Slave Name Roll Project Contribution: Slaves in Rockingham County, Virginia

Last July a woman left a link on my genealogy Facebook page, Tangled Roots and Trees, about a series of source documents that mentioned slaves by name. They had been added to the website of Binns Genealogy, a company that sells Virginia county tax lists on CD. The company had made the pages for the 1782 Rockingham County, Virginia, free for some period of time. The Library of Virginia also has the lists for some counties on microfilm.

After the Revolutionary War, the counties in Virginia, began taxing land and personal property beginning in 1782. Any white male over the age of 21 was required to pay. The records include some information about real estate holdings, personal property, and slave holdings. There were 979 tithable white people and 576 blacks in the county in 1782.
