1858 Assessment List

Dorchester County Board of County Commissioners
Assessment List
Maryland State Archives C685-14
Election District 2

There are five additions and three deletions when comparing the 1858 Assessment list to the prior list from 1857.  There was likely a reassessment conducted between 1857 and 1858.  Further adjustments were made before the 1859 Assessment List was created, as nine people that appear on the 1858 list do not appear on the 1859 list.  The updates are noted in yellow.  The first number is the value of real estate and the second number is the value of the personal estate.  I will be putting this data in table format in the future.
