  • Documents

    1815 Knox Co KY Tax List-Elizabeth and her three sons Henry, John, and Lewis. Elizabeth's 100 acre tract was on the Poor Fork, entered by Andrew Cope. Cope did not give her a deed until 1825 indicating she probably bought it as a contract for deed.

    1811 Knox Co KY John Back on the 175 acres on the Poor Fork he bought from his brother-in-law Thomas Robinson. His brother "Luwis"Back 100 acres on the Poor Fork land granted to Andrew Cope that Elizabeth later settled on, bought from Cope, and sold to son Lewis before her death. Both Thomas Robinson and Andrew Cope had moved from Knox Co KY to White Co TN the year before. Henry Back was on a different page in this tax year. Elizabeth may have been on the 100 acres she later occupied but the tax assessor chose to record a man's name.
