Alexandria County, Virginia African American Registry in 1859

"A list of Free Negroes in the County of Alexandria returned delinquent for the non-payment of Capitation Tax for the year 1859
by Charles M. Castleman, Deputy Sheriff for James Sangster, Sheriff of said County."

Free adult males and females heads of household were required to pay an annual "head tax" of one dollar each, in addition to any real and personal property taxes owed. The following is a list of those free African Americans who had failed to pay the 1859 tax by June 5, 1860.

Three names were crossed out, as either mistakes or late payers. As for the rest, there is a notation that they possessed no real property in the county upon which could be placed a lien. The document is from the Library of Virginia.

The names were originally arranged roughly in alphabetical order, by the first letter of each surname. The names have here been put in full alphabetical order. All abbreviated first names have been spelled out. A few names have been corrected for spelling errors. T.D.
