Thanks so much for going to all of the trouble to have these records posted on-line. I am a descendant of the Jackson N. (Norman) Richards, and related to other Richards listed on several pages of these records. This is the first time that I have seen Jackson N. Richards identified as the Calhoun County Tax Collector for the years 1862, 1863, and 1864, and as the County Sheriff and "exeficio" Tax Collector for 1867. I now plan to do some additional research to find out Jackson Norman Richards' role in County Government for other years, not identified in these records.
Thanks again.

The Richards folks are my line and the Seaborn Pelt is kinfolks too......I believe you see it as Pett......J.N. Richards is Jackson Norman Richards, should anyone ask you. and on one page they have Atkins spelled Adkins.......That's Joel Porter Atkins.
John George Richards was my GGG Grandfather and his first wife was Eliza Porter and his second wife was Frances Grantham.

John George was the son of Thomas Cupples Richards (killed by the Indians in a Fort near Wewa) and they all came to Florida before it was a state from Greene County, Ga. and before that Thomas C.'s father was George Richards, Sr. who died in 1818 in Franklin County, N.C.---He was with Washington in battle....There are thousands of descendants of these Richards in North Florida and now all over the Southeast and elsewhere.......I have met alot of them on the internet and I thank God everyday that I could know some of these kissin kousins before I died...........Joan Richards Herndon in now Early County, Ga. born and raised in Calhoun County..........

Thanking you for taking the time and trouble to bring this to a conveninet spot on the internet for folks like me............

Subj: Alfred Nichols - Calhoun Tax list

Duke Vickery suggested I write to you. My ancestor, Alfred Nichols, was listed in the 1860 Census of Calhoun Co. (Ochese). I cannot read those tax papers as they appear on the website. Duke says there is something about him on p. 4 and p. 10 and said I should write you and ask what the transcriptions say about him. I would appreciate this very much. In 1850, 1870, 1880 and 1900, Alfred is in Jackson Co. FL. I am trying to figure out what period he was in Calhoun.


Subj: Re: Alfred Nichols - Calhoun Tax list

I think you are right. I didn't understand what the book was all about. What you said makes more sense. Somebody did say Alfred Nichols had some kind of county office, but I had never run into it before nor since, so I haven't paid much attention. Can't remember now who said that--maybe Glen Nobles. I just know it's here somewhere and that I ran across it a while back.
Thanks for your help.

I found your interpretation interesting--had not thought of this possibility previously. I noticed in the mill and other accounts I have that sometimes money owed to one person was paid to another's account (some payments were in corn, etc.). I assumed this was because in this way they could repay money owed....does that make sense? This could have been the case also here but-- Regarding the page 5 entry: My interpretation was that Alford Nickols was owed money from the county for services/work/whatever not listed. In their business meeting this bill had been presented, voted on, and passed in favor of paying. James Stand (Standfill/Stanfill/Stanfield) then was directing the treasurer to pay Alford.

Regarding the page 11 entry: This was my interpretation also. This, I think, follows for all of the entries. What do you think? If this could be so, then Alford may still have been living in Calhoun County.


Thanks for your help. Sounds like others were paying the taxes for Alfred Nichols. Makes me wonder if he still owned Calhoun Co. property but had already moved to Jackson Co.
