Records in the Register of Deeds office on farm land sales were listed to secure the following report. When consideration was not given in the deed Internal Revenue stamps were used to secure an estimate of the consideration. Information on assessed valuations and amount of taxes were secured from the assessors' records and the auditors' books. Only those tracts were used for which consideration, assessment values and amount of taxes levied for both 1955 and 1956 were available on the tract sold. Where only part of a tract assessed was sold, the sale was omitted in this tabulation.
