Both Martin and Margaret have two Find a Grave memorials, one with the gravesite in Bishop Cemetery and one in Evergreen Memorial Cemetery (both cemeteries are in McLean Co, IL).  The Bishop memorial is the only one showing a picture of the gravestone for Martin but both memorials for Margaret shows what appears to be the same gravestone so it is impossible for me to tell which is the correct location for their interments.

His first spouse, Myrtilla Jane McRoberts died in 1848 so the oldest 4 children listed in the 1850 census are likely hers while the 6 youngest (Martin, infant Tupper and the 4 that are listed in the 1860 and 1870 censuses) are Margaret's.

Margaret is listed as divorced in 1880 while Martin's listing in Chicago (L Martin Bishop) has him as widowed.  He remarried in 1881 to Sarah (Meads) Robinson.  That marriage had his residence as Chicago which supports the 1880 census listing there.

The death record lists him as married and buried in Heyworth.
