An important source for potentially valuable historical information about farmers is  the Agriculture schedule. These records list the name of the farmer and include details on farm implements, livestock, and crops.

Manufacturers Schedules

Also potentially helpful is the Manufacturers schedule (on 21 Family History Library films beginning with 1578849). These schedules contain the names of owners and details about their business or firm. If an individual is listed in the population census with an occupation involving manufacturing, such as a blacksmith, shoe maker, barrel maker, etc., details about the business or firm may be given in this census.

Products of Industry in Pennsylvania

The Family History Library has  the Products of Industry schedule. It gives the name of the corporation, company, or individual producing products with an annual value up to $500; name of the business, manufacturer, or product; capital invested in real and personal estate in the business; raw material used; kind of motive power or machinery; average number of hands employed; wages; and annual product.

Social Statistics

The library also has the Social Statistics schedues, 1850-1870. These censuses give no names, only numbers; the 1880 census gives names of idiots, deaf-mutes, the blind, homeless children, prisoners, paupers, and indigents.
