In an earlier post I mentioned that I thought 4th Great Grandfather Daniel Joseph lived in Augusta County, Virginia with a business interest in Rockingham County, Virginia. Contrary to what I said, a Feb. 12, 1791 land deed does indeed place his residence in neighboring Rockingham County. The personal property tax lists for Rockingham County include Daniel as early as 1789. He didn’t own any taxable items in 1789. In 1790, 1791, 1792 and 1794 he was taxed for a horse. Daniel was taxed for an ordinary in 1795. An ordinary is a tavern, inn or saloon. Generally, wherever a person is taxed for personal property is the place that person lives.
Eve (Hanger) Joseph married again Jan. 5, 1799 to Warner Peters in Rockingham County.
