The Historical Marker Database lists 101 markers in Sangamon County. Most are part of the Looking for Lincoln and Lincoln Home marker series, but the database includes others as well. A check of a dozen marker descriptions indicates the database’s historical information is remarkably accurate.
The Historical Marker Database is compiled by volunteers. Bill Pfingsten of Bel Air, Md., Al Wolf of Veedersburg, Ind., and Larry Senalik of Pleasant Plains deserve credit for the vast majority of Sangamon County entries.

Incredible(and fun) list!
Nancy: Agreed. Thanks.
My dad took a picture of the original Pulliam marker back in 1958. Actually I think it’s still there. Or close to there.
Marie: It was still there in 2013, when I took a photo of it for the Robert Pulliam entry. See here: http://sangamoncountyhistory.org/wp/?p=1504
