1890 GREGG COUNTY TAX LIST
This book contains names of Gregg County citizens appearing in the 1890 tax roll of the county as well as the precincts in which they resided. If they were landowners, the acreage and headrights were also copied. Town lots are indicated by: Gw - Gladewater; Kil - Kilgore; Long - Longview; L.J. - Longview Junction; T.A. - Turner Addition. The names were copied in the order they appeared on the roll.
