My Grandfather was France Albert Taylor b:1919, d:1996. His father was George Albert "Bud" Taylor born between 1880-1885 in Alabama and died sometime in the 1960's near Rogers Arkansas. He married Michie Tamara Minor b: Oct 1879 and she died sometime in the 1950's to 1960's of breast cancer. She was cared for by an "Aunt" and I don't know if that was one of her sisters or one of her daughters or where she was cared for or where she died. Some have said that she went with him to Arkansas after 1960 others have said she died in Alabama,Ohio or Michigan. I cannot find their final resting place anywhere. Her parents were William Ostin Minor/Mary Melindie Webb. I am still trying to find out the mystery of his parents. Some say is father was George William Taylor and others say his father was George Washington Taylor and mother Mary Susan Church. I do know his uncle was John Burton "Hol" or "Hall" Taylor and their father was William Taylor married to Eliza.

941 - 5/9/2010 9:46:00 AM - - My family is decended from Richard Taylor through George Taylor brother of Zachary Taylor. The Taylor family says in may things that George was injured by a tree falling on him and died young and penniless. Which is not true. He may have been injured but he went to N. Carolina and Georgia and overseed several plantations. Married Mary Everet (possibly Campbell) They had one son named Toliver who died at the battle of Franklin Tenn in the civil war. Toliver had 9 children one was my great grandmother who did leave records of this. I have checked this out with others on ancestry and this is the true story of what happened to George. But I don't know why and feel there is more to the story. I am looking for family pictures and any information others have. Our's was burned with the houses after the civil war. Thank you

939 - 5/7/2010 1:08:20 PM - - My second Great-grandmother was Elizabeth Taylor, whose parents were born in New Jersey and moved north to Clarkson, Monroe County, New York in the late 1700s. Elizabeth was born in Monroe County in 1903. She married my great-great grandfather, James D. Taylor, and they owned a farm in East Clarkson, Monroe, NY. Both James and Elizabeth lived into their nineties and James was said to have been a farmer of sterling qualities. James was born in Essex County, New Jersey and traveled north to Ontario County with his parents, Daniel and Marytje Pier Sigler. They are buried in the Knapp Cemetery in Parma, NY. James D., who was born in 1804, married Elizabeth Taylor and they bought a farm in East Clarkson, Monroe County, NY next to one William Taylor. It is possible that Elizabeth was the daughter of William Taylor, but we are not sure. James D. and Elizabeth Taylor Sigler are buried together in the Parma Union Cemetery in Monroe County, NY. Their children were: Guy, William Henry, a Civil War vet and my ancestor; Mary "Polly," who married Mr. Knapp, and James Delos Sigler. We are trying to find out the names of Elizabeth Taylor's parents and siblings and where her parents were born in Essex County, New Jersey (possibly Acquackanonk) or Passaic, New Jersey. The Sigler family was Dutch, and the Taylor family probably was as well, although it could have been English. Any help would be appreciated.

They never talked about their family or where they came from, but on the 1880 census, it indicated my grandfather specified his parents came from Alabama. Anybody out there with similiar info, please give me a holler.

890 - 1/17/2010 5:15:59 PM - - Interested in finding information on the Taylor family of Philadelphia, PA and Delaware.

Jermiah's parents, Benjamin and Sarah, were from Delaware. Further information on ancestors would be appreciated. Also interested in finding descendants of Margaret Vickers Taylor's brother, Isaac Taylor (1875-1914). He had at least two children, Park Taylor and Margaret Vickers Taylor. Would also be interested in hearing from any descendants of Jeremiah and Margaret Vickers Taylor. Their nine sons were: Andrew Jackson, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, James Madison, Jeremiah, Charles, Isaac, Benjamin Franklin (killed at Antietam)and Henry Horn. Thanks for any info. Bill.

889 - 1/17/2010 1:45:57 PM - - I am looking for Ida May Taylor -b. 18Aug 1875 in Logan Co Ohio. She married Joseph Urias Hoyt b. 3Sept 1869 Hardin Co Ohio and d. 25 Oct 1914 in Lima Ohio. They had 2 children: Oather Hoyt b.26 Feb 1893 and Faye E. Hoyt b.1894. My grandfather was Oather and from his album I found a picture of Ida that says: "Ida and second husband Sloan but not a first name given." Oather married Blanche Hites in 1914 Faye E. - I found a record in Michigan where she was married to Ransom Ross and they recorded that Faye died in 1937 in Wayne Co Michigan. Family history has that Oather (maybe Grover Oather) was reared by a cousin near Dola Ohio and he never spoke much of Faye although at his death my grandmother did know of a sister in Michigan (which I found later Faye). Any info appreciated
