Charles Murdock was born in 1858 in Washington, D.C. In the 1900 federal census, he was listed as an architect in Omaha, though he was not found in any Omaha directories 1866-1915. Murdock was the principal of Murdock & Sons, but the dates of practice are currently unknown. He was married to Elizabeth and had at least three children.[3] Murdock was not found in Nebraska during searches through the U.S. Censuses of 1880 and 1910.
