Earlier this week I wrote a post about the Leeper Land in Henry County, Iowa.
The farm had 80 acres of improved land and 200 acres of unimproved land.
The cash value of the farm was $2,000 and the value of his farm machinery and implements was $100.
Now for the animals. Absalom had 5 horses, 2 milch cows, 3 other cattle, 25 sheep and 70 swine. The value of the animals was $350.
I did notice that on the page Absalom was on that he had the most swine.
For produce, Absalom had a harvest of 150 bushels of wheat, 1,800 bushels of Indian corn and 100 bushels of oats.
He also cut 3 tons of hay.
The value of his home-made manufactures was $75 and the slaughtered animals $100.
Quite an interesting mix of animals and products from the farm.
I have seen farm schedules for some of my other ancestors so may have to compare some of them in a future post.
