    Ancestors in 1900

    I recently started the book Family, by Ian Frazier, and he starts out by talking about where his family was in 1900. I thought it might be interesting to share where our family (direct ancestors) were in 1900, and what they were doing.

    Based on my research, I had 28 ancestors living, all in the US, and possibly a couple more in Sweden (I need to do the research). The ones in the US were living in the following places:

    Pomeroy, Garfield, Washington (3): grain merchant
    Grand Coulee, Lincoln, Washington (2): farmer
    Miles, Lincoln, Washington (3): farmer
    Waverley, Pike, Ohio (1): shoemaker
    Grand River, Madison, Iowa (3): restaurant keeper
    Grand River, Madison, Iowa (1): farmer, retired
    Wood River, Dawson, Nebraska (3): farmer
    Bonaparte, Van Buren, Iowa (1): farmer
    Genoa, Nace, Nebraska (3): farmer
    Kewanee, Cherry, Nebraska (3): rancher
    Valentine, Cherry, Nebraska (2): retired farmer and rancher
    Kewanee, Cherry, Nebraska (3): rancher

    These are ancestors only, so don't suggest the size of the family. The 3s are usually an ancestor who was then a child and his parents, and the 1s are normally ancestors who were widows or widowers.

    Roscommon (2): Farmer's son

    Done in the same way as the previous post. I based it on the 1901 census. Some of the wives were just blank for occupation so I didn't put down anything but they would have been housewives/farmers/widows. In 1900, I had 31 direct living ancestors. In 1872 and 1875, one of my ancestors was recorded as a shoemaker but he was just recorded as a farmer in the 1901 so he must not have been a shoemaker anymore at that stage.

    I don't have the motivation to track them all down and list them, so I am kind of lumping them all together.

    My dad's side was mostly in the Magnolia, Mississippi, area around 1900.

    My mother's side was mostly in the Boot Heel of SE Missouri in Dunklin County and not far away from there in NE Arkansas.

    Whoa!



    I like mushrooms, but I would never trust myself to tell the good wild mushrooms from the bad.
