1805 Tax List, Hanover Township

The list of names below was obtained from a xerox copy of the original 1805 tax list, kept as part of the tax list collection (1803-40) at the Historical Research Center, Beaver Falls, Pa. In 1803 Hanover Twp. was considerably larger than it is at present, and this list includes present-day Greene Twp. and part of Raccoon Twp., as well as the towns of Georgetown, Hoookstown and Shippingsport. In the original list, the singlemen were listed separately, but were combined with the married men to ease searching.
