THE 212 PERSONS WHO "ENTERED LAND"

"The following is a list of all those who "entered land" (i.e. bought from the government), within the present limits of Cass County, Illinois, including the "three mile strip," before the deep snow in the winter of 1830-31, and in what township and in what year the entry was made. Where a person "entered land" in more than one township, his name is given for that tract only which he first entered."

[Many thanks to Joan for this contribution.]

Those persons whose year of purchase has an asterisk, also appear in
the Public Domain Tract LAND SALES.
