Farmers andRanchers
If your ancestors were in Custer County in 1886, you're likely to find the head of household in this list of farmers and ranchers. Taken from the "Nebraska State Gazetteer and Business Directory" for that year, the entries are valuable because they pinpoint locations--useful as a "finding aid" for land records--and are only four years shy of the missing 1890 census. 

In the event that a misprint in the original publication might be involved, the order was preserved in cases where the entries were not strictly alphabetical.
