Below is a listing of BILLINGS information that I've collected from a number of sources for Hamilton County, Illinois (see listing at bottom).  The information on this page is far from complete.  I have not included any of the large amount of marriage and other data on the children of Samuel and Patsy (BILLINGS) BIGGERSTAFF ... see here for more info.  If you have any Hamilton County BILLINGS data to add to the list or corrections, feel free to contact me (please include your sources ... see Creating Worthwhile Genealogies: Evidence, Sources and Citation).
