Cahokia books B & C, land records (1800-1820) and historical material (ca. 1671-1819) --, 1671-1820

[Raymond H. Hammes]
Manuscript/Manuscript on Film
  • English
  • French
Salt Lake City, Utah : Filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah, 1988
on 1 microfilm reel : ill., maps. ; 16 mm.


Microreproduction of original manuscripts at the Illinois State Genealogical Society, Springfield, Illinois.

Text in English with some (very little) French.

Books B & C of the Cahokia record books have been given a separate description from Book A, which is on the same roll of film, because of differences in jurisdiction.

These mss. represent vols. 4-5 of the Raymond H. Hammes Collection.

"All entries pertain to St. Clair County as it existed in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries and to the inhabitants of the villages then within its borders: Cahokia, the county seat, Prairie de [sic] Pont, Harrison, Prairie du Chien, Peoria, Michillimackinac, and Bellefontaine"--Bk. B, foreword, 1st prelim. page.

Prairie du Chien, however, was & is in present-day Crawford County, Wisconsin. Michillimackinac was probably in present-day Sangamon County. The exact location of Harrison is not certain. St. Clair County took up most of the Illinois Territory in 1810.

Contents: Bk. B. 1800-1813 -- bk. C. 1813-1820.

Both books B and C include historical documents and transcriptions. Book B includes a historical chronology of events, 1671-1818.

Includes general indexes with each book. (The "A" and part of the "B" section [1 p.] for Book C has been placed after p. 135.)

About this record

This screen shows the complete catalog entry of the title you selected.

The Film/Digital Notes contain a description of the microfilm or microfiche numbers. Some family history centers and libraries maintain collections of previously loaned microfilms or microfiche. A camera icon indicates items that are digitally available online.

Generally, catalog entries are written in the same language as the original record they describe.

Reasons why microfilms may not yet be available digitally on include:

  • The microfilm may be scheduled for future scanning.
  • The microfilm may have been scanned, but have a contractual, data privacy, or other restriction preventing access. FamilySearch makes every effort to enable access dependent on decisions of record custodians and applicable laws.


Please report any problems with this record. If there is a note indicating that it is a preliminary description, corrections may not be made until later.

Thank you!

We will use this information to improve our records.
