Dear Dawn and Geri,
There are so many anomalies in the May and Taylor stories here that I decided to do some more research on it. And, as usually happens, the info I am finding just makes it that much murkier! Evidently my Alex Taylor got around all over W .NC,E TN, and N GA or there are several Alex Taylors and I may need your help to sort them out. I have found good documentation for Mary Jane May Taylor from 1900 to 1928, but nothing before that except the 1867 marriage in Murphy to Alex. I"m going to the DAR this weekend to look for county records in GA. Dawn, the Alex and Mary you found in Wise, VA are not mine. Geri, I hope you can send me some Taylor info because evidently you can't sling a cat around here without hitting one. BTW, are you related to Parmenas and Leroy Taylor?
