Old Settlers who do not appear on the records of the Old Settlers Society

[Source: compiled by Capt. J.E. Cooper, the names of some old residents of Jersey County, who do not appear on the records of the Old Settlers Society. These persons, in 1870, had resided for at least forty years in the state of Illinois, were at that time fifty years of age and over, and residents of Jersey County. Where Greene County is mentioned as the place of settlement on coming to Illinois, it refers in many instances to what in 1839 became Jersey County.]
