Joseph Taylor 1726-1806 Nancy 1729

Note:  There have been several attempts to connect the Taylor family with the one that is related to President (of the USA)  Zachary Taylor.  We are not related.

There are Taylor's listed on the 1797 tax list for Kentucky - Joseph (my ancestor) ended up there.  Perhaps his brothers, Thomas, and John also moved to Kentucky.  The names  John, Thomas, and Joseph are listed on the taxes for that year.

John Taylor
Note:  in the book, Coneto Creek Taylors, it claims that John could be a son of Joseph and Nancy.  I believe common sense claims he is.  Not only did he own land on the Taylor property, his own will (which is below) was witnessed by William Best, who would have been his brother-in-law.
