1783 Rockbridge Co VA Personal Property Tax List

Henry COONES 1 free white male over 21, no slaves, 6 horses, 7 cows

(US GenWeb Archives, Rockbridge Co, VA 1783 Personal Property Tax List, This listing covers the Southwest District of the County, the Northeast District is missing for the year 1783)

Notes: This record listed due to the following Henry Combs; however, according to COONS researcher Robert P. LEWIS, the above was probably a COONS, which probably indicates that the following Henry COMB did not arrive in Rockbridge until after 1782, and/or may himself have been a COON (rather than a Combs).
