* NOTE: Later I will refer back to the Joshua, Sr/x and John, Jr/x listings with the "x" mark beside their names. This was simply the tax collector's method of keeping the payers straight in his mind. Joshua, known as Sr., was brother to the deceased John and guardian to young Joshua known as Jr., son of the deceased John. Here, the tax collector used an "x" and called the younger Joshua, "John, Jr/x. Confused? So was I.
Mr. F.C. Key Smith County Historian, explained that method to me.

1867
1866 was the first year that my great, great, grandfather Joshua, Jr. appeared in the tax rolls.
