Travel Tuesday - Beginning the Journey to the Midwest

I have not been able to pinpoint when or why the Havens family left Monmouth, New Jersey for Tazewell County, Illinois. I do know that they had arrived by 1845, as Daniel Havens is listed in the 1845 Illinois Census in Tazewell County.

While I do not currently know the path that Daniel and Margaret took from New Jersey, it is likely that they following a path through Pennsylvania, Ohio, across Indiana to Illinois, like the map below:
Daniel Havens appears in the 1873 Land Ownership map in Deer Creek Township, Tazewell County.
I will have more in a subsequent post, featuring the Havens family in the US Census, and interestingly, Daniel's will from the Tazewell County Probate Files on FamilySearch.
