Augusta County is one of the most unique counties in America. It was created in 1738 out of Orange County. The boundaries were set in an unusual fashion as it was to be the western most county in Virginia. The Shenandoah Valley was the eastern border with the western one to go to the Mississippi River then north to the head waters of the Mississippi, Missouri and Ohio Rivers and back to the beginning. At present, there are seven states within the bounds of Augusta County. Out of Augusta, many counties and states were created eventually, leaving the county primarily in the Shenandoah Valley. The county was named for Augusta of Saxe-Gotha, Princess of Wales and mother of the future King Georgia III of Great Britain.
This set of tax records is a listing of those who basically owned the land and the slaves. The name is of the tax payer with the number of white polls in the household and the number of slaves they owned. Be sure to sound out the name as there was no standardization of the spelling at the time and most wrote it as they heard it.
“Ash, Charles - 1 white poll and 0 slaves...
Anderson, Samuel - 1 white poll and 2 slaves...”
