Isaac Burner Residence
Isaac Burner Residence
Isaac, his wife Susan, and his family moved in October 1832 to New Salem where he bought two lots for $10 and erected a residence. His daughter, Elizabeth, married Isaac Gulihur, whose home site is to the west. Isaac's son, Daniel Green Burner, for a while worked at the second Berry-Lincoln Store. The Burner family left New Salem in 1835 when they moved to the country about six miles south of Knoxville, IL. A common feature of early log homes was the sleeping loft.
