New River Notes — Complete

January 21, 2014

List of Labor & Tax 1872 & 1873

A Supplement to the 1870 Census of Washington Co. VA, Saltiville District

Jack Hockett: 28 Sep 2001

It has long been known that the extreme NE section of Washington Co. VA was deficient for the 1870c. The present information is from a tax and work book which was presented to Mr. Troy Taylor through the courtesy of Ms. Shelia S. Hunt; it is excellent proof of the degree of the deficiency in the 1870c.

p. 1: No. 4

p. 2: Burk [illeg.] Back of Book. 218/190/128. 218 + 26 = 244. 190 + 26 = 216.

p. 3: To Whitley F. HENDERSON. Overseer Dist. No. 4. Back Tax $190.52. ditto [Back] Labor Days 109. Tax for 1873 - $120.32. Labor ditto ditto 218. [Total] 327 $240.64. Transfer if any belonging to other Districts and mark out any that is over a/c.

p. 4: Below I send you the Schedule for your guidance. Order No. 3. That ten hours will constitute a days labor on a road in this Township. Wagons and teams will be allowed 50c for each horse, 50c for a wagon and 80c for a hand by the day. Plows in proportion. By order of the Board. S. R. DAVENPORT, Clerk.
