Tax Lists – 1814 to 1818

The records below focus on entries involving the following persons. I have endeavored to find all entries involving them from the establishment of Caldwell Co. on 1 May 1809 until 1848. Because the records are not indexed, and are handwritten and difficult to read, some were no doubt missed.

Gideon Dyer Cobb Moved to Eddyville from Fair Haven, Vermont as part of the party organized by Matthew Lyon about 1800, with his wife Modena Chittenden Clark, and their eldest son, Caleb.
John Cobb The younger brother of Gideon Dyer Cobb
Samuel C. Clark Lived with Gideon, and is assumed to be a relative of Gideon's wife, but that is unproved.
Matthew Lyon Organizer of the move to Eddyville, second husband of Modena (Clark) Cobb's aunt, Beulah Chittenden.
Chittenden Lyon Eldest son of Matthew Lyon by his second wife, Beulah Chittenden.
Matthew Lyon, Jr. Second son of Matthew Lyon by his second wife, Beulah Chittenden.
Elijah G. Galusha Cousin to Modena (Clark) Cobb; son of her aunt Beulah Chittenden by her first marriage.
Hanson Catlett Married Matthew Lyon's daughter Minervia; may have been part of the party from Vermont.
John W. Throop A member of the party from Vermont, father of Lucy, wife of Elijah Galusha. His son, John Jr. also appears in some years.
Griffin Long Father of the second wife of Gideon and Modena Cobb's eldest son, Caleb.
Josiah Cobb Unrelated to the Cobbs of Vermont, left a widow Ann in 1817.
Jessie Cobb Unrelated to the Cobbs of Vermont, believed to have been related to Josiah Cobb.

Because of the volumne of data, the Caldwell County books are broken into the following sections:

1809-1813 1814-1818

1819-1823 1824-1828 1829-1835 1836-1841 1842-1845 1845-1848
