The above section is from The History of Clayton County and includes the names of many local men and boys from Clayton County Iowa. Some of these names are also in an account book kept by Daniel T Nelings from 1867 onward. The link to part one of the account book, in pdf form, is below.
Some names from the account book include:
- Edwin Shirman [sic]: President of the Clayton County Agricultural Society. (source)
- Norman Hamilton: secretary of the same. He later (1884) committed suicide by hanging. (source)
- Dan Brunson [sic]: possibly H. D. Bronson who ran for coroner in 1865. (source)
- James Jack: President of the Agricultural Society in the 1870s. (source)
Daniel T was a plasterer by trade, an occupation he continued in Huron South Dakota. His account book lists money paid to him for work done as well as his expenses. More this account book in later posts.
