I am seeking information about William D. Burkam b. 22 Dec 1816 in VA, d. 1895 in Macon Co., IL
He was married twice: (1) Sarah Wyats 1815-1856 (2) Margaret Emily Bullock 1838-
His second marriage was in Scott Co., IL on 18 Sep 1856, and three children were born to William Burkam and Margaret Emily Bullock:Abram 1857, and Margaret Theresa and her twin (name unknown) on 25 Dec 1861.For reasons unknown to my family, Margaret Theresa Burkam was adopted by a family named Tuttle.
Does anyone have any information on this family?We would especially like to know the name of Margaret's twin sister or brother and the circumstances of her adoption and would also like to know what became of her mother.
It appears tht William D. Burkam continued to live near Decatur in Macon County, Illinois until his death in in 1895.
