Tax Records:

  • 1759 ROWAN COUNTY, NORTH CAROLINA TAX LIST, Link, This tax list was found between the walls of the old court house by Wm. D. Kizziah, Register of Deeds. When found, it was but scraps of paper, but was fitted together and transcribed by him. This list was made before Rowan Co, NC was divided into other counties and is the oldest tax list ever found in Rowan (to my knowledge). It contains no figures and is not typed here as copied. I have put the "a's" together, the "b's together, etc. When a slave or negro is listed with another's name, I left those names as they appeared on the typed list. Some names in the "b's" were torn off or could not be read. They are listed at the end of this page. There is a copy of this list, as transcribed by Mr. Kizziah, in the Rowan County Library, Salisbury, NC.
