This morning Joseph Taylor died at his home at Farr West, of general debility, at the advanced age of 75 years. He was a pioneer in every sense of the word. He had lived in Weber county for fifty years and was a member of the old Mormon Battalion. He leaves many relatives to mourn his loss, among whom is Bishop Greene Taylor, who is a brother. His life was known to all. He had friends by the score, but he had passed his three score years and ten and he is now numbered among those who have crossed the river.

  1. I hoping for some clarification about your information on John Taylor (born 1812). In your sketch you mentioned that he joined the reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1863. But, then later in the story that he was a mormon his entire life (from age 8). The "reorganized" church is a different church than the mormon faith so I just wondered which church he was a member of? Thanks for the insight. I enjoyed all the bios.

    1. In answer to your question: originally, at age 8, John was a member of the LDS church and then, in 1863, became a member of the RLDS.

      The information on the blog was cut and pasted from a Biography I found online, so the error is one the earlier publishers made. However, thanks to you, I will add a note in the text explaining the fact so others won’t be confused.

      Glad you enjoy the information,

      Michelle
