"In this appendix one asterisk means that the name is both a locality and township or precinct, while two asterisks (**) indicate a township or precinct only. If the name is in bold face, the locality is on the county line, partly in the county given; and if in bold face with one asterisk (*) it is a locality and township or precinct on the county line. Should the county have an Indian name, you may determine its origin by consulting Virgil J. Vogel's Indian Place Names in Illinois, (Springfield, 1963)."
