Tax lists can refer to personal property tax lists, tithables, poll lists, land tax lists, and rent rolls. They usually divulge the names of heads of households and other males age 16 or over, as well as valuations of slaves, cattle, horses, and other types of personal property, land taxes, and notes of interest. They can be used not only to trace a family's migration and its taxable property, but also to prove parentage when there are no other records. (60pp. Clearfield Co., 2000 reprint.)
