William & his family were the 1st white settlers
to locate at what is now Elgin,
according to an article of known origin.

Sept. 29, 1834 Phebe gave birth to Elbert.
He was 1st white Baby Born in Kane Co Illinois.

In October of 1834 the Indians stole baby Elbert & took him back to their camp. As soon as Phebe noticed the baby missing, she rushed over to the Indian Camp alone & found a squaw lovingly caring for her baby. The squaw didn't want to give the baby up but when Phebe promised to bake her some bread the squaw gave back the baby.

Wm & Phebe owned land that is now divided into
Trout Park Elgin IL.
