Daleiden / Schlick Family and Winfield Illinois History Lecture Winfield Library Tuesday May 17 2022

In the spirit of Norman Rockwell this photo is posted. Casper Schlick and his Grandson Fred Schlick on the Daleiden/Schlick Farm located on Mack Road in Winfield Township. The farm is now a part of the Blackwell Forest Preserve of the DuPage County Forest Preserve District. The farm was sold to the District in 1967 and became a part of the District in 1970 upon the passing of Casper in 1970. Casper lived and farmed on the property for sixty years (60).

I presented over 40 years of my own genealogy research on the Schlick and Daleiden Families of Winfield Illinois.

The lecture took place at the Winfield Public Library (0s291 Winfield Rd, Winfield, IL 60190) on Tuesday, May 17th at 7:30 p.m. The program was co-sponsored by the Winfield Historical Society.
