Werner Mohn in Loudoun Co., Virginia

The below info should be of interest to many of you. I couldn't find a particular thread where it fit best, so I'll start a new one. I e-mailed a Loudoun Co. lookup volunteer about Werner Mohn and received the following tithable and tax info:

======================

from "The Index to the Tithables of Loudoun Co. 1758-1786"
by Hopkins:
MOON
Joseph 78c-79c
Warner (Varner) 72s-74s, 82s, 86s
c=Cameron Parish (everything east of Goose
Creek)
s=Shelburne Parish (west and north of Goose Creek)

>From "The Personal Property Tax Lists for the year 1787
for Loudoun Co.
VA" by Schreiner-Yantis and Love:
Verner Moon self responsible for tax 3 horses 5
cattle

>From "The Personal Property Tax Lists for the year 1788
for Loudoun Co.
VA" by Schreiner-Yantis and Love:
George Moon Andrew Betts responsible for tax 0
property
Varner Moon self responsible for tax 1 horse

>From "The Personal Property Tax Lists for the year 1789
for Loudoun Co.
VA" by Schreiner-Yantis and Love:
George Moon Christian Crumrine responsible for the
tax no
property


============

What's particularly great about this is that it not only establishes that Werner was at the right place and time to be father of Abraham, George, Jacob, etc., but also that he was there so early (at least 1772). So it seems to be true that Abraham really was "from Virginia."
