1935 plat map - Alto Township, Lee County, Illinois

Here is the 1935 Alto township, Lee county, Illinois plat map.

The property of Ole Jordal, grandson of Sigri Gunnersdatter and Ole Larson can be seen in the lower right portion of quadrant 13.     Despite the Great Depression of 1929, Ole Jordal was able to hold onto his property, unlike many others that were taken over by mortgage companies, banks and life insurance companies.

Ole was the son of Isabelle (Halvorson) and Lars Jordal.
