You might try Illinois Vital Records in Springfield. Birth records are available back to 1877. None prior to that year.
I'm a bit surprised that Menard records only go back to 1916? They have marriage records that go back much farther. Did you try the court house in Petersburg?
If this was a home birth, it's always possible a delayed certificate was obtained at a later date; typically when "proof" was needed for social security, marriage, etc.
Hope this helps.
