This is an ILGenWeb Project.  Our goal is to have this project for each of the counties in Illinois.  As the  coordinator, I volunteered to transcribed the PDF pensioner pages to text format to display here.

These old 'type print' pages were very small and hard to read.  It took the best of one's ability to transcribe and proof read the data.

Somtimes names were spelled wrong and numbers could not be read.  But I am a strong believer to display "as it is written" and this is another example of that.  When text or  number(s) could not be read, it is italic and when some thing could not be read at all, it  was replaced with a dash (-).

Many thanks to Sue Armstrong for the laughs, long hours, for proof reading this.
