    Notes 
    • 1866 TAX LIST Copyright 1993, 1999, Pat M. Mahan This book is actually entitled "Assessment of Taxes on Real Estate and Personal Property In the County of Lauderdale for the Year 1866," and measures 17 inches by 23 inches CLOSED. It is in very bad shape. The front cover is missing, and so are some of the pages. It is also possible that some of the precincts are missing. The pages are not numbered, so it was not possible to determine if this were the case. The first two pages are torn, but there are no names on them. There are 83 columns, stretching across two sheets. Personal property is divided into several categories, which included libraries over $300; vehicles not exclusively used for agricultural purposes; jewelry plate and silverware; pianos and other musical instruments. Each Beat or Precinct is in alpha order. The A through G names in the Florence Beat are missing. And any "H" names, prior to Mrs. H. G. Hardy are missing. The remaining Beats or precincts that are listed appear to be complete. The initials "F. M." following a name appear to stand for Free Man. The four columns presented here are:
      (1) - Lands, Number of acres
      (2) - Town Properties, Number of lots
      (3) - Total tax on Real Estate
      (4) - Number of Male Inhabitants between 18 and 50 years of age
      at $2.00 tax per number.
