Tax Lists – 1819 to 1823

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.
Caleb C Cobb Eldest son of Gideon Dyer Cobb and Modena Chittenden Clark
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.
Note: starting with this section, I have not included the records for Matthew's sons Chittenden and Matthew Jr. except for their joint holdings with the Cobbs. I have copies of the pages with their other entries, but have not extracted them here. Please inquire if you are interested in them.
Elijah G. Galusha Cousin to Modena (Clark) Cobb; son of her aunt Beulah Chittenden by her first marriage.
Ann Cobb Widow of Josiah Cobb, who was unrelated to the Cobbs of Vermont.
Jesse Cobb Unrelated to the Cobbs of Vermont, believed to have been related to Josiah Cobb

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

For background information on these tax lists see the first page of Caldwell County tax lists.

1819:

The pages for 1819 appear on their face to be complete, but they include fewer than half the names found in other years, with all but the following of those of interest here omitted.
