I would consider the source... I can find no evidence of an Illinois County,
VA. I'm not saying there wasn't one, just that I would require proof of a
more substantial nature. You can find so much misinformation on the web.

The Illinois Indians were in the Mississippi Valley and the state's name did
come from them.

Found this on the internet. I thought Illinois was named after the Indians
that lived here? I guess I was wrong?
