1781 Turkeyfoot Township

Tax Assessment ~ Part 8


This image includes the bottom of the fourth page of the original 1781 tax assessment return for Turkeyfoot Township, within Bedford County, showing the names of Single Freemen "Conner" through "Winger".


Note: This image was scanned from a photocopy of the original 1781 tax assessment for Turkeyfoot 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 1781 Turkeyfoot Township, Bedford County tax assessment return, as shown in the image above. It is as accurate as possible. The 1781 tax assessment returns were not included in the published Pennsylvania Archives (1897 Edition, Third Series, Volume XXII ).
