    I am a Wiese and I was just told by a Hartman some of the history of the early farms in Schaumburg. He was telling me about the Engelking farm also.

    Hello ! I was digging a new garden in my yard and came across a very rare unfluted dalton point. I was wondering if you had any more information on it and if you have any similar findings reported?

      Hello Mike,

      If I am correct, a dalton point is an arrowhead. According to a few of our oral historians who are members of the German farm families from Schaumburg Township, they periodically found arrowheads and points in their fields while farming. One of the historians mentions keeping a coffee can filled with them during his boyhood.

      If you’re interested in viewing other arrowheads that have been found in this area, stop by the Illinois Collection on the second floor of the Central Library. Hanging on the wall is a case of archaeological finds from Illinois and Schaumburg Township. You might want to compare yours to what we have on display!

    Is anyone willing to look up some history for genealogical interests?
    My ancestors were in the 1850 census in Schaumburg. I’m trying to find if my g-g-grandfather Robert Henry died there between 1850-1856. Most county records were destroyed in the Chicago fire. I was hoping the township would have kept death records as well.
    Thanks,

      Hello Doreen,

      Schaumburg Township does not have a genealogy society but we do have a genealogy program at the Schaumburg Township District Library at 7:30 on the second Tuesday of the month. Tony Kierna, our genealogy librarian, has been coordinating the group for years and does a great job. He also has a very active blog that he writes. You can view it here: https://genealogywithtony.wordpress.com

      I will also email you this information in case you don’t see this reply.
