More Taxes

Well, I’m chasing those Crawfords thru another set of Kentucky tax lists. This time, I’m looking in Pulaski County, Kentucky. Another Crawford researcher told me that the William Crawford found in the Madison County, Kentucky tax lists moved to Pulaski County prior to moving to Missouri.

On the off chance that I would find some of the other Crawford families in Pulaski County, I read the 1799-1822 tax lists. In addition to William Crawford,  I found an Alexander Crawford who may be the same Alexander Crawford on the 1792 Madison County, Kentucky tax list.

The information I found regarding William Crawford shows that he paid taxes in Pulaski county for 1799-1802. William also owned 400 acres of land in Pulaski County. Since William does not appear on the Garrard County, KY tax lists after 1797, the Pulaski County information fills in the gaps between Garrard County and his arrival in Ste. Genevieve. However, I need to locate additional records to confirm this is the same William.

Alexander Crawford appears on the 1799 tax list with 200 acres of land on Buck Creek. Alexander is shown on the tax list with this 200 acres thru 1809. However, the Alexander Crawford listed in 1810 is not shown as owning any land. This Alexander Crawford without land continues to appear on the lists thru 1822.

There are potential sons for Alexander Crawford who do appear on the tax lists. James Crofford makes an appearance in 1805 as a male over 16. However, James Crofford is not listed on the same page as Alexander Crawford. This is the only listing for James Crofford.

Adams Crawford appears on the tax list in 1811 as a male over 21. Alexander Crawford is listed on the same page, but there are two names between Alexander and Adams Crawford.

In 1814, Adams Crawford is listed along with a Joseph Crawford on the next page. Alexander Crawford was not found for this tax year.

In 1815, there are four Crawford listings: Adams, Joseph, Alexander and John. Adams and Alexander Crawford continue to be listed on the tax lists thru 1822.

In 1819, there is another clue about this potential family: Nancy Crawford. Nancy Crawford only appears on the 1819 list. Joseph no longer appears. Could Nancy be his widow?

There isn’t enough information to conclude anything about Alexander. However, there are hints pointing to land records. These tax lists also suggest potential sons for Alexander.
