The following records
include Real Estate and Personal Property Assessments and/or Tax Levies for the
Town of Lincoln, Wood County from 1861 onward. This will be a long, ongoing
project so it may be a few years before all 140 + volumes are transcribed.

The Town of Lincoln was
know by several different names prior to becoming Lincoln, including Seneca and
Johnson. It was also composed of all or part of today's towns of Marshfield,
Rock, Richfield and Lincoln. To sort out what area is being referred to use the
following descriptions which are used through out the records:
Town 25 Range 2 East Lincoln
Town 25 Range 3 East
Town 24 Range 2 East Rock
Town 24 Range 3 East
The names of the land owners
are spelled as recorded in the books and no attempt has been made to standardize
them. Also Section 16 of all towns was set aside as school lands and was
usually not taxable unless it had been sold to a private party.
An index for each decade will
be created. Perhaps some day a master index of the 14+ decades will be
completed as well.
