Greene County Iowa
1900 Farm Directory Bios


In 1900 The Jefferson Bee newspaper published "A Directory of Greene County Farmers" containing the Name, Location and Other Statistics Regarding the Farmers of the County. Also Biographies of Two Hundred Well Known Farmer Citizens and Old Settlers." The directory sold for one dollar and comprises one of the best overviews of agriculture in Greene County for the time period.

An index of those whose biographies appeared can be found below. Highlighted names are linked to their respective biographies. Check back as we continue to post those biographies.

In addition, other rural residents were included in township lists in the 1900 directories. Those lists included the amount of land they farmed and the number of people in their family as well as other biographical notes. For links to those pages, click here.
