In 2014 I featured a series of blog posts introducing you to 2,014 names. For the most part they were names that were brand new to me as well. Some names may be more familiar but I found the meaning or origin or some other aspect of the name made it worthy of inclusion here. You may love some of the names, you may hate some, but hopefully you enjoy learning about all of them.

Taxes Paid by Josiah and Robert Lockhart

What the above shows is how much taxes Josiah and Robert Lockhart paid in the year 1773 - from Propietary and State Tax Lists of the County of Lancaster (Pennsylvania). The blanks indicate that they did not have any acreage, horses, cattle, or servants.


Notice that in 1782, Robert is no longer listed with Josiah. The first column with a 1 in it refers to cattle owned and the next column to servants. So he had one cow and one servant.


Not sure who this Henry Lockhart is, but he appears on page 750 of the book, owing a sizable tax and with 5 acres and 2 cows. This is also for the year 1782.
