This collection contains notes and transcripts concerning Illinois Territory. Included in the collection are notes concerning the 1818 census schedule, a record of cattle marks, lists of territorial office holders, a tally of votes in the election of the Edwards County delegates to the 1818 Convention, a record of Randolph County marriage licenses (1809-22), an excerpt from the Edwards County Commissioners Record Book (1818), and a signed petition from the inhabitants of Gallatin County to have Hugh Robertson appointed Justice of the Peace (1818). The collection also contains a letter from Daniel Pope Cook (1817), two letters concerning Michael Jones, Registrar of the Land Office at Kaskaskia (1814, 1822), a petition concerning the seat of Illinois government (1818), a list of Edwards County land entries (1818), an announcement of the formation of the town of Waterloo, and notes concerning the establishment of post roads.
These materials were evidently gathered by Solon J. Buck for his Illinois in 1818 (Springfield, 1917).
