Northern Illinois 1825 Tax List

This was published in an ISGS publication - The original was part of the Chicago Historical Society's Manuscript Collections. The opening paragraph in the ISGS publication states:

"The Chicago Historical Society Manuscript Collections contains a valuable tax list for the year 1825 covering much of northern Illinois. At the time the area was included in Peoria County and Chicago was a precinct thereof. The assessment covered both personal and real property. Names thereon are as follows:"

Transcriber's note: If you look at the 1825 Illinois map, much of the northern part of the state is actually covered under PUTNAM county, NOT Peoria county.

Question marks (?) are the original transcriber's, not ours.
This is basically a transcription of a transcription, so the original source should be consulted whenever possible.
