Scott County was established on February 16, 1839 from a portion of Morgan County. It's territory was first part of Illinois County, created by Virginia in 1783. In 1787 this sparsely settled county became part of the Territory Northwest of the Ohio River. In 1790 present day Scott became part of St. Clair County, one of the initial counties in Indiana Territory when it was created in 1800. In 1809, that county became part of the new Illinois Territory and Scott county's territory moved through several county organizations as the population of Illinois began to expand rapidly: first Madison in 1812; next Greene in 1821; and finally becoming part of Morgan in 1823. This very rural county retains much the look it had when your ancestors lived there.

Online since 1996, the mission of Scott County ILGenWeb is to provide free genealogical and historical resources for our area. Scott County ILGenWeb is brought to you 100% by volunteers. In order for Scott County ILGenWeb to continue to grow we rely on data contributions from researchers like you. All of the contributions you provide to this project will forever remain with the Scott County ILGenWeb and USGenWeb Project.
"Show me the manner in which a nation or community cares for its dead and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender mercies of its people, their respect for the laws of the land, and their loyalty to high ideals."
- William Gladstone (1809-1897)
