Early Land Entries

The following list is compiled from various sources including the

“History of Logan County, Illinois Vol.1” by Lawrence B. Stringer

Pioneer Publishing Company, Chicago, 1911

 

Names are only entered once in the year the first entry was made, even if there were subsequent land entries. At the time of the land entry, many of the townships had not yet been formed, but eventually all these land entries were incorporated into Mt. Pulaski, Logan County, Illinois. As you can see from the chart below, most of the land purchases were made in the years 1835, 1836 and 1837.
