Iroquois County was formed from Vermilion County in 1833. It borders the State of Indiana to its east, and a strange slice of Ford County to its west. Perhaps the politicians who sliced up Vermilion County were doing a bit of "jerry-mandering?" It would be worth your while to look at Michael Hebert's County Maps of Illinois, 1790 - Present. Just because something was in Iroquois County in 1833 does NOT mean it is in Iroquois County NOW. Ford, Will and Kankakee Counties were further carved out of Iroquois and unorganized Vermilion Counties after 1833.
