Welcome to the Macon County ILGenWeb pages...

My name is Gayle Pace Jones and I'm proud to be your Macon County host. I was born in Decatur and was raised in Warrensburg and later, Oreana. Though I now live in another state, my roots are in Illinois. If you have additions, suggestions or corrections, please send me an email.

The pages on this site represent the work and contributions of many, many people, including the previous Macon County Coordinators, to whom we owe a great debt of thanks for their time and dedication.

Practice Good Internet Etiquette - the many researchers who have submitted information and photos to this website take great pleasure in sharing with others. Please respect their years of hard work by never posting someone else's info on other websites without: 1) asking for permission first, and 2) always give proper credit.
