A friend that passed on, Iris Zimmer, was the Carlinville Illinois Librarian.
She spent years extracting Macoupin Co info by surname!
These records were from census, land records, bios, tax, cemetery,
each folder has one surname with solid research info in it. Some files are
20-30 pages of compiled info for each surname in the county. Check with the
Carlinville Public Library to see if they will make copies of the surname
