Hiram Burritt's parents were Reed and Dorothy (Jaquish) Burritt. They died in Burdette, Schuyler Co., New York, he on 26 Nov 1859 & Dorothy on 16 Sep 1849.

Hiram was the 3rd of 6 children born to Reed and Dorothy.
His siblings were Sallie, Betsy, George, John & Ann.

Hiram was an early pioneer in Illinois. He married Julia Ann Ford on 31 Mar 1839 in Lake Co., Illinois.

These are from notes in my FTM file:
He located on extreme part of Cook Co. which became part of McHenry Co & then Lake Co. He made a claim for 160A 3 miles from Wauconda & resided there until 1840 & then returned to NY. Returned to Wisconsin & remained until 11/1855. During his time in Wisconsin he purchased 111A & built a house.
When he disposed of Wisconsin home he moved to Atlanta, Logan Co., IL where he purchased land & also engaged in the meat market business.
About 2yrs later(1857?) he traded farm for property abt. 4 mi south of the village of Tremont in Tazwell Co. He stayed there 2yrs (abt 1859)& returned to Lake Co, locating in Aug. of 1859 in Ela Twp purchasing a farm of 154 A. Sold this farm in 1865 after renting it out for a few years. He then bought a home in Wauconda 12/22/1862.
Served in numerous offices. Information found on pages 761-763 in PBALC.
