    Seeking records about Cragg Cabin & owners

    Lisa Burgess Wayfarer

      I am a direct descendant of the Cragg Cabin and John and Agnes Cragg - It was located in Mazon or Maine Township in Illinois back then and was known as "The Palace" - it was a stopping point, ie. tavern for weary travelers and the first 2-story cabin in Grundy County - it was also said to be part of the Underground Railroad.   I am looking for any and all records, documentation and stories of any persons that actually stopped and stayed there while John and Agnes Cragg or any of their family lived there over those years -  I would greatly appreciate all help in this -  thank you -
