I am looking for a local Nauvoo historian. My gggrandfather lived in Nauvoo during the early Mormon era (Ephraim Cheney). They lived on 640 acres( 1 block) that was near the river behind the Nauvoo house. It was catty corner to lot 26 which was 40 acres owned by Aaron Cheney. If you have any old lot or street maps of the area I would be very interested in getting a copy. If someone knows the area that I have described I would like to get a picture for a serious family book. I cannot travel and really would like pictures of this area. I would pay any cost incurred.Please help :)
