205 years ago today - 1-May 11, 1814

Joseph Sr. is listed in the Lebanon (NH) assessment records as owing $2.00 invoice, an 86-cent town tax, 72-cent school tax, $1.16 highway tax, 32-cent state tax, and no "minister's tax" . Unlike the previous years, he apparently did not own enough property to qualify for voting, which is consistent with Lucy's statement that the family was very poor after their bout with typhoid.
