Thomas James MacMurray
Thomas J. MacMurray was born in Scotland on July 23, 1852. "As minister, lawyer, printer, poet, author, editor, Mr. MacMurray has had somewhat of a varied career, considering that he is yet but comparatively a young man. He came to Canada when ten years of age, and was thoroughly educated, graduating at a theological college. He was connected with the Detroit conference in 1877, and four years later came to the Wisconsin conference. In 1883 he was admitted to the Wisconsin bar."
