Mecklenburg County, Virginia Records
Yanceys listed on Property Tax Records 1780 - 1860

DJY: The following records were obtained from a transcript given me by one Rebecca Yancey of Memphis, Tennessee. They appear to have been transcripted directly from personal property tax records of Mecklenburg County Virginia - which appear to have been taken yearly, although there were some breaks in certain years. Although the records here listed are for every 10 years (corresponding to when Federal Census' were taken) - these records did NOT come from Federal Census Population Schedules. These records are a valuable resource - because they record the family over time - showing where and how much land was owed by each family.
