If you had family here, you might be interested in this book, Sugar Creek, Life on the Illinois Prairie by John Faragher, Yale University Press. There's not much to help with gen. research, but it gives an interesting picture of pioneer life there. This was written as a history textbook.  I found mentions of my Elijah West & his will, where he specifically makes sure one son-in-law won't get his hands on anything!
