TAX LISTS 1777 – 1779 - Newcastle Co, DE

Microfilm #6531 (partially indexed), researched at FHL in Salt Lake City,
June 2008, by Donna Snider

• Could only find records from 1777, 1778, and a small number of 1779, on this microfilm
• Some of the records were indexed by last name, some by first name, and some not indexed at all. Each Hundred was indexed separately for each year. At the end of each Hundred, there were many un-indexed names.
• This was an original record, handwritten, very disorganized. Some pages hard to read.
• There are some unusual spellings or misspellings (such as Read Lion instead of Red Lion).
• Meaning of number following name not given in record
