Ogle County, Illinois



Without making a trip to Ogle County's library for a township plat map, I am unable to pinpoint where Rasmus and family had lived in 1900.

Listed above is a 2000 map of Ogle County, Illinois. Flagg township is bordered by Gurler Road on the south.

Lee County is directly south with Alto township (home of Ole Jr & Ole Sr) to the southeast and Reynolds Township (home of Rasmus) just west of Alto township.

There are several old maps online for Ogle county. I've found my relative's farm. The latter (not on Ogle maps I've seen yet, but others) even does an overlay with current maps.

Thanks for the link.

I think I had come across a similar site when I was looking for maps of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, but this one seems to be more comprehensive.

Thanks you.
