The Equitable Insurance Company Creditors (1872)

Some years ago, I acquired photocopies of pages 1, 2, 4, and 6 (last page) of a type-set list of creditors of The Equitable Insurance Company. The document was created in conjunction with bankruptcy proceedings handled by the District Court of the United States, Northern District of Illinois, and the original (probably one of many copies) is held by the Minnesota Historical Society with the James A. Smith Papers, 1828-1893. I suspect the same documents would also be available from the National Archives at Chicago, perhaps with additional information. I just sent an email to ask.

The first page of the creditors list reads:

"TO YOU, one of the Creditors of said The Equitable Insurance Company, Bankrupt:

THIS IS TO GIVE YOU NOTICE:

1st. That a Warrant in Bankruptcy has been issued against the estate of The Equitable Insurance Company, Bankrupt aforesaid.

2d. That the payment of any debts, and the delivery of any property belonging to said Bankrupt, to it or to its use, and the transfer of any property by it, are forbidden by law.

3d. That a meeting of the Creditors of the debtor, to prove their debts, and choose one or more Assignees of the estate, will be held at a Court of Bankruptcy, to be holden at Chicago, in said District, on the 29th day of March, A. D. 1872, at 11 o'clock A.M., at the office of H. N. Hibbard, Esq., one of the Registers in bankruptcy of said Court.

And the following are the names of the Creditors of said Bankrupt, and the amount of their debts as given to me by it:"

A non-alphabetical list of 800+ individuals and companies follows--"Names of Creditors Residing in Chicago." Next to each entry is an amount ranging ranging from a few dollars to five thousand dollars. There are five columns of names per page, arranged like this:

Smeal Rebanks & co      2000
Hermann Bauer                600
Colby & Wirts                1500
R L Gowen                     2500
Alice C Thomas             1000

I could be very wrong, but I believe this is probably a list of those who filed claims with the insurance company after the Great Chicago Fire of October 1871. Seen in that light, the list

1) connects the named individuals to Chicago in 1871
2) provides the names of some individuals and businesses who probably lost property in the fire
3) suggests the extent of the loss by those insured by this company (which may or may not be the full extent since some were insured by more than one company; James A. Smith, for example, also appears on a fifteen-page list of The Chicago Firemens Insurance Company creditors which is also available from the Minnesota Historical Society)
4) offers a glimpse into the time needed to recover from the disaster (the hearing was in March of 1872)
5) hints at the unexpected burdens created by the fire (preparing the document might have challenged typesetters' resources; names begin to appear with  lowercase and small uppercase letters near the end)
6) includes female names which may or may not appear in city directories

I have typed and alphabetized the entries on this document. The list has limitations:

1) it does not include pages 3 and 5
2) there may be misspellings either in the document or from my typing
3) I have not proofread the transcription carefully

But, that said, if you find match with names from your own research, the list may prove interesting or useful. If you would like the dollar amount next to an individual or company, email me the name and code (info at chicagogenealogy dot com) and I will reply with the information.

Chicago Lying-In Hospital Birth Records

When I look at birth certificates, I focus on names and dates and places--information I can add to a family tree. When I look at hospital records, I come face to face with the realities of giving birth. I think the records from the Chicago Lying-In Hospital and its satellite clinics provide fascinating and important family history details and I believe they merit a closer look. The hospital records are listed in the Family History Library Catalog (FHLC) as Chicago, Illinois birth records, 1896-1933 . The added author is Northwestern Memorial Hospital and I think the originals are most likely held by the Northwestern Memorial Hospital Archives . These hospital books document services provided by four clinics connected to Dr. Joseph Bolivar DeLee, the physician who founded the Chicago Lying-In Dispensary at Maxwell Street and Newberry Avenue in 1895. D r. DeLee was interested in improving birthing conditions and his clinics offered care to needy women while providing train

Chicago Telephone Books, 1878-1971

This morning my husband and I drove down to the Harold Washington Library at 400 S. State in Chicago so I could explore the resources available at the library for Chicago research—specifically telephone books and newspapers other than the Chicago Tribune . There was a public parking lot just around the corner from the library and the all-day weekend fee was $10.00. Not bad. (During the week parking would cost about $21 but it's easy and inexpensive to get to the library by public transportation, too.) This blog post will focus on telephone books. The first Chicago telephone book appears to be The Telephone Journal , vol. 1, no. 1, published in October 1878. (For a short history of the telephone in Chicago see FundingUniverse.com's page for Illinois Bell Telephone .) The first book includes information about the telephone service along with a three-page “List of Subscribers”--names of businesses and a few individuals along with an address and numbers for “wire” and “call.”

Preparing to Retrieve Locked Images from FamilySearch

Once you reach this page, save the URL so it will be easy to get back to the image when you visit the family history center. Sometimes people email me to ask how to find the Chicago vital records that are indexed on  FamilySearch . Here's a quick answer to that question. The first step is to see if the record is available for free on FamilySearch.  Here's how to do that: 1) Find the index entry and click on the arrow to open the "Document Information." 2. Note the digital folder number and the image number. 3. Go to the FamilySearch Catalog and select Film/Fiche Number under "Search For." 4. Search for the digital folder number. 5. Click on the title link for the record collection that contains the digital folder. 6. Find the digital folder number. Is there a camera-with-a-key icon next to it? Good news! You should be able to find the record on FamilySearch . Click on the camera icon and read on! Is the camera icon missing? Then please scroll to the bottom
