Virginia Tax Payers 1782-1787, Other Than Those Published by the United States Census Bureau. Softcover, (1940), repr. 2006, Alphabetical Listing, 146 pp.
The First Census of the United States in 1790 comprised an enumeration of the inhabitants of the present states of Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, and Virginia. Unfortunately, during the War of 1812, when the British burned the Capitol at Washington, the returns for several states were destroyed, including those for Virginia. However, the United States Government, with the cooperation of the Virginia State Library, published the "Heads of Families at the First Census of the United States Taken in the Year 1790; Records of the State Enumerations 1782 to 1785: Virginia," in an attempt to partially reconstruct Virginia's 1790 Census.
This book is a critical supplement to the United States Census of 1790. It consists of an alphabetical listing of approximately 34,000 taxpayers in Virginia that were not included in the 1790 Census, and whose names were compiled from personal property tax lists from 35 individual Virginia counties.
