The McMURRINs in the USA
Created 21 January 2000/last update 18 October 2005

A large family descended from David McMurrin who spell the surname McMurrain and McMurrian is covered on The McMurrai(ia)ns in the USA site.
Sterling M. McMurrin (d.1996) was a well-known intellectual and professor at the University of Utah from the 1940's to the 1980's. He served as U.S. Commissioner of Education under President John F. Kennedy. In his work with the Aspen Institute of the Humanities, he came to know many of the pillars of the political and cultural establishment of the United States. Yet for all of his eminence in the secular world, McMurrin will probably be remembered for his writing and influence on the Mormon Church. He described himself as a "loyal heretic:" he openly expressed his disbelief in many fundamental doctrines of Mormonism. But he really never left Utah and was always sympathetic to the church when contacted for comment by the national media. (extracted from Matters of Conscience: Conversations With Sterling M. McMurrin)

FAMILY OF JAMES LEROY MCMURRIN
First Generation

 James Leroy MC MURRIN b.c.1861, Linde, Gotland, Sweden, m. 16 Mar 1887, Logan, Cache, Utah, Mary JACOBSDOTTER b. 22 Feb 1865, Linde, Gotland, Sweden, d.26 Oct 1949 (daughter of Ingman Wilhelm JACOBSSON and Catharina Jacobina Lorentina JACOBSDOTTER).


JOSEPH W. McMURRIN'S LIFE SAVED BY THE PRIESTHOOD (taken from http://www.xmission.com/~dkenison/lds/ch_hist/arc/jwm_blsg.html)
(Compiled and written by David Kenison, Orem, Utah, dkenison@xmission.com)

Joseph W. McMurrin was born in 1858 in Tooele. He grew up in Salt Lake, and served a "colonizing mission" to Arizona as a 17-year-old youth where he helped
establish the town of St. Joseph; a few years later he served a proselyting mission to Great Britain.

On Nov. 28, 1885, an incident occurred which should have taken the life of Elder McMurrin, who had a wife and two children at the time. Elder Heber J. Grant later
described the events:

"In the days of the 'underground' when more than a thousand of our men went to the penitentiary for living with their wives whom they had married in good faith, a
man by the name of Joseph W. McMurrin was guarding the servants of the Lord.

The brethren were holding a meeting in the Social Hall. A deputy U. S. marshal came to the back door where Joseph W. McMurrin was standing, and Joseph put his
arms around him to keep him from going through that door. The deputy finally got his hand loose and took his pistol and, pressing it against Brother McMurrin's
body, fired two bullets clear through his vitals. Those bullets lodged just under the skin in his back. He was attended by Dr. Joseph Benedict who told Joseph W.
McMurrin that no man could live after two bullets had passed through his vitals, and then added: 'If you wish to make a dying statement you should do so
immediately.'

"I went with John Henry Smith to Brother McMurrin's home and saw where the flesh was burned away around those terrible gaping wounds. I saw where the bullets
had gone clear through him. I heard John Henry Smith say, 'By the authority of the Priesthood of the living God which we hold, and in the name of the Lord, Jesus
Christ, we say that you shall be made absolutely whole, and that there shall be no physical weakness left upon your body because of these terrible wounds that you
have received while guarding the servants of the living God.'

"Joseph W. McMurrin is alive and well, and has never had any physical weakness because of those terrible wounds. Tell me that sickness is not cured by spiritual
power, by the power of God, in the Church of Jesus Christ! I know that it is as well as I know that I live." (Heber J. Grant, _Gospel Standards_, pp. 310-311)

The following year, Elder McMurrin was called on another mission to Great Britain, and he served there for more than four years. His wife and children were blessed
to accompany him on that mission. Another incident occurred during that time:

"While in London he was suddenly seized with an illness that caused him great pain for a considerable time. It appeared to be appendicitis that troubled him. His
missionary companions administered to him, and through the prayer of faith he was instantly healed, and has never since been troubled in the same way. Again he had
occasion to acknowledge the goodness and power of God exercised in his behalf."

Elder McMurrin was called as one of the First Seven Presidents of Seventies in 1897 at age 39, and served until his death at age 74.
