LibraryMiddle RoomTax Valuation Books

I scanned the 1810 Scarborough Tax Valuation Book and uploaded it to Digital Maine. This copy includes the names of the heads of households and what they paid in taxes. Originally compiled by Reuben Seavey and dated 23 July 1810. Who created this copy is unknown, but it was probably copied in the late 1800s or the early 1900s. (Note: This booklet needs indexing and/or transcribing. If you are interested in indexing this book, please contact the Scarborough Historical Society by email.)
