Chenango County
We, the under signed, do severally depose, and say, and swear that we have set down in the foregoing assessment roll, all the real estate situate in the Village of Smyrna, New York, according to our best information; and that with the exception of those cases in which the value of the said real estate has been changed by reason of proof produced before us, we have estimated the value of the said real estate at the sums which the majority of the assessors have decided to be the full value thereof; and also that the said assessment roll contains a true statement of the aggregate amount of the taxable personal estate, and of each and every person named in such, over and above the amount of debts due from such persons respectively, and excluding such stock as are otherwise taxable and such other property as is exempt by law from taxation at the full value thereof, according to our best judgment and belief.

Subscribed and sworn to before me this 21st day of May 1894 - W. E. Stover, Justice of the Peace - signed by A Pier, E R Bassett, J M Billings
