Generation No. 1

1.







William TAYLOR was born 1771 in Nash Co, NC, and died 28 MAR 1842 in Trenton, Todd Co., KY.

He married Hannah DUDLEY about 1795 in Nash Co. NC. She was born 27 MAY 1777 in North Carolina, and died 13 APR 1861 in Houston Co., TX. Hannah Taylor died at the home of her son Wright Benefield Taylor near the Reynard Community, Grapeland, Houston Co., TX. Unknown if she had moved from Henderson Co., TX or was just visiting when she died. She is buried in an unmarked grave in what is known as the Taylor Cemetery, Reynard Community, Grapeland, TX near what was the Wright B. Taylor home.
 

There are two possibilities for Hannah Taylor on the 1850 Census.  Most probably the Todd Co., KY census is correct since she is living next door to her son Wright B. Taylor on that census.
