What qualified one for being on the Black Lick, Indiana Co, PA tax list of 1807. I have a Mary Downey, spinster that is on the list. She would be about 37 or 38 years old.
A second question if you can: Mary was not married and about 24 years old when her father died in Westmoreland Co in 1793. Her brothers, mother, and married sister are mentioned in the will, but she is not. Would anyone know why she would not have been included.
Thank you in advance for your advice, Art Faint, in New Hampshire
