New Philadelphia was founded by Frank McWorter, a free African American, in 1836. Shortly after purchasing his freedom from the estate of George McWhorter, Frank invested in acquiring land in a largely undeveloped area of Pike County, Illinois, situated in a region of hill country between the Mississippi and Illinois Rivers. He and his family moved to Pike County in 1830. Frank recorded his legal name as McWorter, platted and legally registered the town of New Philadelphia, and subdivided and sold blocks and lots of the land within the town. He and his family developed their own farmstead in the area to the north of this new town, raising crops and livestock, among other endeavors. New Philadelphia was the first town established by a free African American before the Civil War, and it likely served as a stopping place for the "Underground Railroad" of enslaved African Americans who were fleeing northward from the oppression of southern plantations.

The site of New Philadelphia was located in Hadley Township, not far from the Mississippi River valley to the west and the Illinois River valley to the east. It developed as an integrated town, located at a crossroads in this agricultural area through the 1860s, with an active roadway carrying agricultural products and other goods to the Mississippi River, 20 miles to the west. Planned construction of the first rail line through Pike County, to link Naples, Illinois with Hannibal, Missouri and the Mississippi River, helped further invigorate area land sales and development in the 1860s. However, when this railroad was built in 1869, it bypassed New Philadelphia and had station stops at Barry and the new town of Hadley Station. Occupation of New Philadelphia declined thereafter, the town was dissolved as a legal entity in 1885, and the site is now covered by farmlands.

The descendant communities of this integrated town include relatives of the numerous families who lived there. We have compiled census data from Federal and State census lists from 1850, 1855, 1860, 1865, 1870, and 1880, and provide a brief overview of the populations reflected in those census lists. Set out below are lists of some of the families who lived in New Philadelphia, the information provided about them in the 1850 and 1860 census lists, and links to the current web sites of genealogy and historical research forums for each surname. We have sent email letters to each genealogy and history forum listed below, describing this collaborative project concerning the town's social history, and providing pertinent census data for each family name. We have received a tremendous response from members of these descendant communities, who have contacted us, sending in accounts of family histories, genealogy research information, and copies of early photographs.

For additional historical, anthropological, and archaeological research concerning the social history of New Philadelphia and the lives of those persons who lived in and visited this integrated community, go to the Center for Heritage Resource Studies' New Philadelphia Project. A collaborative project of historians, archaeologists, and members of the descendant and local communities is underway to further research the social history of this integrated town and enhance its focus in our national memory and heritage.

1850 Census Data
and related Genealogy Forums

The 1850 census listed for each household the family surname and each individual's first name, age, gender (referred to as "sex" and listed as M for male or F for female), race (categorized under the census at this time as W for white, B for black, or M for mulatto), occupation, and place of birth (listed as "origin"). The male or female head of the household was listed first, followed by the younger household members. An estimated value of real estate holdings was occasionally listed as well. (Transcriptions of the instructions given to the census-takers, called enumerators, are available online). The summaries below use these abbreviations, and list an occupation for each individual only when such information was provided in the census record. The census-takers often left the occupation column blank for any individuals other than the head of household unless they were other adult members of the households, some of whom may have been boarders or hired laborers. The following households in the area of New Philadelphia were recorded as census numbers 405-418 in Hadley Township section T4XR5W. This census data was compiled by Charlotte King and proofed by Claire Martin.
