I/C #567 William Tilden 50 shares 1861. "The railroad of the Peoria and Bureau Valley is a single-track, standard-gauge, steam railroad, located entirely in Illinois, and extending from Bureau to Peoria, 46.946 miles. The Peoria and Bureau Valley also owns 21.571 miles of other tracks, making 68.517 miles of all tracks. Incorporated in Illinois under special act of the General Assembly approved February 12, 1853, granting it a perpetual charter and authority to "construct a railway from the City of Peoria, Ill., to a point in Illinois below Indiantown in the valley of Bureau River." The charter was amended on February 27, 1854, to allow the terminus in the Bureau River Valley to be fixed at any place most advantageous. The line of the Peoria and Bureau Valley was constructed under contract dated May 27, 1853, by Sheffield, Farman and Company, and opened for operation on February 1, 1855, on which date it was turned over to the Chicago and Rock Island Rail Road Company, predecessor of the carrier, for operation. It has since been operated by the carrier or predecessors of the carrier, being leased to the carrier in perpetuity under an agreement entered into with the Chicago and Rock Island Rail Road Company on April 14, 1854." from wikipedia.
