The Solid Men of Elgin - 1864

Kane County, Illinois

Source:  Source:  Kane County History by Joslyn & Joslyn, 1908

Below are the incomes for 1864, on which the 5% special war tax was paid by such Elgin citizens as were supposed to be liable for it. Income of $600 was exempt from taxation, as well as sundry payments for repairs, taxes etc, so that the amount set opposite the names is only the excess above the exemptions.  

There were undoubtedly many others whose income rendered them liable to taxation but who escaped by the neglect of the assessor or the evasions of themselves.  These are NOT in alphabetical order, but only letter order.
