1837 "Early Settlers" of 8 miles north of Chicago on Lake Michigan....1837 to 1845....."the Ridge"....."Indian Boundary Trail"

According to John Muno, and recorded by Albert Joseph Fortman about 1980........
"Peter Muno came with Peter Phillips father in 1842. Took 5 days (more like 65) to cross the ocean. At that time (meaning 1840's?) Philip Rogers owned from Kedzie to Lake and south of Touhy to Pratt." (actual title search shows Peter Schmidt Sr bought 42.65 acres from John Smith and his Wife on May 9, 1842....an area from Morse to Pratt....Ridge to Western).
"Phillips owned 60 acres north of Touhy from Western to Ridge."
"Father (Muno) bought 40 acres south of Touhy from Western to Kedzie."

"Zender founded (Tavern probably) 1845"
"1st settlers on Indian Boundary Trail (oldest in Chicago)" This is Rogers Ave now.

"Peter Phillip - President Rogers Park Bank" this is probably the Phillips Bank of Rogers Park.

"His mother was a Petery" "(Luxemburg)"
