INTRODUCTION

I discovered this 1848 Tax List in the Bibb County Courthouse in the summer of 2000. To the best of my ability I have abstracted information that might be of help to other researchers. I have attempted to retain the original spelling. It is difficult to be certain as to spelling/writing of "A" and "O", "I" and "J", and "S" and "L", etc. Keep this in mind as you look through this publication.

Please remember that the land descriptions are incomplete and often inaccurate. Read the last two pages of this publication for a better understanding of the problem with the land descriptions.
