The 1886 Jackson County Chattel Tax assessment was extracted from the lists that appeared in the Jackson Journal newspaper. Keep in mind that this is a chattel tax list and is thus more comprehensive than just a land tax list. These lists are also important because there is no 1890 regular Federal census for Jackson county due to the fire which destroyed those records many decades ago. Thanks go out to Sandy Fackler, Tom Tripp, Cynthia Dalton, and Anthony Coyan who transcribed these lists from the newspaper articles.
