Re: Northern and southern parts of the county for tax lists

I believe the Dan River was the dividing line for tax purposes. It was a barrier at that time and required
crossing on ferries. My great great grandfather was in
the southern district from 1836 (time of his marriage)
until 1859 (when he moved with his wife's family east
of Scottsburg and near the present day state park). The
place of his settlement in 1859 was only a stone's throw
from the Dan River (northern side) but he then was listed
as in the northern district from that point forward.
