I found the 1820 Wake Co Tax List in the "Journal of North Carolina Genealogy," Spring 1963. The bound Journals were at my local library. I think there is a small portion of the tax list on the usgenweb site for Wake Co. The names are in alphabetical order (more or less) by each district.
Unfortunately, there are no 'marks' for children; only the head of household. The actual file (Archives #99.252) lists the acres of land, valuation of the land, free polls (males only that were of a taxable age), slaves, stores, studs, and "Jack asses."
While I did find some of my families listed, the main names I wanted (of course) were not on the list. My families always seemed to be among the missing.
