YOGSOH PIKE-01:  SOUTHERN OHIO TAXPAYERS IN THE 1820S [FOR] SCIOTO, LAWRENCE AND PIKE COUNTIES.  [Note: Book is filed in Scioto County folder.] By Hereitage Research, compiled by Marilyn Adams, 1981, 59 8” by 11” pages, cardstock cover, wrapper-style, stapled.  This index to more than 4,000 taxpayers from these three counties is based on the following tax duplicates.  For Scioto County they used 1823: land-tax list and the 1826-28 both land and chattel lists.  For Lawrence County they used 1822 land-tax list

and the 1828 both land and chattel lists.  For Pike County they used the 1823 land-tax list and the 1826 both land and chattel list.  Your surname may appear more than once on a list because the author could not determine if because the name was the same may not mean the person is the same.  [The Scioto County duplicates present a special problem in that the original official sometimes wrote Smith A. John for John A. Smith, but he was not always consistent in that either. Determine surname, then please check both A. John and John A. as it was impossible to determine which order was correct.]   There are a lot of names in this book- 25 or more names per column, three columns on a page and 59 pages will give you a good shot at finding out if your ancestor owned any land or chattle (personal property like horses or cattle) anywhere in these three counties.   Sample entries in the book are given with an explanation as to their meaning.
