Can anyone tell me what early records exist in Patrick County? I need to find early tax lists or Census records before 1850 for my research on FAIN, BRANCH, NEWMAN, HOWELL, HARRIS, PACK and other families. I don't want to search for something that doesn't exist!

Also, does anyone happen to have access to PCVA Deaths 1870-1896? When I visited the PCVA Courthouse and searched these records I didn't find the death record for my Olive Branch, who died after 1880. I've heard that his death record is at the Courthouse and includes his parents names, etc. And the Death records from PCVA that are on VA GenWeb Archives for that period begin with surnames starting with "E", so his isn't there. I had such a short amount of time for my research in PCVA that I didn't get all the info I needed, so I'll have to plan another trip.

Can anyone help with this info?
