Overview
The New Kent Land Tax Records include the families of Jacob and William Gilliam. William's Estate is inherited by Epaphroditus. Epaphroditus' Estate is inherited by Sally Morris and Richard L. Gilliam.

Jacob appears in the records from 1782 until 1786 where he is taxed on 160 acres. It is not clear what became of Jacob's 160 acres after 1786; however, in 1787 there are several individuals that are taxed on 160 acres. They include: John Slater, Robert Taylor, Thomas Morris, Austin Hewlett, Daniel Jones, Thomas Jerdon and Samuel Holt. There is no evidence that the acreage of the above was also that of Jacob Gilliam. It would be of interest to see if any of the above were taxed on 160 acres in 1786.
