Today, while searching Bernita Jones Sharp's records I ran across a
photocopy of the tax list that you mention. At the bottom of the page is
"Page 62 1790 First Census of Kentucky
Fayette County Virginia created in 1780 became a
part of Kentucky when that commonwealth was admitted
to the Union in 1792."

The tax list dates are all in 1800, but Charles Cooley & John Cooley in
Lincoln County is are dated 8/16/1800.

The 1800 census for KY does not exist. William, Daniel and Joseph had been
in Kentucky for some time. This is the first indication that James was
there in 1800. Good show! A good reading of the Green county tax lists
would be very beneficial.
