QRYTEXT: Looking for any information on HIRAM TAYLOR. B: circa, 1830-33 Born in Edgefield District, South Carolina Hiram had a brother David B. Taylor, which is the line my husband descends from. The information we have on Hiram and David is: Whe David was 12, and Hiram was 14, they ran away from home. Their father, John W., at the age of 66 years had decided to marry a younger woman of about 33 years. The two brothers didn't like their new mother, so they left home to explore the new frontier. Somewhere as they made their way West across the United States, the two young brothers parted company. David settled in Searcy Co, Arkansas. Brother Hiram traveled on west to near WHITESBORO, TEXAS. The last contact with Hiram was made in 1892. Hiram has not been heard from since that time. Looking at the map of Texas, Whitesboro appears to be in Cooke County. David only listed his father's name as John W. Taylor in his military records of the Civil War. We are hoping to find Hiram Taylor and see if any of his records can help us trace the parents of these two young men. (Thus, our search takes us to Cooke Co, TX.) Any help and/or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

A. Brown, or, in other words they swapped places. W. A. Brown lived at Horn Hill at that time; so Nelson moved to Horn Hill. Just before he moved Lydia, his daughter, married Mort Magee, and about the year 1860 his son, Fountain, died, and then about the year 1862 his second wife died. That just left him with one child, Lydia and three of her children, for she was a widow. Mort Magee went in the army and died up in Arkansas about the time the war closed. Lydia married a man by the name of McClellan who lived in Cook county......". We knew Mortimer married in Marysville and visited the cemetery there last fall, not knowing at that time his mother's name and that she might be there also; would have been looking for McGee, not knowing about the 2nd marriage. Does anyone know anything about Lydia (or Lidia as we found in another source) Nelson McGee McClellan? This marriage would have been after 1862 as this was the year Mortimer was born.
