984 - 10/20/2010 12:00:01 PM - - My grandfather was William Warren Taylor..from Claiborne Parish, La. In about 1925 he was killed while cutting firewood and a tree kicked back on him. He had two brothers.. George and James (Jimmy). Jimmy settled at Lake Providence, LA and Geoge settled near by. I don't know their fathers name but was told that he came from Mississippi and never communicated with anyone from there. Any help will be appreciated.

983 - 10/15/2010 3:34:51 PM - - I just want to say how impressed I was with the Taylor Family Reunion this last August. I half expected to share a potluck picnic in the park while everyone divided into small groups of their closest cousins. I went in knowing not a single soul and met lots of real nice cousins whom I hope I can get to know better. The presentations on genealogy, family history skits, and most impressive, the DNA Genealogy studies on our Taylor Heritage were top notch. My immediate family wish now that they had also attended. I look forward to seeing a posting of these presentations on this website if they are still in the works. Thanks to all who made this reunion a real special experience. Charlie Taylor

980 - 9/26/2010 5:38:39 AM - - Does anyone have an old copy of From a log cabin to the Whitehouse"? It is out of print but is supposed to be very good about the President's siblings. I am interested in learning more about the president's brother.George1780-1829 Researchers have said in articles that he died young, was hit by a falling tree and was crippled for the rest of his life. He was not in the military. The records on ancestry show two different Geroge's as being the brother. One died in Tippacanoe, the other one died in Louisville. Same parents shown. Many records say he married and had three childern. Wife- Mary A. Campbell, Children Martha Taylor, Sarah 5/21/1850-1881 and Toliver 12/6/22 - 11/30/64. Toliver Taylor was my great great grandfather. And my family records say that his father was Elijah TAylor 1799- . Toliver and Elijah lived in Anderson SC. Toliver was born in Charleston. But I can not find any records anywhere that show them living together. I can find Elijah having several children that were a lot younger than Toliver. Toliver was killed in the Battle of Franklin Tenn. in the civil war. The is a big memorial on Findagrave for Toliver connected with his grave (it is show under George TAylor) on the regular intenet. I would really like to know who's son he was. Elijah was a first cousin and George died when Toliver was only 8 yrs old. Elijah owned or lived on several TAylor plantations in the Piedmont. So he could have been sent there when his father died. George could not work and was said to depend on his family for money so that would add up. But who is Ann Campbell. Elijah married a Mary Leverett. I can find them with children, brothers etc. on the internet. but nothing about Toliver. Does anyone know? Thank you. Sallie

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.

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.
