  • Sheldon H. Beal
  • John Phillips
Click on an image to enlarge it.  The difference in color has to do with using two devices for imaging.  The document is a light blue in color.

Joseph B. Grover included himself on the list of the assessed.  In addition, there was a portion of roadway bordered by land held by an unknown owner.

  • Jonathan Dill
  • Josiah Dill, son of Jonathan Dill

  • Andrew J. Kennedy - presumably Andrew Jackson Kennedy
