Family Genealogy
Tuesday, April 27, 2010
 

I had three ggg-grandfathers living in Iowa in 1880. They were John S. Young, Samuel J. Meader, and Lester B. Archer. The picture shows you where they were living at. Along with the regular 1880 census they also filled out an agricultural census. I have picked out four items from that census to give you a comparison of their farms. They are (1) the number of acres they owned (2) how many horses they owned (3) the value of their farm machinery and impliments and (4) the estimated value of all farm production for the year 1879.

Johns S. Young: Item 1 - 140 acres - Item 2 - four horses - Item 3 - $100 - Item 4 - $850
Samuel J. Meader: Item 1 - 80 acres - Item 2 - four horses - Item 3 - $100 - Item 4 - $600
Lester B. Archer: Item 1 - 165 acres - Item 2 - two horses - Item 3 - $75 - Item 4 - $830
