Turns out that a 2great grandniece of Robert and Rebecca Taylor nee Caylor recalled her grandfather Rev Jesse Taylor telling her in the 1930s that his grandparents, Robert and Rebecca Taylor were killed by Indians in Kansas in 1863. Then I find a researcher on FamilySearch, Susan Houston of Salina, KS found records related to their demise in Jay Co: (1) a probate record for them dated 1863, and (2) a Guardians Report regarding John Hoppes Jr caring for their kids from 1863 into the 1870s as noted in a Court of Common Pleas record.
I would really like copies of these documents related to Robert and Rebecca. Anybody with a contact in Jay Co who can help me? LRAYVICK@cox.net
