They were merchants of various businesses, Preachers and farmers and many are buried in the cemetary that Edgar Lee Masters based his poetry on. It would be interesting to read as I have done much Ancestrial research, especially of this area in Illinois, where many family members reside.
I also did not learn of this book until last year and have been searching for a decent copy, most originals are antique and fetch top collector dollars $$.
I always find even the most obscure titles that you would think impossible to find at Powell's.(I reside in the Vanc Wa area)
Look forward to receiving the book! Knew I could count on you guys!
