2005 at History of father, Robert Wood Murray, records birth occurring on 23 Feb 1849; however birth date on headstone is 23 Feb 1848. The history also records that Robert Wood Murray and their two small children joined the Mormon church on July 14, 1848. Because David would have been one of two living children on this date, the 1848 headstone birth year is believed more credible.
