1787 Samuel Ritchie's Property Tax List: Lower District of Russell County VA.:

DRURY ELKINS 1 titheable none 16-21yrs of age

JESSE ELKINS 1 titheable none 16-21yrs of age Page 48, Russell Co. VA Records by: Albert & Albert 1973.

1787 Drury Elkins, to be on grand jury, OBL(Order Book L), Page 61, Russell County, VA.

(Note here: "Grand jury is in error. Another update from G. Christy of Richmond, Virginia to Carol Stultz, photo-copied this data : Court Order Books 1786-1904 (Defendants, reel 21) Taken from Book 1, Page 61, so we are certain this is the same case. I am typing this data and find the copied page at end of this report, as follows:

(Date: yr 1787 - Plaintiff is Commonwealth, Defendant is Drury Elkins, Kind of Action: Subpeona,as follows: "Ordered that the Clerk of notify by subpoena, the following persons: Robert Gravat, William Hiton, Charles Scaggs, Joseph Meredith, Nathan Blevens, William Frame, DRURY ELKINS, Joseph Johnson, James Fuget, William Ratliff, Junior, John Ratliff, John Vandike, William Ratliff senior, William Mullen, Joseph Hatfield, (to page 62) George Hatfield, Alexander McFarland, Robert Vickers and John Burns to appear before our Trustees of our Court of our said County at the courthouse on the Third Tuesday in October next to show cause if any they can why they should not be fined and liable excet, for failing to give William Webb Commissioner a List of their Taxable property according to law." (This leads us to believe that the above persons are not there, wouldn't you think? Does this group go on later to Kentucky and return just long enough to sell their holdings in Virginia?)cs

1787 Tax List of Russell County, Virginia to check out data on the above Subpeonas which were given out on above: Upon checking the Personal Property tax lists of 1787 of Russell County, VA, (Netti Schreiner-Yantis & Florene (Speakman) Love, we turn to the page in which they list the taxpayers by dates which shows neighbors, etc., as follows:

Page 490 - The Commissioner was required to note the day he visited each taxpayer. This makes it possible to re-arrange the lists and determine probable neighbors:
