With the exception of Portland Township & Prophetstown Twp., I am only posting the townships that fall in the areas encompassed by the Tampico Area Historical Society (due to space limitations on this site). Of course the book has all of the Whiteside townships. The book is available in our Family History Library/Research Center for your review. You can check for a copy in your local library, check eBay for a copy of the book, or contact Higginson Book Company to purchase a reprint - www.higginsonbooks.com
