To help those unfamiliar with DeKalb County I am providing this partial map of the county (southern end), showing the three townships thus far examined for family farms on the 1905 plat map archived by the state of Illinois. I expect to research the family connections more thoroughly in the near future. The effort will probably reveal farms I have missed in these three townships and additional properties in other townships as well. I have for example found relevant farms in Afton Township.  My eyes may be failing me in my search for the Weiherman farm in 1905.  I have yet to locate John’s property.
