Jackson County, Missouri, tax receipts

A Pioneer Home Engraving, unknown artist, 1881. (History of Jackson County, Missouri, 1881, p. 25.)

L. Tom Perry Special Collections is pleased to announce the availability of a new digitized collection: Jackson County, Missouri, tax receipts (MSS SC 631).  The collection includes seven individual state and county property tax receipts for various properties owned in Jackson County, Missouri, from 1839 to 1843.

While there are no known connections to Latter-day Saint property in the collections, likely since the Church and its members had abandoned most of their property in this county in the mid 1830s, these receipts still provide context to the people and places in the county around the time the Church was active in the area.
