Long Island Farmers of 1889
             
     Farmers of Long Island in 1889
         
  The following names were found in the 1889 Brooklyn &  Long Island Business Directory (published by LI Publishing Co. 1889/90). The entitled section, "Long Island Farmers" , lists all those farmers in Kings (excluding the city of Bklyn), Queens (including present day Nassau) & Suffolk counties who chose to be in the directory. The only information given was the name of the farmer and the area that he lived in. However, given the absence of an 1890 census, this can be a very important tool for locating an ancestor's hometown on Long Island.
