Petition Surnames, Monroe County, 1799

The following surnames were taken from a petition circulated in Monroe County, Virginia requesting that their parent county, Greenbrier, cease efforts to tax them. The signatures were all in the same hand, indicating that a copyist created the list from a different source document of original signatures. This may account for the many spelling variations of surnames.
