Query: William McBurney, Crawford County

           Looking for information on William J. McBurney, born 1825. He arrived in New York  in 1854 from Scotland on the ship Western Empire. Married in 1855 to Eliza; first child Elizabeth Jane, born in Ohio 1856.
           He settled in Crawford County, Indiana, served in the Civil War; he was a farmer and possibly a  peddler.  He died May 2, 1881.
          Trying to make the connection to his homeland in Scotland and find his burial site in Indiana. He isn't buried with his wife.
