Eng and Chang Bunker Become U.S. Citizens 1839
Wilkes County Court Minutes Docket A, October 12, 1839. Eng and Chang, the Siamese Twins, are naturalized to become U.S. citizens as residents of NC. In the fall of 1844 they went from being “the Siamese Twins” to “Eng and Chang Bunker”. I don’t know why they picked Bunker, but it became official in the Fall of 1844.
