1800 Tax List for Morris Township, Greene County, PA

- Transcribed by DebbieOvechka

Continuing with the earliest tax lists for each township in Greene County, we have herewith the Morris Township list for the year 1800. Morris Township was formed in 1799, from parts of Morgan, Franklin and Finley Townships. The assessors were Isaac Pettit and Moses Foster; occupations were not designated so we may only assume that all were farmers.

Previous townships listed have been Aleppo (1818), Center (1820), Cumberland (1798), Dunkard (1809), Franklin (1809), Greene (1797), Jackson (1841), Jefferson (1800), Marion (1836), Monongahela (1830) and Morgan (1800).
