Company " F," of this regiment, was recruited at Pekin in the fall and win-
ter of 1861, and reported to the regiment, at Peoria, with ninety-eight men,
and three commissioned officers. The regiment left for the field, 22d of Feb.,

the regiment was assigned by detachments to service l)etween that place and
Memphis. Nov. 19th Co. "F" reported to the regiment at Jack.son, Miss.; was
engaged at Lexington, Dec. 18th, 18C2, when 46 of their number, with the
colonel, fell into the hands of the enemy. The regiment remained in West

this they operated in the country between the Big Black and Pearl rivers,
and on the Yazoo, rendering that' country untenable for the Johnnies. The
regiment veteranized in December, 1864. They participated in Sherman's

As the prosperity and well being of every community depends
upon the wise interpretation, as well as upon the judicious framing
of its laws, it must follow that a record of the members of the Bar,
to whom these matters are generally relegated, must form no unim-
portant chapter in the county's history. Upon a few principles of
natural justice is erected the whole superstructure of municipal law
tending; to relieve the wants and meet the desires of all alike. But
where so many interests and counter interests are to be protected and
adjusted, to the judiciary is presented many interesting and complex
problems. But change is every-where imminent. The laws of
yesterday do not compass the wants and necessities of the people of
to-day. The old relations do not exist. New and satisfactory ones
must be established. The discoveries in the arts and sciences; the
invention of new contrivances for labor ; the enlargement of indus-
trial pursuits, and the increase and development of commerce, are
without precedence, and the science of the law must keep pace
with them all ; nay, it must even forecast events and must frame its
laws as will most adequately subserve the wants and provide for the
necessities of the new conditions. Hence the lawyer is a man of
the day. The exigencies he must meet are those of his own time.
His capital is his ability and individuality. He cannot bequeath
to his successors the characteristics that distinguished him, and at
his going the very evidences of his work disappear. And in com-
piling this short sketch one is astonished at the paucity of material
for a memoir of those who have been so intimately connected with
and who exerted such an influence upon the county^s welfare and
progress. The pecvdiarities and the personalities which form so
pleasing and interesting a part of the lives of the members of the
Bar, and which, indeed, constitute the charm of local history, are
altogether wanting. Unlike the fair plaintiff in Bardell vs. Pick-
wick, we have no pains-taking sergeant to relate " the facts and cir-


cumstances " of the case. The Court records give us the facts, but
the circumstances surrounding and giving an interest to the events
are wanting.

Tazewell, like all pioneer counties, suffered much in the stability
of her judiciary owing to the numerous contests concerning the loca-
tion of the county-seat and the consequent bitterness and local
prejudice attending the various removals. The county-seat was
first located at Mackinaw, March 22nd, 1827. Tazewell county,
at that time, for judicial purposes, formed a part of the Second
Circuit. The first term of the Circuit Court ever held in this
county was at Mackinaw, May 12th, 1828, and presided over
by the Hon. Samuel J. Lockwood. The first case docketed was
entitled Bryan and Morrison vs. Wm. Eads, action of debt. The
first indictment presented was against William Herbert for assault
and battery.

Samuel J. Lockwood. — The Hon. Samuel J. Lockwood was one
of the justices of the Supreme Court of Illinois and assigned to
circuit duty in the Second Circuit. He was a man of good ability
and discharged his duties very acceptably.

Stephen T. Logan. — The Hon. Stephen T. Logan was the next
presiding Judge for several years and afterwards was Judge in the
Sangamon Circuit. He now resides in Springfield, Illinois, having
