*Earliest residents of what became Wyoming in 1890 are in the 1850 censuses of [[Nebraska Census|Nebraska]], [[Utah Census|Utah]], and [[Washington Census|Washington]].<ref>William Thorndale, and William Dollarhide, ''Map Guide to the U.S. Federal Censuses, 1790-1920'' (Baltimore: Genealogical Publishing, 1987), 387. {{WorldCat|16509993|disp=At various libraries (WorldCat)}}; {{FHL|545087|item|disp=FHL Book 973 X2th}}. 1850 census shows residents in present-day Wyoming then in Nebraska Territory (Unattached), Utah Territory (Green River County), and Washington Territory (Unattached), and in the 1856 Utah census of Green River County.</ref>
*Many early Wyoming settlers obtained land by&nbsp;[[Homestead Records|homesteading]], or from [[Grants to Land Companies and Railroads#Railroads|railroads]].<ref>The Dept. of the Interior BLM-GLO [http://www.glorecords.blm.gov/search/default.aspx Land Patent Search] only shows homesteads that were completed. If you can identify the location of incomplete homestead applications you can still obtain the application papers. The [[Union Pacific Railroad]] was the most likely one to sell land to settlers.</ref>
