My goodness that's a long list!  But a quick perusal will show that most of it is Residence type listings.  These are from two separate Minnesota State Census entries, the 1875 and the 1885.  Both years used May 1st as their residency date.  I like that Minnesota used a 10-year cycle like the US Federal Census, but chose to do it at the half-decade points.  This gives me a finer grained picture of where my Minnesota people lived, and a closer idea of when they moved. 

Have you checked your state censuses?
