The largest family of McMurrans in the USA are the descendants of Joseph McMURRAN b. 1758 in Co. Down, Ireland d. 15 Aug 1814 VA.  m. 1789 to Margaret Lowry b. 1764 d. 12 Sep
1846.  Joseph emigrated to the USA in 1775.  I have a printout version of a large tree of descendants. I would appreciate contact from anyone who has this in gedcom or other format that could be e-mailed to me. 
Miscellaneous McMURRAN references on the internet

Joseph McMurran (First Principal Shepherd College, Shepherdstown, WV from 1871-1882).  A Hampden-Sydney College graduate and a Confederate veteran of the Stonewall Brigade, McMurran resigned in 1882 because of the legislature's lack of financial support to Shepherd College. Principal McMurran occasionally paid for the College's expenses out of his own pocket. He became a partner in the drugstore firm of Baker and McMurran in Shepherdstown. He died in 1902.

from The Presidents of Shepherd College
