I am trying to find out more about a Charlie/ Charles Durkee who lived in Alden Township, McHenry Co,Illinois or close to there. He is mentioned in a written memoir as "Uncle Charlie" toFrederick Silas Baird.
As Frederick Baird's father Silas was from Vermont (either Goshen or Chittenden) I was searching for the connection in the 2 families.
I have a Caroline Melissa Durkee married to Wolcott Jr. in 1861. She is the daughter of Nathan Durkee (b. 1795) and Mary Biglow. I do have information on Nathan's family -but can find no Charles.
