PERSONAL NOTES FROM READERS:

" My house is located across Illinois Route 1  from the site of the Clark Co. poor farm.  The house and barn were still there when our house was built in l955 but had not been used for several years.  It was in the process of being refurbished to be used as a farmhouse when we moved into our home. 
I should add that the house and barn were demolished to make way for the Clark Co. Highway Office and Garage some years ago."
