This list was gathered from the 1876 History of the Early Settlers of Sangamon County, Illinois by Powers. I have taken the featured individuals and listed the various towns and/or geographical locations that they settled. Some individuals lived in more than one area. Some areas were described in more than one way. I did not list all the places the various family members lived, only the places the featured individual lived. Use your FIND command found under your EDIT tab to find all the places your person might have lived. I did not include all of the featured individuals because many simply listed Sangamon without mentioning any a particular place. Please forgive omissions, they were unintentional.


As with any abstracted record, one should refer to the original source to verify the correctness. This list was composed only to help those locate the area of their ancestor in order to find the possible burial place, land records, etc.. No claim has been made to assert that every entry is listed or correct. Many thanks to Cherie for her contribution!
