JOHN2 TAYLOR (WILLIAM1) was born Abt. 1745. He married MARY LEWIS Bet. 1655 - 1768, daughter of GIDEON LEWIS.

Notes for JOHN TAYLOR:

Tradition: Mrs Lola Myers of West Jefferson, NC was told that John Taylor was born in England about 1745, the son of William Taylor, and came to America around 1760 with either five or seven brothers. The wife of John had the given name Mary, as indicated by Grayson Co, Va Deed Book 4, Page 45.

Tradition: Mary may have been a Lewis, dau of Gideon Lewis. Some sources stated that she was a "red-headed Irish woman". John and Mary were married between 1765 and 1768. Mary died in Ashe County NC in 1801. She was living in Grayson County, Virginia in 1830 and was over 80 years of age. John died in July 1807. He left a will which was probated in the August term of the Ashe County Court, but never recorded.

It appears that their son, William, was the first born child and likely named for his grandfather. William first appeared on the Montgomery Co tax list with his father in 1789. Since he was not on the 1788 tax list (as his father was), he likely turned 21, the taxable age, in 1789. This would eatablish his birth year as 1768 and imply that his parents were married before that. John first appeared on the tax lists of Mont. Co,Va in 1781 as a member of Capt. Enoc Oaborn's Co. On this same list was Nathan Taylor, listed as "not fit". It is likely that this Nathan was a close relative of John, possibly a brother, but un-proven at this time.

2. STEPHEN3 TAYLOR (JOHN2, WILLIAM1) He married SARAH ROARK, daughter of CHARLES ROARK and ABAGAIL.

Notes for STEPHEN TAYLOR: Source: Troy Taylor, Rt 1, Box 198-E, Bristol, TN 37621. Tradition, preserved in the South family of Ashe and Watauga Counties in NC, is that the wife of Stephen was Sarah Roark, a daughter of Charles Roark and his wife Abagail, who according to tradition, was a Cherokee Indian. Stephen Taylor, son of John and Mary Taylor , were probably married in 1792 as he first paid tax in 1793 later, Allegheney County, NC in 1858. This was the same year his first child, John Lewis Taylor, was born It is interesting to note that Stephen and Sarah named a son, Charles, and a daughter, Abagail. Charles Roark was a son of Timothy and Rachel Roark. Timothy left a will in Grayson County, Virginia, probated in 1811, which named several children, including Charles. Stephen Taylor Sr. died in late 1849 or early 1850, from injuries received in a logging accident, either in Johnson County TN or Watauga County NC according to tradition. His widow, Sarah Roark Taylor was 75 years of age and living with her daughter and son-in-law, Eli and Mary South, in Watanga CO, NC when the 1850 census was taken. She lived the balance of her life at the base of "Snake" mountain in Watauga County, NC. She apparently died before the census of 1860. During these years, Stephen and Sarah became parents of several children as follows:

1. John Lewis Taylor, born 9 June 1793 in Wilkes Co, NC (the area is now Allegheny Co, NC, near Twin Oaks), and died in Washington Co, VA on 2 Sep 1837. Dates are from his tombstone in the Worley Cemetery on the south side of the North Fork Holston River Road about eight miles west of Saltville. His wife was called Polly "Fairchild".

2. Unknown Taylor, born ca 1797, probably the one living with Stephen and listed as "idiotic" when Stephen applied for assistance from the Washington Co VA Board of Overseers of the Poor. He may have died around 1843-44, as Stephen requested no further assistance after time.

3. Charles Taylor, born ca 1798 (per Russell Co, VA 1850 census) died 24 July 1858 in Roane County VA (no WV) per Roane Co death Register. Charles Married Anna Frances Ham, daughter of Thomas Ham and Eliza_____, probably of Ashe Co, NC or Grayson Co, VA.

4. Ann Morgan Taylor, birth and death dates unknown. Mentioned in Carter Co, TN records as daughter of Stephen Taylor (Afflicted in some manner) around 1830.

5. Phoebe Taylor, born in Grayson Co, VA in 1800, died in Washington Co, VA 4 Aug 1894 per Washington Co VA death register. She married William Eastridge, (1800 Granville Co, NC - 188_ Washington Co, VA) son of Henry and Elizabeth Floyd Phoebe and William are reported by family descendants to be buried in the extreme southwest corner of the Tumbling Creek Primitive Baptist Church Cemetery in unmarked graves. Their daughter, Abigail, is said to be buried beside them also in an unmarked grave.

6. Mary Taylor, born ca 1802 in Grayson Co, VA, died possibly after 1887 in Watauga Co, NC (dates from Elizabeth South Storie, a descendant and South researcher of Boone, NC. Mary married Eli South, born ca 1799/1800, died after 1860 in Watauga Co, NC. They were married in Ashe Co, NC, 1821, per Ashe Co marriage records. They were the parents of 11 children.

7. Sarah Taylor, born ca 1808 in Ashe Co, NC, married Ephriam Eastridge on October 1830 in Carter CO, TN with John L. Taylor, security. Ephriam was likely a brother of William Eastridge who married Sarah's sister Phoebe. Ephriam was born ca 1802 in NC and died in Washington CO, VA in October 1849 from "consumption" (TB). Source: 1850 Washington Co, VA mortality schedule. They were parents of seven children: Priscilla, born ca 1840; John, born ca 1843; Melinda, born ca 1846; Pheby, born ca 1847.

8. Stephen Taylor, Jr. born ca 1809 in Ashe Co, NC, died November 1839 in Russell Co, VA. Married Martha "Patsy" Eastridge, born ca 1811, daughter of Henry and Elizabeth (Floyd) Eastridge, of Ashe Co, NC, and sister to William Eastridge. Stephen died from pneumonia, which developed after a duck-hunting trip on the Clinch River in Russell Co, VA. They were parents of three children, Anna, born ca 1825 in Ashe Co, NC; Alvin, born ca 1830 in Carter Co, TN; and Eli, born ca 1833, Johnson Co, TN.

10. Abigail Taylor, born ca 1811 in Ashe Co, NC married Brittain Stewart in Carter Co, TN on 31 Oct 1829 (with here brother John Taylor as security). They lived in what is now Johnson Co, TN and were parents of nine children.

11. Simeon Taylor, born ca 1818, probably in Ashe Co, NC, died after 1850, probably in Watauga Co, NC. He married Kizziah South, born 1 Oct 1817, a sister to Eli South. They were parents of three children, James, born ca 1838; Sarah, born ca 1844, and Drucilla, born CA 1849. After the death of Simeon, Kizziah married Lemuel Wilson, a widower, by whom she had a daughter, who later married ____ Baird. This daughter was killed near Grandfather Mountain, when the horses pulling the wagon driven by her, bolted and caused the wagon to be wrecked. She had taken her children to pick blueberries.

Stephen Taylor paid taxes in Wilkes County, NC from 1793 thru 1795 (Note: Wilkes Co was formed from Ashe Co in was 1799). He probably lived there in 1796, as they tax records are mission that year. In 1797, he and his family had moved to Grayson County, VA, near or at the NC line. He paid taxes in Grayson County through 1815, then moved to Ashe County NC where they remained until about 1824.

About 1824, Stephen and his family, including married sons John L. and Charles, moved to Carter County, TN, on Roan Creek. This is now part of Johnson County TN, near Mountain City. Here they received land grants of 50 acres each, for living on the land and farming it for a minimum of two years.

From Carter County TN, Land Entry Book A, entry Number 60, page 18 comes the following information:

It lying and being on the Forger Creek and adjoining the land said Taylor now lives on. Beginning up both sides of the creek including the Mill seat this 16th of August 1826. Jarrett Arrendcell, locator.

Note: Roan Creek is the main stream Forge Creek empties into, a short distance from the North Carolina line between Mountain City, and Trade, Tennessee. Stephen Taylor Jr. was still a teenager at the time, so Stephen Taylor Sr. had to be the locator of the above 50 acres. Stephen Jr. was married around 1826

Source: Carter County Deed Book "C" dated March 14, 1832, John L. Taylor sold 50 acres on Forge Creek (also called Roan Creek (t.t)) to William Wilson - land adjoins Wilson and is adjacent to where John L. Taylor now lives. Witnesses: William Eastridge, Stephen Taylor, Charles Taylor

Stephen Taylor is found on the tax list for Wilkes Co, NC for the first time in 1793, the year of the birth of his son, John Lewis Taylor. This part of Wilkes Co. became Ashe Co in 1799, and later, Allegheny County, NC in 1858. By 1824, several men in the Taylor family had moved westward into extreme East TN. From the Carter Co.,TN Land Entry Book A, Page 18, comes the following:

State of TN,Carter Co, John Taylor lacates and enters as an occupent preference 50 acres of land in said county on or near the middle fork of Roans Creek including cabin built by said Taylor. 28 June, 1824 From the same source and date: Page 19: A similar entry for Charles Taylor (brother to John L. Taylor). Then Page 20: A similar entry, for Stephen Taylor (Father of John L. and Charles) Land Entry Book A, entry # 933...John Taylor claimed an additional 50 acres, adjoining " the land he now lives on ", dated Aug. 16, 1826. Source: Carter Couny Deed Book "C": March 14, 1832, John L. Taylor sold 50 acres on Forge Creek (also called Roan Creek (t.t.) ) to William Wilson-land adjoins Wilson and and is adjacent to where John L. Taylor now lives. Witnesses: William Eastridge, Stephen Taylor, Charles Taylor.

Some time between 1832 and 1837, all of the above mentioned Taylors and William Eastridge moved to Washington Co, VA, where John L. died in in 1837 at the age of 44. The 1830 Census for Carter Co, TN shows John Taylor to have the following family: one male under 5, two males 5 to 10, and himself, 30 to 40 years of age. Females were: one between 5 and 10, two between 10 and 15. The 1840 Washington Co, VA Census shows: ( next to Andrew Taylor) head of household, Polly Taylor, age 40 to 50, one female less than 5, and one female, 5 to 10. Males: one, age 5 to 10, and two, 10 to 15 years old. The last record found of Polly Taylor and her family, excluding Andrew, was a sale of her land to Robert Smith in Nov 1846. Apparently, she and her unmarried children moved away from Southwest VA, as census records for all surrounding counties fail to show Polly Taylor or her children.

Stephen Taylor seems to have died during the winter of 1849-1950, based on court order for the appraisal of his property in Washington Co, VA. Sarah wife of Stephen was living in Watauga Co, NC with her brother, Eli South.

Also in the Eli South household was her son Simeon Taylor and his wife Kissiah. Simon was involved in a logging accident that killed his father Stephen. After the accident, Simeon went insane.

Sara lived out the balance of her life in a log cabin at the base of Snake Mountain, Watauga Co, NC. Sarah Roark Taylor, 75 on the 1850 census, is not found in the 1860 census, apparently having died duirng this period.
