What are inmates? In the Pennsylvania tax and exoneration my relative is listed as an inmate. What does that mean? jail? or does it mean they are living on land they do not yet own?
He is listed as an inmate years 1768 and 1779
in 1781 he has 180 acres of land, 3 horses and 3 cows worth 400 and is no longer listed as an inmate. page 72 inmates listed that year have animals but no land
