The County Levy was the local tax. As this occurred during the time of the Revolutionary War, it may have also been deemed a "Supply Tax". It was called such in Pennsylvania. They would use the money to purchase gunpowder, salt and arms.
Also, Dunmore County became Shenandoah in 1777 and the County was a government in rebellion. The Government was no longer the Crown and the Royal Governors so they needed money for courts, clerks, Justices, etc.
