Thanks, Lisa, for confirming that my research skills are not all that poor after all. I have found decades old journals in my semi-local (500 miles) genealogy library with reprinted indices and almost illegible microfiche (yes, microfiche, not microfilm) of both 1810 and 1820 Wake County tax lists. The question remains, why are these not available on-line through ancestry.com and genealogy.com? More to the point, why do these usually reliable sources not alert researchers that Wake County records are not included in search results, like they do for other completely or partially lost records in their information pages about the databases? I sent in this very question to ancestry.com at the same time I posted this original query, but have yet to get a response. Meanwhile, my ancestor, for whom I have a marriage bond in 1818 in Wake County, is indeed listed by name in the 1820 Wake County tax list, along with his bondsman, and several other households of the same surname. Also his father-in-law, and his future brother-in-law. Progress at last, now that I know THEY ARE THERE!!!
