Somerset MA Valuation and Tax List
For the year 1889
Taken from the Somerset 1890 Annual Town Report

Although a Tax List is not a comprehensive listing of all the residents of the town, this is the only listing that I have been able to find to date for the 1890 time period. It is a listing of all taxpayers, the valuation of their property, and the tax due, and also includes a listing of non-resident property owners in the town. Of note, the poll tax was assessed on all voters of the town whether or not they owned property. This is not a complete transcription of the tax list, but includes only those individuals who appear to be of Irish surname descent.

Tax on each Poll, $2.00
Rate of Taxation, $15.00 for $1000
