Does anyone know the actual location of Robinsons original homestead? There are several theories, but even the FP district or the local so-called "historical society" wont tell, stating they dont want to encourage"vandalism". On that NETR Online Historic Imagery site from 1938 or so I was able to glimpse a few small farmhouses north of Lawrence,east of River. Just curious.

Here's a section of the 1850 Flower and Rees map of Cook County. It shows several houses on Robinson's Reserve, but I don't know which was his original dwelling.
