|This index was prepared by examining each section in each township using a magnifying glass to decipher the name of each land owner. In many instances, the name was considerably reduced (or abbreviated) to fit within a very small space. The typestyle used by the original publisher looked like an "E" at first glance, but was an "F" on further examination. We apologize for any discrepancies and would appreciate your reporting errors and/or omissions to us at the above address. We made no assumptions and suggest that you don't either. Is "J. Abel" on page 65 the same person as "Joseph Abel" on pages 56-57? It's possible, but there is no way to be certain from the information available here. Also, many of these people owned more than one piece of land in a township, but we have listed their name only once for each page on which we found them. Therefore, be sure to look over the entire township for other property owned by the same person. For copies of the pages listed, contact the PCGS at P. O. Box 394, Council Bluffs, IA 51502-0394 or email us us.|
