||I actually have this book and was VERY happy to find it online. I have relatives who live far away and I sent them the link so they could view our 3 relatives who are in the book. There are a few portraits and even a few sketches of their homestead's. Since most (if not all) the 1890 census was destroyed - this is a good source. Especially since they name the parents and children of the each biographical sketch.
