|This image includes the top portion of the second page of the original 1773 tax assessment return for Barree Township, within Bedford County, showing the (Single) Freemen's names and also the names of the owners of uncultivated lands, i.e. Non-Residents.|
|Note: This image was scanned from a photocopy of the original 1773 tax assessment for Barree Township, within Bedford County. The originals of the tax assessment returns were stored, for many years, in Vault #1 in the basement of the Bedford County Court House. The webmaster of this site was given permission by the officials of the Bedford County Court system to photocopy the original returns in the 1980s. A year or two after the original returns were photocopied, a pipe burst in the vault in which the returns were stored, causing water damage to many records, and the original tax assessment returns were subsequently transferred to the Pioneer Historical Society of Bedford County for storage.|
The following is a transcription of the names of the (Single) Freemen which appear on the 1773 Barree Township, Bedford County tax assessment return, as shown in the image above. It is as accurate as possible. The published Pennsylvania Archives includes transcripts of tax assessments from Bedford County for the year 1773, but the township of Barree is not included.
