Farm of Leartis "Lee" W. Cox, Sec. 32, Twp. 15, Rng. 9, Morgan Co., Il, purchased in 1840 from Samuel Magill.
This engraving was published in the 1872 "Old Settlers of Morgan Co." However, I was able to contact a "cousin" who had a mounted, "colorized" copy. She was gracious enough to let me have it.
