      SHIRLEY MOLLER
      I figured out how Eleanor Hill met and married Dr. Murray in Dorchester Co.
      Her step son -in-law Francis Lee, husband of her step dau. Elizabeth Hollyday was probably a merchant or store owner and had business in Dorchester and Anne Arundel Co.'s , as his Admin Estate was filed there also, besides Cecil Co., where he died.
