Stewart AT thewritewing@yahoo.com this was copy from the database of C STEWARTREF.: "GENERATIONS MUSICK, TAYLOR, AND ALLIED FAMILIES" by Gloria M. Musick Taylor, Nicholls, GA 1984.TAYLOR, William 1775 - ? Appling Co. , GA.William Taylor, son of Henry Taylor the Revolutionary Soldier, was born probably in Burke County, Georgia, as his father was living there during this time, except for the few years they lived in the Barwell District in South Carolina, at thecommencement of the Revolution. William was born in 1775. The name of his wife is not known.William's name was not found in the 1830 census index for Georgia, but his son James was found. The microfilm of the census revealed that James lived in the same general area as William. Jesse Moody's name apperars just above William's in the 1820index, and at the top of the page in 1830. There are some problems with these entries. The ages of the children in the 1830 entry do not match those in Huxford's book. These may be explained in part by the fact he drew those ages from the 1850census. The 1850 census is probably closer to the right mark. In absence of written records, peoples memories can get confused after 20 years or more. There is also a problem with the entry for William in that the oldest males listed are ine ageof 16 and 25. This is difficult to explain, possibly William had already died and James, his son, who was one of the olders sons, was living in the same house as was his father.Possibly the land and probate records could clarify this problem, unfortunately, I did not pursue these leads at this time. In any event, the census returns support Huxford's conclusions in general, if not in every particular.However, this is how the family of William Taylor was listed in the 1830 Appling County Census Index, page 10.Head of Family William TaylorFree White Males 16 - 26 1Free White Males Under 10 2Free White Females 16 - 26 1Foreigners Not Naturalized 1 ( It is evident this person is not a slave, or they would be listed as such.)As I stated, I do not know if William had just died when the census were taken, and the above family is actually the family of James J. Taylor, his son. If William died at this time he was about 55 years of age, and the ' not naturalixed ' citizencould have been his wife living in her sons household, or the son living in her house.Records show that William Taylor and his family were the only Taylor's listed in the first census of Appling County taken in 1820. We can rest assured that the Taylor Town Community derived its' name from this family. Little is known at this timeconcerning William, and we may never learn anymore. It is believed that both he and his wife are buried in unmarked graves in some unknown location. At one time it was rumored that members of the Taylor family and other families in the Camp Groundarea were buried in an old unmarked cemetery in the woods near the end of what was once known as the Delp Ann Bridge., (named for Aunt Delphia Lassiter) as she lived near there. The bridge is located between the present farms of Amos Thomas andMrs. Pate Stewart, about 1/2 mile from Camp Ground Church.Some claim that this could have been an Indian burying ground. At any rate, I have visited many small family cemeteries located in woods and fields, but found no marker for William Taylor.Mr. and Mrs. Taylor had the following childern.1. John b. 1795, married Matilda Gray2. Mary (Pollie) b. 1801, married Wilson Tanner son of John and Mary (Douglas) Tanner.3. James J. "Black Jim" b. 1803, married Lydia Tanner, daughter of John and Mary (Douglas) Tanner.4. Burrell b. 1815, married Vicy Prescott.All the above children were born in Montgomery County, Georgia. huxford's book.
