Free Blacks on the Clarke County, Virginia Personal Property Tax Lists, 1836-1862


The author has abstracted the information for free African-Americans in Clarke County, Virginia and has arranged them into seven columns: Year; last name; first name; age; occupation [only given infrequently on the rolls]; property description and value; memo [oftentimes describing the exact location of the taxpayer or his former owners if freed in recent decades].

This volume is provided in three separate arrangements to facilitate genealogical research by African-American families; 1) chronologically by year; 2) sorted by last name of the individual; and 3) sorted by first name.

Similar volumes are available for Frederick County, Warren County, and the City of Winchester.
