Hardy County in 1800
Names found on Property Tax Lists for the County

Was your family in the county in 1800 or before? Tax lists are one resource to begin with. They are especially important as the census records for the earliest US census were lost.
The source for these names is Virginians in 1800: Counties of West Virginia by Steven A. Bridges. He extracted them from the Property Tax Lists for 1800. This book is excellent for locating your names across the counties of WV and you will want to see it to check on the additional information it contains on the listings. I have added some variant spellings of the names and given the number of individual entries under each surname. If no number is shown, there was but one entry.
