Federal Agricultural Schedule of 1880

Federal Agricultural Schedule

The Federal Agricultural Schedule listed what many of our ancestors did to earn their livelihoods. My three times great grandfather Adam Moorer was listed on the 1880 Agricultural Schedule for Farmsville, Lowndes County, Alabama. From this document I see how many acres and the cash value of the farm, the crops as well as other items he produced, the number and value of livestock and the value of homemade manufactures.

  1. Amazing find! Most farm schedules I attempt to find have been destroyed.
