Tax Lists – 1824 to 1828

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
Robert L Cobb Second 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.
Elijah G. Galusha Cousin to Modena (Clark) Cobb; son of her aunt Beulah Chittenden by her first marriage.
James Clark Born in Virginia, married Mary Willard Cobb, daughter of Gideon Dyer Cobb and Modena Chittenden Clark in 1829.
Jesse Cobb Unrelated to the Cobbs of Vermont.
  Note: In this section, I have not included the records for Matthew Lyon'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.

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

1809-1813 1814-1818 1819-1823 1824-1828
this page
1829-1835 1836-1841 1842-1845 1845-1848

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