Illinois Harvest -- still more digitized local histories, post 2

History of Woodford County, by Roy L. Moore (Eureka: Woodford County Republican, 1910).

The Woodford County History, by the Book Committee (1968). Each individual township gets its own history here. I'm no expert on this county, but the preface speaks of updating the 1878 history, not the 1910 one. What's up with that?

The Pekin Centenary 1849-1949: A Souvenir Book..., by Thomas H. Harris.

Sesquicentennial History Book, 1824-1874 [my reading of the title is Pekin Sesquicentennial, A History, 1824-1974] (Pekin: Pekin Chamber of Commerce, 1974). Clearly there is some disagreement as to the point of origin of this Tazewell County town.

The History of Peoria, Illinois, by Charles Ballance (Peoria: N.C. Nason, 1870).

History of Quincy and Its Men of Mark, by Pat H. Redmond (Quincy: Heirs & Russell, 1869).
