About Knox County. The first “Knox County” in Illinois is unrelated to the modern incarnation. In 1790, the land that was to become Illinois was divided into two counties: St. Clair and Knox. The latter included land in what was to become Indiana. When Knox County, Indiana, was formed from this portion of the county in 1809, the Illinois portions were subdivided into counties that were given other names.

 

The modern Knox County, Illinois, was organized in 1825, from Fulton County, itself a portion of the original St. Clair County. Its county seat is Galesburg, Illinois.

 

Knox County is named for Henry Knox, a soldier of the Revolution who commanded the storming party at Stony Point, later a Major General. He was the first U.S. Secretary of War. Learn More
