My ggg-grandfather, John S. Young, from 1850 to 1859 while living in Tipton County, Indiana was a farmer. In 1859 he and his family moved into the town of Tipton. He changed his occupation to brickmaker. When he moved to Iowa in 1861 until the early 1880's he was again a farmer. In the 1880's he and his family moved to Mitchellville, Iowa. Again he changed his occupation to a brickmaker. This makes me wonder where he learned his brickmaking at. Could it be that his father, Phineas Young, was a brickmaker. The picture shows his occupation from the 1900 census.
