Nicholas County, Kentucky, Property Tax Lists, 1800-1811 with indexes to Deed Books A&B (2), and C - Carrie Eldridge.
Tax lists are an excellent resource often overlooked by researchers. Tax lists provide researchers with the names of persons present in the county at the time the tax was assessed along with a comparison of name spelling.
The first section of this valuable research aid covers four tax years (1800, 1801, 1809, and 1811) and includes: the location of properties, the name of the person who first claimed or provided surety, which type of land was taxed, and property value. Entries include year, person, location and water course, and entered/surveyed, as well as number of voters, white males, slaves and horses. The second section compares tax records for eleven years that fall within two census periods. The third section shows an expanded census for 1810, and the fourth section offers the deed book indices of the period for name comparison. An index to tax payers and a map of Nicholas County add to the value of this work.
