EARLY UPCOUNTRY TAX LISTS
These are copies of the original early tax lists for the below listed Upcountry districts and counties in South Carolina. They are from the early tax list series available from the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, on 2 microfilm rolls. Lists for other districts and counties in the Low Country and south along the Georgia border are available, but are not presented here.
Each list has a title page, and then most have some amount of front material. These may be declarations, certifications, summary pages, South Carolina Archives notes, or other such materials that relate to the list, but do not contain taxpayer rolls.
Also note that some lists contain retake pages – recopies of the same page, but at a different contrast or brightness. These are included to assist the user in reading the oftentimes dim, bled through, stained or faded text.
At some point I hope to provide an index of names – but in the meantime, here are the papers in their original form.
