--Conni McDaniel Hall (IAGenWeb coordinator for Dallas and Henry Counties) provided a link to the Iowa "Non-Population Census" for 1880. I am in the process of transcribing it, so that the surnames and other content can be found with the Search function. In the meantime, you can find it here.

Ongoing - The county coordinator found a large number of orphan files on the site's server. Many of these are obituaries in JPG form, which are being transcribed and uploaded to the Obituaries pages. The list has been whittled down to 123 files.
