MORTGAGES IN INDIANA. 

DEPAETMENT OF THE INTEKIOK, 

Census Office, 
WASHiNf^TON, D. C, March 29, 1893. 
SiK : 

The real estate mortgage movement in Indiana, one of the oldest states of the west, from 1880 to 1889 was 
on the whole a progressive one, beginning with a debt of 821,556,188 in 1880 and ending with $.37,494,415 in 1889. 
This increase of 73.94 per cent in the incurred debt dnring the 10 years was greater than the increase of 
population, which was 10.82 per cent ; but how it compares with the increase of the value of all of the real estate of 
the state can not be known, because that value was not estimated in the census of 1880. Excluding the terminal 
years of the period the incurred debt shoAved little tendency to increase in the meantime. 

Upon separation of the debt into that which incumbered acre tracts and that which incumbered lots it will be 
noticed that the increase is more largely found in the debt on lots than that on acres. The amount of incurred debt 
incumbering lots in 1880 was $6,450,298, and there was an inci-ease to $15,027,041 in 1889. In 1880 14,993 lots 
were mortgaged ; in 1889, 32,882. The debt incurred on acre tracts rose from $15,105,890 in 1880 to $22,467,374 in 
1889 ; but within this period there was a declining tendency from 1881 to 1889, so that the increase of the 10 years 
is due to the increase from 1880 to 1881 and from 1888 to 1889. The number of acres mortgaged in 1880 was 
1,137,615 and rose to 1,699,523 in 1889. 

During the 10 year period a debt of $284,104,944 was incurred, represented by 358,927 mortgages ; 64.23 per 
cent of the debt was on acre tracts and 35.77 per cent on lots. 

The real estate mortgage debt existing January 1, 1890, is $110,730,643, of which $74,553,217, or 67.33 per 
cent, is on acres and $36,177,426, or 32.67 per cent, is on lots. 2 of the 92 counties of the state have an existing 
debt of moi-e than $3,000,000 each : Allen county, with $3,143,276, and Marion county, containing Indianapolis, 
with 612,924,962. 

Indiana has a per capita mortgage indebtedness of $51, and in this respect stands lower than any other 
northern state that has been tabulated except Maine and ISTew Hampshire, as appears in the following comparative 
statement :

on lots, 6.71 per cent. From 1880 to 1889 the rate on the incurred debt declined from 7.13 to 6.67 per cent for all 
mortgages; for mortgages on acres, from 7.11 to 6.67 per cent; for mortgages on lots, from 7.18 to 6.66 per cent.

MORTGAGES IN INDIANA. 

BY GKOKGE K. HOLMES AND JOHN S. LOKD. 

THE EEAL ESTATE MORTGAGES OF 10 YEARS. 

Indiaua exhibits a mortgage movement whose progressive tendency is chiefly found in the increase from 1880 
to 1881 and from 1888 to 1889. Table 1 shows that during the decade ending December 31, 1889, the real estate 
mortgages made in this state, and mentioning the amount of debt secured, numbered 358,927 and represented an 
incurred debt of $284,104,944. The amount of this debt incurred in 1880 was $21,556,188, and with some fluctuations 
there was an increase to $37,494,415, incurred in 1889. The 1,822 mortgages made in this state in the course of 10 
years, not stating the amount of debt secured by them, are not included in any totals but their own, except in the 
number of acres and lots shown in Table 1, and except when otherwise mentioned. 

The yearly fluctuations in the number of mortgages made correspond closely to the fluctuations in the amount 
of debt. In 1880 27,020 mortgages stating amount of debt were made and 49,181 in 1889. The number of 
mortgages made in 1889 gained 82.02 per cent upon those made in 1880, the amount of debt incurred 73.94 per cent. 
During the 10 j'ears preceding June 1, 1890, the population of the state increased 10.82 per cent. 

In each of 9 of the 92 counties of the state a mortgage debt of more than $5,000,000 was incurred during the 
10 years: in Allen county, $8,394,378; in Elkhart county, $7,924,418; in Laporte county, $5,572,433; in Marion 
county, $31,587,763; in St. Joseph county, $6,037,497; in Tippecanoe county, $5,870,120; in Vanderburg county, 
$7,209,879; in Vigo county, $7,042,126; in Wayne county, $6,781,316. 

Mortgages on acees. — A debt of $182,488,465 was placed on acre tracts during the 10 years, or 64.23 per 
cent of the total for acre tracts and lots, and this amount was represented by 204,531 mortgages, or 56.98 per cent 
of the total number. In the annual amount of mortgages on acres there were fluctuations, but on the whole the 
incurred acre debt increased from $15,105,890 in 1880 to $22,467,374 in 1889. The acre mortgages numbered 17,330 
in 1880 and increased to 26,580 in 1889. 

Mortgages on lots. — Of the total amount of real estate mortgage debt incurred during the 10 years, 
$101,616,479, or 35.77 per cent, incumbered lots. The amount incurred in 1880 was $6,450,298; in 1889 it was 
$15,027,041, but the movement was nearly stationary from 1881 to 1886. The gain in number of mortgages in 1889 
over those of 1880 was 133.24 per cent; in amount of incurred debt, 132.97 per cent. 

Number of acres and lots covered. — During the 10 years 13,343,123 acres were incumbered by 205,532 
mortgages stating and not stating amount of debt. In 1880 the number of acres incumbered was 1,137,615; in 
1889 the number was 1,699,523. Increase of 1889 over 1880, 49.39 per cent. Lots to the number of 225,913 were 
incumbered during the decade by 155,217 mortgages stating and not stating amount of debt; 14,993 in 1880, 
32,882 in 1889. Increase of 1889 over 1880, 119.32 per cent. 

Averages. — The average amount of each mortgage on acres made in the state during the decade was $892 ; on 
lots, $658. Each mortgage on acres covered 65 acres on the avei'age; each mortgage on lots covered 1.46 lots. A 
debt of $13.74 was placed on each mortgaged acre on the average; of $452 on each mortgaged lot. Mortgages not 
stating amount of debt are included in these averages per acre and per lot. 

EXISTING INDEBTEDNESS. 

Table 2 shows that the existing mortgage debt of Indiana is $110,730,643, of which $74,553,217, or 67.33 per 
cent, is on acres and $36,177,420, or 32.67 per cent, is on lots. Of the 171,420 mortgages in force, 106,155, or 61.93 
per cent, are on acres and 65,265, or 38.07 per cent, are on lots. Mortgages in force cover 6,822,499 acres and 
94,239 lots. Mortgages have an average life of 4.395 years; on acres, 4.952 years; on lots, 3.323 years. The 
partial payments adopted for this state are 18.77 per cent of the face of the existing mortgages on acres; 15.70 per 
cent on lots; total, 17.79 per cent. 

An existing mortgage debt of more than $3,000,000 is found in 2 counties, namely, Allen county, whose debt 
is $3,143,276, and Marion county, containing Indianapolis, whose debt is $12,924,962. In each of the counties of 
40—2 3

EATES OF INTEREST AND CLASSIFICATION OF AMOUNTS. 

It is shown in Table 3 that 6 per cent was the principal rate of interest in this state during the 10 year period. 
The amoiint of debt incurred at this rate was 44.90 per cent of the total; under 6 per cent, 1.35 per cent of the 
total; over 6 per cent, 53.75 per cent of the total; over 8 per cent, 0.18 of 1 per cent of the total. The rate of 
interest was limited by law to 10 per cent in 1867, but the limit was lowered to 8 per cent in 1879, and this 
continued during the 10 year period covered by this investigation. The debt of nearly $300,000,000 incurred in 
this state during the 10 j'ear period bore 43 different rates of interest, and besides this 1440,061 was not subject to 
any interest. The highest rate discovered was 40 per cent. 

The number of mortgages are classified according to their amounts in Table 4. During the 10 years 51.31 per 
cent of the number of mortgages were made for amovmts less than $500, 24.43 per cent for amounts of $500 and 
under $1,000, 22.87 per cent for amounts of $1,000 and under $5,000, and 1.39 per cent for amounts of $5,000 and 
over. 

SPECIAL INVESTIGATIONS. 

In Crawford, Hendricks, and Lagrange counties special investigations were conducted, the character of which 
has been explained at length in Extra Census Bulletin No. 3, for Alabama and Iowa. 

Objects of indebtedness. — It is found that 54.89 per cent of the original amount of existing debt, that is, 
without deducting partial payments, was incurred in Crawford county to secure part of the purchase price of real 
estate, uncombined with other objects, 69.75 per cent in Hendricks county, and 81.77 per cent in Lagrange county. 

To secure purchase money and to make real estate improvements, when not associated with other objects, were 
the reasons why 67.42 per cent of the original amount of the existing debt was incurred in Crawford countj^, 81.32 
per cent in Hendricks county, and 91.49 j)er cent in Lagrange countJ^ The percentage for real estate purchase 
and improvements, business, and the purchase of various articles of personal property, when not associated with 
other objects, is 83.16 in Crawford county, 95.89 in Hendricks county, and 94.66 in Lagrange count}^ The 
percentage for farm and family expenses, standing alone, is 7.34 in Crawford county, 2.51 in Hendricks county, and 
2.02 per cent in Lagrange county. 

Ceawfoed county.- — This county has an existing debt of $116,953 and 506 mortgages in force. The population 
being 13,941, the per capita indebtedness is $8, and there are 28 persons, on the average, to a mortgage in force. 
Mortgages cover 32,870 acres, and these are 16.96 per cent of the taxed acres; 96 lots are mortgaged, or 4.98 per 
cent of the taxed lots. The average incumbrance on each mortgaged acre is $2.93 ; on each mortgaged lot, $214. 
There are 74 acres, on the average, incumbered by each mortgage on acres, and 1.60 lots by each mortgage on lots. 

The people of this countj^, which is in southern Indiana on the Ohio river, are mostlj^ engaged in farming, 
although a large proportion of them are engaged in the lumber business. It has been quoted as having suffered 
some financial depression in recent years, but other reports are to the efiect that it has had a healthy growth and 
financial activitj^ 

Hendricks county. — The 1,024 mortgages in force represent an existing debt of $742,718, or $35, on the 
average, to each of the 21,498 persons in the county and 1 mortgage to 21 persons. The 41,383 acres covered by 
mortgage are 16.18 per cent of the taxed acres, and the 355 mortgaged lots are 13.29 per cent of the taxed lots. 



MORTGAGES IN INDIANA. 5 

Each mortgage ou acres incumbers 53 acres on tlie average, and each mortgage on lots incumbers 1.44 lots. The 
average debt to each incumbered acre is $16.03 ; to each incumbered lot, $224. 

This county is situated in the middle of the state. Agricultui-e is almost the sole occupation, and the people 
have prospered in proportion as crops have been good or bad. Ditch and gravel road assessments were somewhat 
burdensome during a few recent years, but the reports of those who are familiar with the county are to the effect 
that the people, on the whole, have been fairly prosperous. 

Lagrange county. — There is an existing debt of $1,319,012 in this county, and 1,525 mortgages are in force. 
The population is 15,615, so that the per capita debt is $84, and there are 10 persons, on the average, to a mortgage 
in force. Mortgages cover 85,465 acres, and these are 36.84 per cent of the taxed acres ; 351 lots are mortgaged, or 
18.62 per cent of the taxed lots. The average incumbrance on each mortgaged acre is $13.91 ; on each mortgaged 
lot, $371. There are 68 acres, on the average, incumbered by each mortgage on acres, and 1.32 lots by each mortgage 
on lots. 

The soil is rich and well adapted to agricultural pursuits, and these employ most of the people in this countj^, 
which is situated in the northern part of the state. The increase of wealth has not been rapid and no great 
expansion in business has occurred, but there is said to have been little of financial depression.
