History of Adair County Iowa and its People – vol 2

Back in 1915, Lucian Moody Kilburn, was engaged to write a history of Adair County Iowa by the Pioneer Publishing Company of Chicago Illinois, he then being at that time a resident of the county for 50 years. The manuscript was divided into two volumes. This volume, numbered 2, provides biographical sketches of 348 leading men and women of the County of Adair including many of its founding families. You can read or download the free eBook from this website.

Volume 1, featured on another post of this website, deals with the general history of Adair County that Gordon K. Miller prepared.

There is no complete index of this volume of work except for the list of 348 biographies and the corresponding page they can be found on. Any search of the volume should take into consideration that the capital M’s and W’s were consistently OCR’d incorrectly.
