In the Illinois State census of 1842 there was a lack of information
regarding residents of Hancock County. Taken from microfilm records held
by the Family History Library in Salt Lake, it lists property owners in
Hancock County in August of 1842. Each record provides the individual's
name, coordinate location of property, and the page of the original record.
For the researchers of ancestors of Hancock County, this can be a helpful
guide to some very detailed information. If you have an ancestor that is
not here and you know for sure he/she was in the county at that time, they
were not on this list because, I have not yet searched for that surname
yet, they paid no tax, or had nothing that was taxable. The names
that are on this list is all that I have. In otherwords, All the Adams
surnames that were on the tax list are listed here. If you find a name
on the list and want to know if there are any more Jones' (for example)
no there is not. All of them are on this list.
Please Email me to see if I have your surname
