Certificates Received of J.C. Bryan, Sheriff of Craven for Taxes 1785

The following listing was found in the Treasurer's and Comptrollers Papers (Box 33, folder 2: 1770-1799) at the North Carolina Archives. The listing below includes only the names of the individuals, not the amounts paid to the Sheriff. The original four paged document numbers the names from 1 to 113. There are only 111 names on the list, as number 1 has no name listed beside it, and number 72 is omitted. Beside each name on the original is three columns of numbers which appear to be amounts owed in pounds, shillings, and pence. It is unclear what the first two columns represent (possibly polls and land), but the third column is the total of the previous two columns. Also, I am unsure what "Bounty" indicates in three cases on the list (twice below George Simmons and once below John Nelson).
