In the 1920s there was a Taylor Family Association that published two "booklets" on genealogy and news/history of the Taylor family (Volume I 1924-1926, Volume II 1927-1929). The association apparently disbanded as there were no further publications. A small group of Taylor cousins and friends would like to start a new Taylor Association. We are looking for volunteers to help establish this new Taylor Association. If you would be willing to help, please email me. In the subject line of the email please type Descendants of James Taylor I so that I do not delete the email without reading it.
I am also putting together a contact list of those persons interested in joining the association once it is up and running. Please email me if you would like your name on this list. And please inform any family members who you think would be interested in helping or joining about the new Taylor Association.
The background picture is the "Hare Forest" Cemetery where James Taylor I is supposedly buried, and on the rise behind it was the location of his plantation home. The graves were marked with Juniperus virginiana (eastern redcedar) trees. [See The Cemeteries of Caroline County: Private Cemeteries (Volume III) by Herbert R. Collins] All pictures on this website were taken my me, Steve Taylor, during my trip to VA & KY in Jul 2009.
If you email me please type Descendants of James I in the subject line of the email.

In this space I will post an article about Taylor family history and other information connected to the Taylor family. The posting will change periodically and the old postings will be linked to this site. The first posting is the short biography of James I (above). It will remain in it's current place as part of the first page of this website. FEEL FREE TO SUBMIT AN ARTICLE FOR THIS SPACE.
www.ourfamtree.org -- I have found a very good site to post genealogy (website by Ray Gurganus). I like it because there is only one family tree (instead of everyone having their own individual tree). I have been entering Taylor genealogy there for the past year along with information and pictures. Please visit www.ourfamtree.org and check it out. (This link will take you to James Taylor I at ourfamtree.org--use your back button to return to this site.)
