Biographical Information

Certain occupations were subjected to license fees as early as 1782, and often are found listed in personal property tax books. In addition, tax commissioners were required to file with the auditor returns that identified licensees as merchants, peddlers, tavern and ordinary keepers, owners of stallions and jackasses, physicians, lawyers, dauguerrian artists (photographers), and so forth. The occupations taxed vary and several years of returns are missing, as are some county returns for certain years.
