HISTORY

Ogle County was formed in 1836 out of Jo Daviess and LaSalle Counties, and named in honor of Captain Joseph Ogle, a veteran of the Revolutionary War who came to Illinois in 1785. Ogle did not have an organized government until 1837, so for a year it remained attached to Jo Daviess County.[citation needed] The county was divided three years later in 1839, when Lee County was formed.
