Early Homesteads and Families in the Wabash School District and Immediate Surrounding Area

(These homesteads correspond with the map found below the table)
(Note: The map is large to show text and details more clearly)

There have been quite a few people who have lived in the Wabash School District and surrounding area over the last 160 years. In Kingman many families only lived there for a short time, and on rented farms tenants typically lived there for two years, and on March 1st they would move to a new location. I wish I had a complete list as there would be many more families.
