Finley's grandson has had some difficulty paying off Finley's taxes for him. Finley had given his grandson $10 to liquidate a tax bill after learning he was delinquent, but by the time James got to Greenville to pay it off, the tax had been increased to $14.26. The treasurer insisted that the whole amount be paid at once, so James could not pay the $10. He then learned that there were back taxes owed by his father for 1846. He has had to work very hard but he finally has the bill paid. Abstract Number - 308
