County Tax Records 1849-1852


Transcribed by Lynn Risener
Some of this film was very light and very small print and corrections are most welcome.

Although I have only listed the names, the old tax records show much more than just a list of names, including the following:
No. of persons to pay tax
Land description of any land they might own in VB. County
(If they had a land description listed, I have placed an * after their name)
No. and value of slaves from ages 8-60
No. and value of sawmills they might own
No. and value of horses, mules and cattle they own

"A List of Persons and Property Assessed for Taxation in Van Buren County in the State of Arkansas for the Year AD 1852"

On each page of this book there was a lot of damage at the bottom. I copied what I could read even if it was just a letter. You may be able to figure out who some of the property owners were that aren't readable by their land descriptions on the "Land Records" page.
