1787 Rockingham Land Tax list District 6, 7, and 8 [modern day Pendleton County]

The three districts which covered what became the southern 3/4 (roughly) of modern day Pendleton County appear to have been divided according to the three river valleys - 6 was South Fork valley; 7 was South Branch valley; and 8 was the North Fork valley. The names of those who lived in the northern most 1/4 (roughly) of modern day Pendleton County were on the Hardy County Land Tax List for 1787.

The later lists of soon-to-be formed Pendleton County were divided into two halves on the opposite axis of the river valleys - the northern or lower district and the southern or upper district so the lists two years apart from Rockingham's 1787 to Pendleton's 1789 cannot just be 'bumped' against each other for comparison.
