I have a page from a publication I can't identify which I inherited from the records of a deceased cousin several years ago. The top of the page reads:

North Carolina Genealogy - Fall 1969, page 2412

My cousin wrote: 'Orange Co NC 1779 Tax List Quaker' at the top of the page.

The list begins with page 54 of a tax list. The page is 2 columns.

Then there is an entry on page 55:
Quakers who failed returning Lists of their Taxable property
John Stanfield 2720- is one name on the list

I don't know what the numbers mean. Is this total number of persons in the household, is this the tax paid, what?

On page 56: no mention of the Quakers. 2 names interest me:
Henry Holloday 1000-
Robert Holloday 600-

At the bottom of the page:
A true Coppy Test Nat. Roches??
(A total of 1,583 names - Editor)

Can anyone identify this publication? I think it's from an old Quarterly but I don't know which one, etc.

Thanks, Mary Bittick Gallano
