Prairie Farmer's Reliable Directory
Farmers and Breeders
Morgan and Scott Counties Illinois
Published by Prairie Farmer - 1917
According to information given at the beginning of this directory, the year which is
shown in the "In Co." column represents the year the owner/tenant listed in the "Name" column became a resident
of the county. In some cases, the year appears to be the year of the individual's
birth. However, despite information provided in the forward, I wonder if the year given, in some cases, mistakenly
indicates the year the family settled on this particular farm rather than the year of residency.
Additional information given for each entry, but not included here is the name
of the farm (if named), whether the person named is the owner or tenant, farm owner's
name if the family listed are tenants, size of the farm, Post Office, and
location of the farm (Section, Precinct, Township & Range), & Farm Hand's Name. I'll be happy to provide this additional information if you wish, just contact me.
In this volume, as is normally the case, there are mis-spelled names, so be sure to
check all possible spellings.
