Village Deed Record: Sally & A. Agee, Ringgold County, IA, 1922

Ari and Sally Agee were my great-great grandparents. They lived in the small town of Delphos, Iowa. I emphasize the “small”.

Here is a Google map of the entire town:

I find it interesting that Sally is the first one listed on the deed, instead of her husband.

I wonder why they decided to sell their land in town.  Ari was a blacksmith and would have been about 68 in 1922. Perhaps he sold the land, because he retired and was passing his shop onto another person.  Just a guess.  In the 1925 and 1930 census, Ari and Sally were still living in Delphos, so it doesn’t look like they moved far.
