Welcomes You to:
Cass County, Illinois


Your Cass County host is Roger Bruce Whitaker.

I was born in Beardstown back when there was a hospital there. Growing up in the country near Virginia, close to Shiloh Church. I attended school in Virginia. Some of my ancestors were in Cass County by 1826 so I've got some roots there I'll be very grateful for suggestions for content from you, the visitors to the site. 
Please feel free to e-mail Roger.

We regret that we are unable to perform personal research for folks.
All data we come across will be added to this site. We thank you for visiting and hope you'll come back again to view the updates we make to this site.

If anyone has information that you would like to see 
on this site, please contact Roger

Many thanks to original Cass County host Pat Hageman for all her hard work in developing this site.
