Micheal: The information I have states that Buck Taylor's parents were John Taylor and Nancy Reilly from the Taos region of Texas (now New Mexico). Buck died in Pennsylvania of tuberculosis. If you know his wifes name, I'd appreicate you passing that back to me. She seems to have no name. Oh, and Buck's birth date is October 15, 1857.
I have read that his father was a member of the Texas Cavalry at the beginning ofthe Civil War, but I cannot find him on any rolls.
