      Much confusion on LDS FamilySearch Family Tree. Has he been incorrectly merged with a James MURCH who died in 1871 in Australia? How can he have arrived there in 1850, when he appears on the 1851 census in the UK? How can his wife have travelled to Australia in 1854, when she appears with James on the 1861 census?
