I frequently have recourse to these early tax lists to locate ancestors who may not appear on census records. I have a problem with interpreting the entries on this 1836 Warren County, Tennessee list.
The first three columns are headed Acres/Land, Value, Tax and contain data such as 100, $200, $10. Seems pretty self-explanatory. But the problem comes with the next three columns: School/Land, Value, Tax with the numbers: 200, $500, $25 underneath.
Does this mean that the individual owned a total of 300 acres that were taxed at different rates? If you have access to ancestry.com US, you can check the record here.
Appreciate any help with correct interpretation.
