It wasn't worth much, but they owned it!

Just how primitive was the home where my great-great-grandparents, John and Ann Norton, lived in with their six children?

Comparing the relative values of the homes, multiplying by 2,000, it's as if theirs had been worth $20,000 (as would be a few others), with others on the same page worth $100,000, $200,000 and $500,000. (The cheapest on the "block" would be $12,000.)
