Search/Browse Story Co. 1898 Directory

The above-titled publication was issued free by the Maxwell Tribune to subscribers who were paid up to January 1, 1899 with the objective of getting old subscribers to pay up and to attract new subscribers. (It is likely that the directory corresponds to late 1897 to early 1898. Farm leases ended in March and that is when most moves were made.) The original copy is located in the Iowa State University Library. The photocopy from which this transcription was made was generously provided by J. Shrader.

In the publication the directory entries are organized alphabetically by the first letter of the surname within township or town. The amount of information varies.

It is evident that mistakes were made by the publishers in some entries. The transcription may have added some errors. but since the original was printed the transcription was easy. However, some of the numbers were not well-defined in the transcription copy with the result that some of the acreage data may be incorrect.
