About the Book

The People’s Guide county directory contains separate directories for each township, starting with a brief historical sketch, followed by a listing of churches and secret societies, and then a directory of heads-of-household. It differs from most city directories mainly in the amount of information provided for individuals. Here are three sample entries from Rock Creek township:

– M. E. Church, Burnsville; pastor, J. P. Pell; Sabbath school superintendent, J. G. McCormack; average attendance, 50; value of property, $500.

– BROUGHER, A. T.; with Huffman & Brougher; Burnsville. Born in Ind. 1848; settled in B. C. 1868. Rep. Methodist.

– Burns, Daniel; farmer; 1/2 m w Burnsville. Born in Ky. 1832; settled in B. C. 1841. Dem. Christian.

People’s Guides can be found online for several other Indiana counties, all published in 1874.
