- The General Assembly passed an act on 9 February 1808 ordering commissioners of the revenue not to compile lists of taxpayers or collect taxes. On 3 March 1864 the General Assembly suspended the revenue act for 1864 because there were adequate funds already in the treasury. No land tax books exist, therefore, for the years 1808 and 1864.
