About Idaho County, Idaho Newspaper Tax Lists, 1886-93

Located at the base of Idaho's long northern handle, Idaho County boasted a population of over 3,000 persons in the 1890s. This database is a collection of tax lists compiled from various newspapers printed in the area between 1886 and 1893. Researchers will find the taxpayers' name, township of residence, type of tax, and the newspaper date. The three types of tax lists included in this collection are "delinquent tax," "Solid Muldoons" (which constituted taxpayers of over $1000 worth of property), and "assessment rolls." For researchers of Idaho ancestry, this database can reveal a great deal about a person's relative wealth.
