7.  Christian County, Kentucky, Tax Rolls, 1797-1816.  Heritage Quest, Microfilm No. V20-72 (extracted by Diana Gale Matthiesen).  A grey cell means that datum was not taken that year.  The county was divided into just two districts, initially North-South (1797-1803), then East-West (after 1803).  The date the list was turned in to the county clerk by the "lister" (tax collector) was not recorded after 1811.  I have transcribed the record verbatim; a question mark indicates my uncertainty as to the reading of the record.

*The county was divided into just two districts:  from 1804 to 1806, into North and South Districts; beginning in 1807, into East and West Districts.  The change tells us that William was in the northeast quadrant of Christian County, which is confirmed by the location of the West Fork of the Pond River in today's northeastern Christian Co.
