Donna,

Thanks for your reply. It confirms other data I have in hand.

I'll see what I can dig up on him with the Bowie lead. There were so many Taylors running around the countryside that it never pays to make assumptions on kinship.

Do you have any information on the descendants other than what you cite in your note? I'm trying to chart the TAYLOR line though the current generation and have nothing that tells me of A.J.'s grandchildren and subsequent descendants.

Thanks for the response. It's nice to find kin.

Steve, you DO know that Lady Bird Johnson, widow of President Lyndon Baines Johnson, was born Claudia Taylor and was raised near Smithland at Karnak? Could you be connected with her?

Yep, I knew that. However, I haven't been able to make the link. Family legends have always been that Lady Bird was a cousin. I haven't exactly worked on that, but intend to get to it sooner or later. I don't think she particularly cares who claims kin to her. Back when LBJ was in office most of the family couldn't decide whether to claim her or act like she was from some other state's Karnack. Time changes things, though.

Thanks for the post!

Saw your post that referenced Thomas W. Taylor. My Thos was born in Gilmer, Upshur Co. in 1869 and wandered to Bowie Co in the 1870s. I do not have his parents or siblings but I do have the lineage since he got to Bowie Co. Might this be one in the same?

THX!!

I suspect that your Thomas Ward is related to the ones in Smithland. Three of Moses Ward Taylors sons came to TX as far as I know. Ward Taylor settled in Smithland, Job Taylor settled in Longview and Joseph Taylor settled in Harriosn County, some of his descendants went to Upshur co. I have very little information on Joseph Taylor. I am descended from Ward.

What I do have is Joseph Taylor was born 1796 in Edgefield dist. SC. He married Henrietta Matilda (don't know if that is a middle name or last name) He died in Harrison Co. 1872.

They had at least one child, Moses W. b. 1822 in GA. who died at Upshur Co. TX bet. 1880 and 1900. They had at least one child, Joseph W b. abt 1852 in Harrison Co. and died at Colman TX in 1918.

I suspect that your Thomas Ward came from the Moses W. who died in Upshur Co. You may check the census records and see who the rest of his children were and see who there children were.

Below is what I have on the Joseph Taylor line, which Donna Schultz referred to. You'll need to print it out or dump it into a file to get it lined back up. Note that there are quite a few people unaccounted for. However, if any of them appear to be familiar, just talk to me or Donna and we'll see where it all leads.
