1 A Gazetteer of Illinois In Three Parts Containing a General View of the State, a General View of Each County, and a particular description of each town, settlement, stream, prairie, bottom, bluff, etc.; alphabetically arranged
J. M. Peck
(1834), 2007, 5x8, paper, index, 378 pp, Heritage Books
Gazetteers are wonderful, compact encyclopedias that provide detailed information about a specific place at a specific time. For family history researchers, gazetteers can hold the key to an ancestral mystery in their wealth of material relating to dates, settlements, county boundaries, population, and more. First compiled in 1834 and revised in 1837, this gazetteer provides a topographical and historical picture of Illinois in the early days. The author enthusiastically proclaims, "No state in the 'Great West' has attracted so much attention, and elicited so many enquiries from those who desire to avail themselves of the advantages of a settlement in a new and rising country, as that of Illinois; and none is filling up so rapidly with an emigrating population from all parts of the United States, and several kingdoms of Europe." This second edition was considered necessary due to the rapid changes of the state in just three years, including the creation of ten new counties. A new index of places increases the usefulness of this book.
