170 pages with 35 total maps Locating original landowners in maps
has never been an easy task-until now. This volume in the Family
Maps series contains newly created maps of original landowners
(patent maps) in what is now DuPage County, Illinois, gleaned from
the indexes of the Illinois State Archives. But it offers much more
than that. For each township in the county, there are two
additional maps accompanying the patent map: a road map and a map
showing waterways, railroads, and both modern and many historical
city-centers and cemeteries. Included are indexes to help you
locate what you are looking for, whether you know a person's name,
a last name, a place-name, or a cemetery. The combination of maps
and indexes are designed to aid researchers of American history or
genealogy to explore frontier neighborhoods, examine family
migrations, locate hard-to-find cemeteries and towns, as well as
locate land based on legal descriptions found in old documents or
deeds. The patent-maps are essentially plat maps but instead of
depicting owners for a particular year, these maps show original
landowners, no matter when the transfer from the federal government
was completed. Dates of patents typically begin near the time of
statehood and run into the early 1900s. What's Mapped in this book
(that you'll not likely find elsewhere) . . . 2563 Parcels of Land
(with original landowner names and patent-dates labeled in the
relevant map) 61 Cemeteries plus . . . Roads, and existing Rivers,
Creeks, Streams, Railroads, and Small-towns (including some
