James Murray was born in Scotland about 1830. In 1831, when about a year old, his family moved to Sidney, Ohio. He was educated in the public schools, and admitted to the bar in 1851. He immediately relocated to Perrysburg, Ohio. He was elected Ohio Attorney General in 1860, and served one term. He remained a resident of Wood County, Ohio until the close of his term, and then returned to Sidney, where he passed in 1879. The only other political office he ever held was as mayor of Perrysburg.
