I have been working on my husband's family tree for him and his cousin for several years now and have run into several dead-ends and confusion. The above post by Clair Hadley has been very valuable. What I have so far, going from furthest to recent is ?Richard Taylor b. circa 1732??, James Taylor 1769-1847, James Taylor 1794-1860, James Monroe Taylor 1820-1880, Lucy Taylor Pendleton 1859-1951, Martha Ann Pendleton Moss 1894-1991, Jessie Lee Moss Staughton 1922-2013 and Harry Lee Staughton (my husband). This family was from Buckingham, Virginia.
If anyone can help with this line I'd very much appreciate it.
