Hello
Thanks for the info about when a man could stop paying a poll tax. IF a man owned land in Clarke co Ga in the early 1800's did he still have to pay a poll tax or was that just for a man that did not own land who was living in the state of Georgia. George Ray was living in Clarke co Ga in the ealy 1800's. Would there be a section showing where he was paying a poll tax one year and then the next year he was not paying a poll tax. I think he was probaly born about 1740 give or take a few years so I thought that maybe it would indicate when he turned 60 by showing he no longer had to pay a poll tax. Thanks,Ross
