MONROE COUNTY ILLINOIS TRAILS
1807 Knox County Territorial Census

©Illinois Trails History and Genealogy
http://www.iltrails.org

In the late 1700's and early 1800, when Illinois was in its statehood birthing, the government was trying to get a count of residents, very typical of our current day census. Many times these "counts" included transients as well as those pioneers whom had established homes in the area.
Below is a partial listing of some of those people.
The numbers behind the names are still being questioned at this writing.
Possibly the number of acreage they owned?
When they are identified, that information will be included here.

The map showing Knox Co. indicates it included at least the area now occupied by the Illinois Counties of Hardin, Gallatin, White, Edwards, Wabash, Lawrence, Clark and Crawford, in the SE section of the state.

These early settlers, with their families, continued moving westward, populating Southern Illinois to the Mississippi River, then beyond to the great Western Frontier.
