Hensley Census Records - Montgomery Co., KY Tax Lists 1797-1830


[Hensley Home] - [Census Records] - Montgomery Co., KY


The Montgomery County tax lists include both Real property and Personal property, i.e. land and certain other things such every white male over age 21 (or over 16), referred to as polls, tithes, tithables, etc. The number of horses and slaves are also included on the lists. The columns vary somewhat from year to year. These aren’t full abstracts, only what I considered the most interesting columns. Check out the originals to see what I might have left out.


In the table below I'll include the tax list data using the original spellings. The last column will be comments or a link to the web page for that family or person. I abstracted these tax listings from original records which I viewed myself via FamilySearch.org.


Notes: Sorry for not having this in my usual neater table format. I’ll clean it up eventually, time permitting. Meanwhile enjoy the data the same way I transcribed it.
