Map of Rochelle, 1876.

Note the voting districts, as well as the additional streets added to east, west, southwest, and southeast parts of Rochelle as compared to this 1872 map. Note also that cemetery (southwest corner of Bartholomew and Clark streets) was marked on this map and labeled with a cross, though the cemetery closed to new burials in 1874. (Link forthcoming).
