Northampton County, Virginia Personal Property Tax Lists 1863-1870


This is the fifth in a series of personal property tax records. This volume covers the years 1863–1866 and 1868–1870; as well as totals for all years and the home or employer of black males in 1868 and 1869. It is interesting to note in 1865 that nearly one hundred percent of those listed paid the same amount of tax which was forty cents. The introduction includes a breakdown of the various templates during 1863 to 1870, which corresponds to the original documents.
