291 - 11/11/2007 3:10:52 PM - - I am searching for the Virginia ancestors of my gggggrandfather, John Taylor. I have this information: Birth: 25 Jul 1795 in Essex Co, VA Death: 2 Jan 1882 in White River Township, Johnson County, Indiana Burial: 3 Jan 1882 Johnson Co, IN MARC: 1821 Fincastle, VA Occupation: owner/operator grist mill Johnson Co, IN Childhood: John [2] Taylor was born in Essex Co, VA and grew up in Alleghany Co, VA.

Martha Melvina Taylor b. 3 Feb 1843, IN; d. 30 Mar 1843, an infant 7. William Leroy Taylor b. 20 May 1844, IN; d. 5 Mar 1863 at the Battle of Thompsons Station Military: John [2] Taylor served two terms in the war of 1812. He fought alongside his second cousin, Zachary Taylor. He stood guard over President Madison, as the capitol burned in Washington. His father, John [1] Taylor, served in the Revolutionary War. (from John's own testimony) Migration: From Virginia to Indiana. In the autumn of 1829, John [2] Taylor and Sarah Brunnemer Taylor arrived in Johnson Co, IN, with their two eldest children and Sarah's parents, John and Christine Kisling Brunnemer. 1880 census: John Taylor [2] is a widower living with his son, Henry B. Taylor, and Henry's family in Johnson Co, IN. John died two years later, age 87. Two newspaper obituaries for John [2] Taylor follow: OBIT #1: John [2] Taylor was reared in Virginia and learned the carpenter's trade there. Prior to his marriage he served in the War of 1812, marrying after its close. In 1828, after the birth of two of his children, he moved to Indiana, and entered 160 acres of land in White River township, Johnson County, and in addition, bought a small tract containing a cabin, in order to get a shelter for his family as soon as possible. In spite of malaria and drought, those enemies of the early Indiana settler, Mr. Taylor remained upon his farm, cleared and improved it, and was granted a long life of eighty-seven years, his death occurring Jan. 2, 1882. He had witnessed the development of the country and, while enduring the necessary hardships, had done his part toward improving agricultural conditions. At that time much of the land was swampy, and its draining was a very serious problem at that early date. He was obliged to haul his grain to Lawrenceburg and Madison, receiving then but fifty cents a bushel and paying $3 per barrel for salt, with other necessities in proportion. Mr. Taylor was a reliable, sensible farmer and a self-made man. Not having had any educational advantages, he learned by practical experience; and often, in later years, excited wonder by the facility with which he could calculate without the aid of pencil, so necessary to many school-bred men. Prior to coming to Indiana he set his face against intemperance, and refused to allow spirits of any kind to be brought into his home, although it was the general custom to imbibe very freely. After he settled in Indiana he was forced to meet with some opposition on the liquor question, for, while he was always ready to assist his neighbors in rolling logs and building cabins and served them faithfully in every neighborly way, he would never accept whiskey or tempt others with it. The time came when those who opposed his resolution the most respected him all the more, and as the years passed the custom of carousal at these neighborly gatherings about died out. Few men in the neighborhood could be more confidently called upon in family bereavements or trouble for his work never pressed him too hard, or his own affairs needed him too much, to prevent his going miles to help one in trouble, to care for the sick, or to assist in the burying of the dead. He was one of the men whose memory should ever be kept green in Johnson County. Mr. Taylor was a pillar in the Methodist Church, was a fluent talker and was a favorite class leader. He contributed as a Christian duty to its support, and he filled all the offices but pastor. Originally he was a Democrat in politics, but left the party on account of its attitude in regard to slavery. [Democrats were pro-slavery; Republicans opposed slavery.] OBIT #2: Died Jan 3, 1882, at his residence in White River Township, Johnson County, Ind., John Taylor, Sr., in his 87th year. By request we shall endeavor to present a brief tribute to the memory of father Taylor, and at the same time admitting our inability to give the subject that justice it so well merits, and would very readily and cheerfully leave the task to an abler pen. More than a quarter of a century ago, it was our pleasure to form the acquaintance of father Taylor, and in giving a synopsis of his life's history, we are in possession of the following facts: Father Taylor was born in Essex County, Va, July 25th, 1795. He was a pensioner of the war of 1812; was present at the time of the occupation and burning of Washington by the British under General Ross, and was also deputed as a body guard to President Madison during that critical period in our country's history. In 1821 he was united in marriage to Miss Sarah Brunnemer. Two children were born of this marriage before leaving the Old Dominion, Albert K. Taylor being the eldest, who, by the way, is well and favorably known to the people of Morgan and Johnson Counties, and at present occupying an honorable position as a member of the present board of county commissioners of this county. The second, also a son, died in early life. Father Taylor came to Johnson county in the autumn of 1829. William Dunn, another one of the early pioneers of Johnson County, having preceded him but a short time, very cordially tendered him the hospitality of his cabin during the first winter, which contains but one room 16 x 18 feet, in which the two families passed the winter happily together. In the spring following Father Taylor purchased the tract of land upon which he ever after continued to live until his death. In due time five other children were given unto them, three sons and two daughters, of whom three, Rev. J. W. Taylor, Henry Taylor, and Mrs. Martha Throckmorton, are living. A daughter died many years ago while in infancy. Leroy Taylor, a younger son, while in the service of his country during the late war, was killed at Springhill, Tenn. Aunt Sallie [Brunnemer] Taylor preceded Father Taylor to the grave some years since, she having died in 1864. And now as a sequence to the foregoing we desire to speak of Father Taylor individually as a man. It is said the crown and glory of life is character. It is the noblest possession of man, constituting a rank in itself, and all estate in the general good will dignifying every station and exciting every position in society. It exercises a greater power than wealth, and secures all the honors without the jealousies of fame. It carries with it an influence which always tells, for it is the result of proved honor, rectitude and consistency, qualities which, perhaps, more than any other, command the general confidence and respect of mankind. Father Taylor possessed all the attributes of a noble character to an eminent degree. He was, in a word, a model man in all the relations of life, transmitting to posterity that rich legacy so worthy of emulation by all; and how appropriate the language of the text. "Thou shalt come to thy grave in full age, like as a shock of corn cometh in its season." He united with the M.E. Church in his youthful days and it could be truly said of him that he was a veteran in the service of the Master, having given sixty-five years of his noble life to the cause of Christianity in exhorting the ungodly to forsake his ways and accept the terms of offered neurey(sic). "Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord; they rest from their labors and their works do follow them." But he is gone, and we shall see him no more. While we sympathize with the relatives and friends in their great loss, we indulge the hope that our loss is his eternal gain. He was accompanied to his final repose in Shiloh cemetery by a large throng of mourning relatives and friends. The funeral discourse was delivered by Rev. C. W. Woods, from Job, 5th chapter and 28th verse. At the close of a long and eventful life, how triumphantly such an one can exclaim, "I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith; henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness." To his memory which will be ever sacredly cherished in the heart of one who has known him for more than twenty-five years, is this tribute respectfully inscribed.

Source: Family History Library Film 1254288 NA Film Number T9-0288 Page Number 46B Occupation: Carpenter/farmer Census: 1880 Living with son Henry B. Taylor in Johnson County, Indiana A TRIBUTE TO JOHN AND SALLY TAYLOR Author: Viola Grace Taylor Dolen [granddaughter of John and Sally Taylor; daughter of Henry B. Taylor] Of these, our ancestors, not too much is known, only that handed down thru generations; but, that they both came from the first settlers of Virginia, is known from many sources. The Taylors were neighbors of the George Washingtons, and a George Taylor was one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence. John Taylor's father fought in the Revolutionary War. He never knew his [father's] exact age, as his immediate family was scattered by the father's death. But John, sturdy and tall, fought, while just a youth, in Indian Wars, and also in the War of 1812. From these, he bore lifetime scars. He often told of standing guard with his second cousin, Zachary Taylor, over the president [James Madison] when the White House burned. Sallie Kissling Brunnemer became the wife of John [2] Taylor. They lived in Virginia the first years of their wedded life, where three of their six children were born, Albert Kissling, John Wesley, and Sarah Jane. They then moved, by covered wagon, to Indiana to make a new home. Their first place of consideration was the small town of Indianapolis. The wagons were stopped near the present site of the Union Station, but they were told that because of the nearness to White River "fever and ague" were very bad, the place was being shunned. So they drove 25 miles south, and located 3 miles east of White River, near Waverly. As winter was upon them, they lived in a one room cabin with the Dunn family, until spring. Then they located on the farm, on part of which Horace Thockmorton now lives. Here in the early thirties, mighty trees and thickets had to be removed to make the clearings; strenuous work, cutting and burning the trees, men congregated from miles to assist one another. The women set the tables of food, wild turkey for meat, cornpone for bread, wild berries gathered and dried, all cooked by an open fire place, or at the outdoor chip yard. The customary jug of whiskey, thought by many to be absolutely necessary, was never present at Uncle Johnny's. Dearly loved "Uncle Hen" was called to service in the Civil War, wounded and hospitalized in a rebel hospital. He spent 7 months on a straw pallet on the floor, His father in divine love seeing him thru, and giving him strength for the long journey from Prairie Grove, Arkansas to Indiana; an almost impossible one at that time, to live a long and useful life. All this would not be complete without mentioning four others who were truly members of the Taylors'. "Uncle Joe Throckmorton"; "Aunt Mary Ann"; "Aunt Joan"; and "Aunt Mary". All cherished in our memories, all loved and honored. Many interesting stories could be told of those lives, but must be skipped here. But the spirit of true love and humility fostered by the lives of John and Sally Taylor still bear fruit. "Tis only noble to be good" can well be considered the motto of their lives, the story of which runs thru my mind like the reading of a good book full of uplift and courage. REF [T9] Source: List of children comes from their family bible. US Federal Census 1880, John [2] Taylor's father recorded born in England. This is incorrect. His family originally came from England, but written family memoirs reveal that John [1] Taylor's father was born in Virginia. Many facts support this specific Taylor family's having been here for several generations. One possibility for the census error is that John [2] Taylor - age 85 in 1880 - responded to a question that he understood to be, "Where did your ancestors come from?" and thus responded, "England." Source: Over the years, John's granddaughter, Viola Grace Taylor Dolen [daughter of Henry Bascom Taylor], recorded the memoirs of her grandfather, John [2] Taylor: His father had fought in the Revolutionary War. He did not recall the exact birth date of his father, John [1] Taylor. His siblings were scattered among family members when their father died. John [2] often told Grace and other family members about standing guard over White House with his second cousin, Zachary Taylor [who would later become the 12th President] while the White House burned. John's and Zachary's grandmother, Alice Chew Taylor, was a first cousin of James Madison [then president]. Alice was a skilled seamstress who created clothing for James Madison when he was elected to the legislature. Sources: 1. Marriage to Sarah [Sally] Brunnemer is recorded in the county records at Fincastle, VA. 2. "Early Marriages, Wills, and Some Revolutionary War Records, Botetourt Co, VA" by Annie Lowry Worell, says John and Sarah were married in 1821 by Rev. Elisha Knox in Alleghany Co, VA near Fincastle, VA. 3. Same record: John's wife, Sarah, was the daughter of John Brunnemer and Christina Kiesling [Kisling]. 4. Written memoirs of John [2] Taylor, recorded by his granddaughter, Viola Grace Taylor, during the years he lived with the family of his son, Henry Bascom Taylor [Grace's father] after he was widowed.

They had at least 3 children by 1850. She died sometime before 1860 and Samuel married Rebecca ??. I know that Samuel Hiles Taylor (my great grandfather and son of Samuel and Elizabeth Taylor) Lived around the Galena/Kennedyville area of Maryland until about 1880. I have lost track of the senior Samuel Taylor. Diaries tell us that the senior Taylor is buried at "the church at Galena". I can't seem to find him, though. Any help would be appreciated. Another mystery is where the name Hiles originated in this family. It has been handed down for generations, but I can't find the connection.

271 - 7/27/2007 9:44:48 PM - - I am trying to find information on Charles Taylor line of Lubbock, Texas or possibly Ralls, Texas area. Starting with Charles, he may have been in the Army during WWII. He was in Lubbock, Texas in January or February, of 1941. I am told that he died, possibly during the war. He may have had a sister by the name of Dorothy and possibly a brother. Dorothy had a daughter, born about 1940-41. Her name may also have been Jean, she would be my cousin. Jean (if correct) and I last saw each other in Lubbock. It would have been about 1946-47. We vowed we would always stay connected, however, as young children we had no idea how to accomplish that. I have been looking for years. If you know anything that would help, I would like to reconnect with my cousin to connect all the dots on my side.

270 - 7/26/2007 7:41:13 PM - - I am searching for information on Samuel Taylor b. about 1818 in DE. It is possible that his first or middle name is George. Married to Elizabeth ?? b. about 1822. That is all of the information I have on her. They lived in Kent County, Maryland most of his adult life. Their children were: Catherine, William H., Samuel Hiles (my great grandfather) and possibly Virginia. The elder Samuel was widowed after 1850 and was re-married to Rebecca ?? before 1860. Other children were: Ellen, James S., John, Aaron, Andrew J., Mary, Emily J., Charles M., Annie V and Alice. I am sure that the middle name Hiles has some significance, because it has been handed down for 5 generations. I have no clue what significance, though. Any information on the lineage would be greatly appreciated.

247 - - - There are two WILLIAM CAROL TAYLOR'S. One is the son of Vincent Taylor and Mary R. Puckett. He married Martha Jane White and had 12 children. The other one is the son of Robert Taylor and Eliza "Lizzy" Branch. He married Octavia Brooks and had one son that I know of named William Carol Taylor Jr. who married Olivia Collier. This web site,, by Alf Poplin Taylor showing the connection between Taylor and Branch Families states that the son of Robert and Eliza Taylor named William Carol married Martha Jane White. This is not true and the children listed are Martha Jane's with the other William Carol, son of Vincent Taylor and Mary Puckett. Researchers are getting these two mixed up. I hope some of them will see this post and change their web sites to reflect the truth. I could not find a contact for Alf Poplin Taylor. Maybe someone who knows him can show him this post.

237 - - - My Taylor family descends from John, b. @1790, NC. Md. Nancy Burkhead, b. NC. John and Nancy had,Elisha, b.1810 & Whitson Burkhead Taylor, b. NC. The remaining children b. Tennessee; James, Jeremiah M.(my 2nd greatgrandfather), and Elizabeth and Nancy. John may have gone ahead to Morgan co, Missouri with sons; Elisha, Whitson and Jeremiah, but he d. there in 1837. In his probate records there is only a reference to the 3 sons, saying Jeremiah was "orphaned" child, age 14. Nancy was not mentioned. I do not know what happened to Nancy B.Taylor or the younger children. I have Elisha's, Whitson's, and Jeremiah's family info,(MO and Ark), but would like any ideas or info. on Nancy. She may have been too ill to travel with the younger children and stayed with her family of Burkheads, but has not been found on the census records there. This Family of Taylors originally settled in Tyrell co., NC and later moved to Granville....or boundaries changed...and rumor has it that John's father was Thomas, whose father was Richard III.

236 - - - I am looking for the ancestors and descendants of David Taylor, born approximately 1798, in North Carolina. He owned a plantation there and was alive at least until the 1840s.

235 - - - I have been able to trace my Taylor family back to the late 1780s in Burke Co., GA, where William and Joshua are listed on the tax records. They moved to Washington Co., GA by 1790, when my ggg-grandfather, Andrew Taylor, was born. He had two brothers that I know of, Richard and Thomas, and two sons, Joshua and William Thomas. They lived at various times in Laurens Co. and Thomas Co., GA, then moved to FL in the early 1820's when the Spanish ceded FL to the U.S. Several of them were early Methodist Circuit Riders, and are listed as Pioneers of FL. Family legend has it that they came to GA from VA, but I am still seeking the VA connection. A cousin of mine has joined the DNA project in hopes of finding that connection, and if anyone has any information on this line, please contact me.

234 - - - Looking for names of Brothers of President Zachery Taylor. My mother-in-law was Lillian Mae Taylor Vincent of Louisville Ky.

232 - - - Seeking help with the family of George Washington Taylor, born abt. 183 in Arkansas and died 1956 in Rusk County, Texas. He was married to Mary L. Ella. Children were Edgar, Maggie, Lula, Ruthy, Linnie and Pearl. By 1923 in Rusk Co., TX, George was married to Julia Lafitte (not known if that is her maiden name since she was married before marrying George), Julia and George were married. They had several children, the oldest being George B. Taylor. The earliest finding of George Washington Taylor is in Hunt County, TX in 1900. I am not able to determine his parentage because there are so many Taylors named George Washington. Any help with this family would be greatly appreciated.
