1779 Dublin Township

Tax Assessment ~ Part 4


This image includes the fourth page of the original 1779 tax assessment return for Dublin Township, within Bedford County repeating the names of Single Freemen, albeit in a different order than the previous list ~ in this case "Utley" to "Kelsey".


Note: This image was scanned from a photocopy of the original 1779 tax assessment for Dublin, 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 1779 Dublin Township, Bedford County tax assessment return, as shown in the image above. It is as accurate as possible. Certain names are followed by a name in brackets { }. These are included in order to show how the names are spelled in the published Pennsylvania Archives (1897 Edition, Third Series, Volume XXII, Pages 188-192). Apparently, the compilers of the published Pennsylvania Archives decided that the names should be spelled the way they thought proper, rather than how the tax assessors and/or collectors actually spelled them.
