I have to post again. I'll remove this when my time is up. I thought in three months time I could find my Great Grandfathe Sidney Ira Taylor's family. I know his married family but not the one he came from. I know he and his father both were born in Mississippi. I have twice thought I had it but both times have proven wrong. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. Family stories have him leaving a plantation somewhere in the South. Serving in the Civil War on the Condederate side. Getting Malaria while in the war and dieing in Shreveport in 1871. He has to have family somewhere. thanks for any suggestions. A war record I got on 2fold was for S. Taylor and I now think I have found that man and his family but he had no brothers. I was hoping Sidney was his. Thanks.
