The 1856 census is the first Iowa state census to name every member of the household. It also states years resided in state (column 9). No line numbers appear on the original census and have been assigned to indicate the enumeration order. Odd numbered pages are extended farming statistics not transcribed. The enumerators usually left one or two blank lines between households
