Welcome to Illinois ...
Although we found mention of Illinois during our research, we have little information about it.<1> Given the context of how Illinois was mentioned, we believe that it was a community rather than some type of landmark. We have done a cursory search and if it's a community, we haven't been able to find any evidence that it still exists.
While we are confident that Illinois was located in Jefferson County, we don't know its actual location within the county.
We've added Illinois to our Gazetteer with the hope that we can develop more information. We would especially like to find the location of Illinois - knowing its coordinates, we can explore things like its relationship to neighboring communities, nearby cemeteries, etc. If you can help us with Illinois, please Contact Us.
