Full text of "The Northern Counties Gazetteer and Directory, for 1855-6: A Complete and Perfect Guide to ..."

This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public domain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vary country to country. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated querying. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Make non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-commercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from automated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use, remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe.

INTRODUCTORY. 

(It occurred to the Publisher of the "Chicago Directory," while compiling that wofk for last 
year, that a publication of a similar nature, devoted to the North- Western Counties of tfec 
^tate, would be of great utility to the business men, not only of this, but of other Cities in the 
Ea^t^ in the iabit of transacting business with the Merchants of the Great West. Under this 
impression, the necessary canvass for that purpose was begun in the month of May last,' and 
ndther labor nor expense has been spared to render the work as complete as possible. The 
result is now brought before the Public, and it is hoped the project may meet with an amount 
^f support from those for whose use it was principally undertaken — such as will justify the 
Publishers in carrying out their intention of publishing, next season — 

A QAZETTEER OP THE ENTIRE STATE. 

The Publishers cannot. conclude these brief remarks without noticing, in an especial 
maimer, ,tlie uniform kindness and assistance experienced by their representatiye in the 
Beveral localities during the canvass ; an attention it would be inviduous to individualize when 
H was so generally manifested, and which it is hoped will but prove the introduction to a more 
lasting acquaintance.

CHERRY VALLEY, (See Butler.) 
CHICAGO. 

The City of Chicago is situated at the mouth of the Chicago River, and near the head of 
Lake Michigan, in latitude 41® W^ N. and longitude 10® Zb^^ W. and is the largest city in the 
Northwestern States, excepting Cincinnati and St. Louis. In 1880 Chicago was a mere trading 
post ; and in 1840, it had only 4,470 inhabitants. In 1860, the census returns were 29,963, 
being an increase of 25,'493 within th^ decade, or at the rate of 570.31 per centum. But it is 
since the latter year that this young City has made such immense strides to commercial impor- 
tance, and the figures which have just been returned as the census for 1855, credit this city, of 
scarce a quarter of a century's growth, with a population of over 80,000. Shewing an increase 
in less than five years of over 50,000.

COTTAGE HILL, 

Pest-Office, Dupage County. This village is pleasantly situated on the line of the. Galena 
and Chicago Union Railroad, 16 miles W. from Chicago, and 162 miles N. E. from Springfield. 
The first settlement was made in 1843, by J. L. Hovey, from near Panesville, Ohio, who built 
a small house, which he kept as a hotel, it being favorably known by the farmers of the "Fox 
Afid Rock River Counties," who then teamed their own. produce to Chicago, as the *<Hill Cot- 
tage.'^ The "Hiir' proper, which lies half a mile from the Railroad, on the South side, is a 
fine prairie knoll, of so easy ascent as to scarcely deserve the name in an eastern conception 
of the term, but commands as fine a view of prairie cultivated farms, groves, cottages, and 
Railroad trains as can be seen "in a summer's day," This pla«e being but 16 J miles from the 
eentre of business in> Chicago, having good water, pure air, and Railroad trains hourly passing, 
all of which stop here, must soon become known to those who would find for themselves and 
families, at a convenient distance from the city, a retreat from the noise and dust of its hot 
and crowded streets.

ROCKFORD* 

The County JSeat of Winnebago County, is beautifully situated at the roek ford, or head of. 
the rapids on Rock River, whence it takes its name. The river divides the City into two di- 
^sions of very equal size, known as East and West j^ckford, connected by a substantial 
wooden bridge. 

The first permanent settlement by immigration to the County was made on the W>e8t side of 
Ihe river, by Germanicus White, in the Autumn of 1^35. The site of the present City of

Bookford, on both sides of the riTer, remained the property of the United States OoTemment 
until 1843, when it was purchased by the settlers, at $1.25 per acre. Since that time, but- 
more especially since the completion of the Galena & Chicago Union Railroad to this point, iib 
1858, the progress of the City has been rery rapid, and it now bids Mr to be the largest Citj^ 
in Northern Illinois, between Chicago and the Mississippi.' • 

The Galena & Chicago Union Railroad crosses the river, over a handsome stone bridge, abopit 
a quarter of a mile below the City. 

Besides extensive works for the manufacture of steam engines, reapers,, wagons, ploughSy 
and all kinds of agricultural implements, (the most extensive of which is the celebrated Reaper 
Manufactory of Messrs. Manny & Co., situated immediately below the Railroad bridge/ wMch 
gives employment to about 150 men, and turns out from three to five hundred machines annu- 
ally,) there is an extensive Starch Factory, lately commenced, and several grist tisid saw miDtf 
in successful operation. The City (incorporated jn 1852,) also contains eleven buildings for 
public worship, several excellent schools, and three good hotels. In the immediate vicinity of 
the City there are extensive quarries of excellent cream colored limestone, added to which. 
several brickyards and a good lumber market, afford all the materials for good substantial 
buildings. Owing to its pleasant and healthy location on one of the most beautiful rivers in 
the West, Rockford presents unusual attractions to tourists and pleasure seekers,, during the 
Summer months. Distant 170 miles N. by E. from Springfield, and 92 miles N. W. from 
Chicago. Population about 6,500. Usual fare from Chicago, $2.75.

These yaluable Machines are constantly being manufactured. A larse number are being 
inade for the coming harvest ; several (houtand have been constructed dunng the past seasons^ 
imd used with entire euceess, yet the demand has not been half supplied. 

FORTY FIRST-CLASS PREMIUMS have been awardfedtoMr. Manny for the superiority 
of his Machines over all others, in the frequent trials it has had with them, including every 
Mftcbine that has any claim to reputation. 

A WARRANTY is given to each purchaser that the Machine is i|ell built^ and of good mat- 
erials; and that it will Mow as well as can be done with the Scythe, and Reap as well as can 
h9 done with the Cradle* 

!^e Machine is drawn by two horses, and managed by one person for m^pi^ing, a^id two ]^er- 
fions for reaping; and is also warranted to cut from ten to fifteen acres per day. 

TWO KNIVES — one a sickle, the other a smooth edge — ^are furnished with each Machine, 
either of which zbfi^ be used as required. . < ■■ , .■ 

TtlE TWELVE PATENTS of John H. 'Manny for Reaping and Mowing Machines embrace 
the Combination of the reel for ga^ering the Grain to the Cut^g Appftratius and the forker's 
|K>MUon ; the Adjustability of the Machine ; the Guard Fingers, ihe maixnw of attaehing the> 
Oaard Fingers, *the Dividers, the l^rucks, the Adjusting Lever, the Frame Work, the Diagont^j 
Braces, the supporting of the outer end of the Cutter Bar, the Arrangement of the Small 
Wheel, the Arrangement of the Driving Wheel, or other Wheel and, Track Scraper ; th^ 
Qlitltering Wings, and ii^rker's position ; the Removable Platform, the Sickles a^d Smootli 
£^1^ Knives, &e Flexible Joint, and Coupling, &o. &c., — glvii^ to this MfM^hjae immense^ 
Bupeidority. 

OUR EXTENSIVE MANUFACTORY 

Is located on Book River, in the City of Soekford, 111. ; 

Audf having an unsurpassed water-power, and every facility necessary for the manufacture of 
Manny's Patent Adjustable Reaper and Mower, we are enabled to supply all ordiors for the 
sfline with promptness and with a perfect Machine. 
We shall endeavor to keep constantly on hand from 



to meet single and wholesale orders ; yet it is preferal^le that orders should be given in season^

^e find thftt Jf«fMy*« Paimt Lqcenob o» Diamond Sicklbs and Smooth Boob Khives ftre 
uneqaalled for cuttiDg all kinds of grass and grain, while his Patbmt Guard Fingers afford 
ample protection to the kniyee, prcTent clogging, and admit of either the sickle or smooth edge 
being used as may bt required, which cannot be said of any oilier Machine. His Patent 
O^iiQUB Platform, and tide gatktrmg tving affords (as now constructed) an arrangement for 
discharging the grain superior to all other modes heretofore in use. Manny's Patented Adjust- \ 
a6ie arrangement for eontrolling the height of the cutters, and allowing them to conform to the- 
surface of the ground, is considered by all who have used the Machine to be so exceedingly 
perfect and indisjpensable a feature, as to show a glaring defect in all other Machines without- 
it. The other features of this Machine we find elicit general admiration. 

Strenuous efforts ha? e been made with all the Tsrions kinds of Reapers and Mowon in user 
to compete with Manny's Machine, but they have universally failed. Recently the obsolsts 
Idea of self-raking machinery has been sought to be reviTed ; yet the modiem q>ecimen, Atkins* 
JPatent, on a thorough trial with Manny's Machine the past season, came far short of it» 
oUims; but inevitably failed in competitioB, and failed to win the Prizb at Stakb ot 

EIFTEESr HXJJfBHEB DOLLARS I!! 

proving beyond question the impracticability of self-raking ; while Manny's Machine will vrer" 
oontinue to excel all others in simplicity of construction — in facility of management, and by 
its perfect adaptation to uneven grounds — by its means of adjustability to various heiglsts of 
outting, with a single simple lever at the^driver's seat — by the use of either a sickle or smooth^ 
edged knifcj and composed of Patent lozenge-shaped blades^ which prevent*clogging — by the peculi- 
arity of the guard fingers, being of the most scientifip construction, and practical utility — by 
l^eir s^pe and sharp edges assisting the cutters materially — by the recesses in their sides^ 
facilitating the escape of all loose matter, so as to render clogging impossible — ^by their width , 
affording greater protection to the knives — by its lightness of draft for Two Horses — ^by having 
)io side draft — by the easy method of changing from Reaping to Mowing, and vice versa, only to 
insert or remove the loose oblique platform — ^by its portableness from field to field and place to 
place, upon its own whedj^not having to be loaded upon a wagon or other vehicle, as is the 
case with some other Aftchines — by its elfficiency and superiority in the execution of the work, 
over hand labor and other implements — ^and the rate of ten to fifteen acres per daj, easily mai»- 
aged by one person for mowing and two for reaping — and by its being the best, by its adapta- 
tion to cutting all kinds of grass and grain, in every condition, wet or dry, lodged or otherwise^ 
and to cutting flax or gather the seed, and also timothy and clover seed — and by its being 

9^ 0nts ^tc^fiA <|0mMimiion af il^a^^r ^ W^ow^r In ttt^ Wtn^, 

AS WELL AS BKINO 

THE BEST MACHINE FOR EITHER PURPOSE! 



The numerous awegrds^ and the great success of Manny* s Machine during eight or nine yeats 
past^ with several thousand of them in use, together with certificates and testiijionials recei^sd 
ttom reliable farmers throughout the country, are sufficient evidence that no farmer should be 
Witlfout one or more of these Machines — and we are determined by their low price and extensive 
BAanufacture to place them within the reach of all. 

We hereby tender our acknowledgements to the farmers throughout the country, for thehr 
^ good sense in purchadng Manny's Machine in variably after (if not before,) they have examin- 
ed it. 

Our Factory is constantly turning out from ten to twenty Machines per day, and with which 

. we supply the following States and Territories, and ship Machines to anyplace where ordered* 

on any railroad, canal, navigable stream, or lake, in Illinois, Wisconsin, Michigan, Northern

STEPHENSON COUNTY, 

Extending along the Northern boundary of the State, was first settled in 1836, by emigi'ants 
ftrom Pennsylvania, New Ybrk, and Ohio, and was organized in 1837. It was formed from Jo 
Daviess and Winnebago Counties, and is bounded North by Wisconsin, South by Carroll and Ogle 
Oounties, East ^j Winnebago, and West by Jo Daviess County. It is watered by the Pecatonica 
and its branches on the North, and the heads of Plum Creek and other small streams on the S, 
West. The surface of the Country in this County is mostly a rich and undulating prairie, with 
oeeasional oak openings. It is, however, in many parts well timbered, and is one of the best 
agricultural Counties in the State. The lead region extends into this County. The County 
Seat is located at Preeport, on the G. & C. U. Railroad. 

STERLING, 

The County town of Whitesides County, situated on the North bank of Rock River, ie re- 
markable f6r its immense water pow^r. This power unrivalled in the West, and rarely sur- 
passed in the Union, was obtained by the costly improvement of the rapid's of the river at this 
point ; it is estimated at 50,000 inches, and with the present head (capable of being greatly 
increased) of 7 feet, to be equal to 300 horse power, sufficient to drive from 500 to 600 run of 
stone. Among the advantages of the place are a very fertile surrounding country, proximity 
to the coal fields, and the passage through the town of the Dixon and lo'vra C. R. R. (O. & Cr 
Air Line R. R,.J by which the distance to Pulton, on the Mississippi, is 25 miles, fo the inter- 
section with the <* Illinois Central" at Dixon II miles. The population is increasing with great 
rapidity; in February 1855 it was 630, July first of the same year, 1741. Distant from Chi- 
eago 110 miles. Usual fare, $3,40.

SYCAMORE, 

Post Village, and County Seat of De Kalb County, is pleasantly situated on the left bank of 
the riv^r so called, and surrounded by a fine open prairie. Laying as it does at some distance 
from any Railroad, and dependent altogether for trade upon the farmors throughout the county 
alone, Sycamore does not present any of that brisk and business like appearance common to 
most Western towns and Tillages. There are sereral substantial stores, three church edifices, 
and two hotels. The Republican Sentinal, the weekly County paper, is also published here. 
Distant from Cortland, (on the Dixon & Iowa C. R. R.) 7 miles. Usual stage fare, 25 cents. 
Distant from Chicago 62 miles. Usual fare, $2. Population about 1,600.

WAUKEGAN,. 

The County seat of Lake County, is very pleasantly situated in the Township of t!)e samt 
naipe, upon a rising piece of ground overlooking Lake Michigan. 

It was laid out in the Spring of 1841, and was formerly called "Little Fort.*' For health 
and beauty of location this young City has very few rivals in the State, nnd since the comple- 
tion of the Lake Shore Railroad, connecting it with Chicago on the South, and Milwaukee on 
the North, it has rapidly increased in population and conlraercial importance. It has connec- 
tion also with the above and other ports on Lake Michigan, by means of steamboats and pro* 
pellers, for which its commodious harbor and piers aiford a safe and easy landing. Besides 
several substantial stone and brick blocks, it contains five church edifices and a large and con- 
venient public hall. The county paper is published here weekly. Distant from Chicago 40 
miles. Population about 8,000.

WINNEBAGO COUNTY, 

Situated in the Northern part of the State, is bounded on the North by Rock County, Wisf 
consin, South by Ogle, East by Boone, and West by Stephenson County. 

It was first nettled in 1835 by emigrants from the Eastern States, and organized in 1836/ 
The County extends on both sides of the Rock River, which traverses it nearly from North to 
South, and furnishes an immense water power, especially at thp rapids, where the city of 
Rockford stands. The other streams are the Pecatonica, on its Western border, and the 
KishWaukie watering its South-Eastern parts* both of which abound in good mill seats^ 

This is a very fine farming County, the produce raised finding a ready market by means of 
the Galena & Chirago Union Railroad which passes right through the entire length of th6 
County. The ^surface of the County is undulating, and the soil a deep rich mould. This in 
common with almost all Counties in the Northern part of the State, is rapidly filling, up with 
an indostrious and enterprising population. Capitol, Rockford, situated on Rock R|ver<
