Jersey County Tax ListsRead first! These are transcriptions from poor newspaper photocopies and are subject to transcription error. In addition, there are a number of spelling errors in the newspapers. For some names, just using a “find” on the page may not find your ancestor, since spellings can be quite unconventional. The best use of this information is confirming a person’s residence for the years between the censuses. Most of these lists only include the property owner. Note that some property owners may not have been Jersey County residents. None of these lists are comprehensive (e.g., if the person wasn’t delinquent, he/she would not be listed on the delinquent tax lists).
