WHAM Family

First Generation

1. William Mcmillan Martin1 Wham was born 1821. William died 1889.

He married Sarah Evans 1854. Sarah was born 1827. She married Unknown Harmon after 1890. Sarah died 1922.

William was listed as the head of a family on the 1860 Census. William was listed as the head of a family on the 1870 Census.

William Mcmillan Martin Wham and Sarah Evans had the following child:

child 2 i. Rose Elmira Twintella2 Wham was born in IL. September 5, 1860. Rose died July 22, 1935 in IL., at 74 years of age. Her body was interred after July 22, 1935 in Marion Co.,IL., Bell. She married David L. White in IL., 1878. David was born in TN. or IL. June 1, 1859. Birthplace is given as IL on 1870 Marion Co.,IL census. But I could not find William & Almiranda White in Marion Co.,IL in 1860. Also, family story says William & Almarinda came to IL. in a one-horse wagon with baby David. Lucy Eunice White Schultz stated in a letter dated May 23,1986 that it took them 3 weeks to make the trip. They came before the Civil War. Also says that William's father owned 18 slaves when he left TN. Unsure if that meant when William left or that William's father also left. He was the son of William Alexander White and Almarinda Bates.

David died December 9, 1899 in IL., at 40 years of age. His body was interred after December 9, 1899 in Marion Co.,IL., Bell. (See David L. White for the continuation of this line.)
