[1] The number of horses, cattle, hogs and values have been left out for space reasons but the numbers varied from none to two or three in most cases. The children are shown as between 7 and 17 or between 5 and 16, I have assumed that it is inclusive.

 

[2] The William and James shown in these records cannot be identified positively, but based on the ages of the children shown for William and lack children shown for James I would suggest that they are possibly the brothers shown in the 1850 census of Greenup and the sons of Taylor Horsley. At the time of the 1850 census of Greenup James was living in the household of his brother William. The fact that they are shown as tithes over 21 years of age in Carter and yet recorded in Greenup in the 1850 census would seem to confirm their residence as right on the county line.

 

[3] These two names are taken from the 1839 Tax data shown on the Carter County GenWeb page.

 

[4] The word appears to start with an H and end with a G but it could possibly be a G and Y in which case it may be Grassy which was certainly in the right area. It might also be Harvey.
