†† A reunion of the descendants of the late Mr. and Mrs. William T. Taylor, former residents of the Monoville section of Smith County, was held recently at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Sam E. Taylor near Lafayette. Eighty-five persons were present, including the six sons and the two daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Taylor. All the children of this very worthy couple are still living and were present for the reunion. They are: Sam Taylor, of Lafayette; Lester Taylor, of Orville, Ala.; Bob and John Taylor, both of Monoville, Tenn.; Tom Taylor, of Bethpage; Drury Taylor, of Batavia, Ohio; Mrs. Ethel Bullard, of Gallatin; and Mrs. Herlin Dillehay, of Route one, Carthage. The oldest is Lester Taylor, 70, and the youngest is Drury, 59.


†† Twenty-three grandchildren were in attendance, as well as other descendants of Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Taylor. A number of Gamaliel, Kentucky, relatives were also in attendance and enjoyed the big dinner brought to the Sam Taylor home by the entire group. Plans are being made to have another reunion next year, but the location has not been decided.
