Macon County was formed from unorganized part of Illinois and the north end of Shelby County in 1829. It was named for Nathaniel Macon who lived and died in North Carolina. Unlike many counties, there is no prior county area that would have pre 1829 records. Macon County has marriage records dating to 1829, birth and death records to 1877, court and county board records to 1829, probate records to 1831 and deeds to 1827. Note that birth and death records were not mandated until 1916 and may be incomplete before that time.

My name is Cheryl Rothwell and I am the County Coordinator for Macon County ILGenWeb. Gayle Pace Jones and earlier County Coordinators have created an excellent resource for researchers. I have family and friends in Macon County but I am by no means an expert. To that end I am looking for assistance with Macon County. If you know Macon County and would like to help out please contact me.
