When Samuel Beebe homesteaded in 1836 his was one of two "white families" between Momence and Chicago.
Chief Yellowhead's village was less than a mile away in the woods up a gentle slope on the other side of a stream.
In his memoirs Mr. Beebe spoke of wolves and a herd of more than 300 deer in the meadows between his homestead
and Chief Yellowhead's village. Leonard Perry Bradley, my Grandfather, married Mr. Beebe's daughter Bertha and inherited the farm.
Leonard died a few weeks after I was born. I was named Leonard in his honor.
