  • Notes 
    • Henry Taylor served in the Georgia Line in the Revolutionary War as a private. At the commencement of the Revolution Henry Taylor's family refugeed to South Carolina where they lived in the Barnwell District for a few years, then returning to Burke County.

      He was granted 287.5 acres of bounty-land by the State of Georgia in 1785, the land being laid in Washington County. Henry deeded his land to his son, John Taylor who sold it on December 28, 1798 to John Jones.

      Henry was granted other lands from the State and lived on some until his death around 1820. He participated in the first Georgia land lottery in 1805 and drew a lot in Wilkinson County.

      Authority for war service: Rev. George G. Smith's, "The Story of Georgia" in listing Georgia Revolutionary soldiers states that Henry Taylor was a private in the Georgia Line.

      Knight's, "Georgia's Roster of the Revolution" shows he was granted the bounty-land referred to, thus verifying the fact.

      TAYLOR, Henry 1750 - 1820 Montgomery, Georgia
      Henry, son of William Taylor, the Colonial Settler, we assume, was born about 1750 in St. George Parish, (now Burke County,) Georgia. Henry Taylor was the Revolutionary War Ancestor of most of the large Taylor family in Appling and Bacon Counties, Georgia Henry's wife was Mary (Maiden name unknown.) She was born about 1755 in Georgia. They had about eight children; viz: The names of only six have been determined.

      1. Henry b. 1773, married Sarah _______ ?

      2. William b. 1775, married (name unknown.) According to the 1830 Appling Co., Census index for Georgia, William could have possibly married a foreigner or 'not naturalized' citizen of the United States. This could be difficult to prove, even if it were true. Records state there was such a person listed in William's household, or his son James J.'s household, as William may have been deceased at this time. It gives no indication gender or age of this person.

      3. John b. 1777, married Mary Barber in 1798, daughter of William.

      4. Winnifred b. 1789, married John R. Stone, Aug. 3, 1809.

      5. Hezekiah b. 1790, married Margaret Douglas, Feb. 6, 1812.

      6. Isaiah b. 1793, married Nancy Wheeler, June 6, 1812.

      (There is geat confusion in Bacon County, as to the kinship of James Tayor born in 1796, and James J. Taylor born in 1803. Some claim the two may have been brothers. This is not too likely since both lived to be quite old. Sometimes it was common to name two children the same name, but mainly if the oldest had died as a child. Both may have had James somewhere in their name, but not both called James. Both of these men are buried in Camp Ground. It could be possible that the James who married Elizabeth Yates was a son of the above Henry, thus, being James J.'s uncle.)
