Jersey County Page     Early Settlers

Early Illinois SettlersList of those who resided in Illinois 1833 or earlier and who were residents of Jersey County in 1883. The list is interesting in that it includes women. Note that while the information for women lists them by married name, it does give their birthplace and when they came to Illinois, which usually differs from their husband. The list includes one person of color. The earliest settler is in bold, and a woman. Jersey County was St. Clair until 1812, Madison until 1821, Greene until 1839.

From Jersey County Democrat, June 7, 1883.
