The following is a list of people who settled in Logan County before 1840 according to the 1878 History of Logan County, IL. It was transcribed by Marge Farmer and sorted alphabetically to make it easier to find ancestors. Before 1839 the area was Sangamon County. Thus we believe [but have no way to verify] a designation of "Sangamon County" means the compiler did not know exactly where the person settled. [See the history page for settlement patterns. Most -- but not all -- of the early settlement was in the south end of the county.] All abbreviations are from the History. We are aware this list is not complete or totally accurate -- it only reflects the information in the 1878 History. It was a club of sorts [records of the meetings exist] and if you didn't join or have relatives to put your name forward you weren't listed.
