Excerpt from History of Iroquois County: Together With Historic Notes on the Northwest, Gleaned From Early Authors, Old Maps and Manuscripts, Private and Official Correspondence, and Other Authentic, Though, for the Most Part, Out-of-the-Way Sources The county presents an admirable system of natural drainage by means Of its larger watercourses and their numerous tributaries. The principal streams are the Iroquois river, Sugar, Mud, Fountain Spring, Prairie, Langham, Pike and Beaver creeks. The chief feeders to these, which have recognized names, are Rush, Coon and Pigeon branches; Miller's, or the west branch Of Spring creek; Shave Tail, or Jefferson; and the Ashkum and Gilman ditches. These streams are generally sluggish and turbid. The Iroquois river, from Sugar Island (just over the county line) to its mouth, is shallow and rocky. Along this whole distance Silurian limestone abounds; but above the island the tide is deep and slack, and navigable for flat boats nearly to the state line. Fish are tolerably abundant in the river and larger creeks, but less so than a few years ago. Artificial Obstructions interfere with their running. The most common kinds found are pike, catfish, bass, suckers, dogfish, red-horse, some buffalo and a few eel. The River, Sugar, Mud, Spring, Langham and Beaver creeks are skirted by considerable timber belts. Some of the others have woodlands near their mouths, and a few spontaneous groves in the vicinity Of watercourses are seen. Planted ones are becoming numerous and meet the eye in every direction. The choicest part of the natural timber has been cut and sent to market. In some places the land has been entirely cleared to improve it for pasture, as well as to feed the saw-mills. The most common varieties of timber are red, white and burr oak, black walnut, butternut, iron wood, wild cherry, swamp beech, ash, sugar maple, soft maple, hickory, elm and honey locust. Crab apple and plum bushes abound in certain localities. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Past and Present of Iroquois County, Illinois From Hon. Horace Russell. Member of the forty-third general assembly, came the following: I have appreciated the honor he conferred on me by being friendly to me always, for back in the past when he was a younger man I became acquainted with him. He was, always kind to me and while he was aware of my many failings and shortcomings he always passed them bv and encouraged me to do better. He has left to you bovs a name that few can have. It was not local by any means, but was linked with all of eastern Illinois and especially of our county. There is no one man in our county who was so well and favorably known as was Mr. Goodell. His name meant all that was honorable and good. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Excerpt from Historical Papers and Addresses of the Lancaster County Historical Society, Vol. 17 As Lieutenant General of the new colony, Champlain had ample powers to carry on the work intended. He could make war and treaties with the natives as the circumstances seemed to make those steps necessary, and undertake explorations and discover ies. In short, his mission was to found a French colony and open up t'raflic With the Indians. He early came into contact with certain Indian tribes of Algonquin lineage who inhabited that part of New France, and especial. Ly with the Hurons who occupied the region of Lake Simcoe and the Geor gian Bay. Before leaving for France he held by special appointment a meeting with that tribe, which had long been warring with the Iroquois, or Five Natio-ns' Confederacy. In trav eling toward the appointed place of meeting, Champlain and his little party of twelve white men and sixty Indians was encountered by a band of Iroquois, when a fight ensued. A few musket shots by the white men sent the enemy about in wild dismay and the campaign for the time being was over. Champlain returned to the French settlements, but his allies had invited him to visit them at their more remote towns, and he agreed to do so.
