I'm looking at the Charlotte County Personal Tax records for 1798 (paywalled) as shown in this image:

I cannot read the first name of the last Brizendine on that page of four of them. First is Isaac Brizendine (his estate), second is Isaac Junior, third is Joshua, but the fourth male is unclear to me. I think it begins with an I or a J and it appears to be a short name, maybe John?

Here is a close up image of the name:

I think that you are right. The fourth name is John Brizendine.

  • If the list is alphabetically sorted, it cannot be John.

  • @J.J.D. What makes you think the list is alphabetically sorted? Aug 22 '17 at 0:26
  • I started my comment with an 'if'. Since the segment is short and starts with Isaac followed by Joshua, I was wondering.

    @J.J.D. The Virginia Tax lists are definitely not alphabetical. At most you get sorting by first letter of last name.
