Research in Lowndes Co., GA can be challenging because the courthouse burned in 1858 and 1869. Many records that we would ordinarily look at, are missing.
The 1830 tax record includes people who owned property, (sometimes their agents, trustees, or their guardians). Occasionally it mentions that an individual is a widow, or a minor.
The tax list also includes men who did not own property, and only paid the Poll tax.
One benefit of the tax list compared to the 1830 Federal Census, is that all adult men are listed.
Column headings on the record include: Name and Militia district name; Poll; Slaves; Pine Land; Oak to Hickory; Quality; Inland Swamp; Quality; County; District; Number; To Who Granted; Waters; (two columns that have two of the following headings) Value of Town Lots or 2 Wheel Carriages or Stallions, or Stock in Trade; Each Person’s Tax (dollars, cents, mil); Total.
This tax list was completed by August 30, 1830, when the amount was totaled up, on the last page.
