The Daleiden/Schlick Homestead Revealed in the 1874 DuPage County Illinois Atlas.

This excerpt shows an 1874 map of the “M & C Daleidon” (Michael and Christopher) 80 acre property at the end of Mack Road in unincorporated Winfield Township in DuPage County Illinois. Note the West Branch of the DuPage River located just west of the property. Mack Road was a simple dirt road and did not go through to what is now Illinois Route 59 or as it was know in the 1870s the Turner Road. The Turner Road would take people north toward the town of what is now know as West Chicago, Illinois.

The Daleiden’s neighbors to the east are the Edward Packer Mack Family. The Macks were substantial landowners in Winfield Township and early immigrants to Illinois. I will do a short article about this family in a future blog. Mack Road is named after this family.
