Margaret Josephine SAUNDERS (b abt 1779 NC) married Robert A TAYLOR (b abt 1777) of Chowan OR FRANKLIN County North Carolina- in Brunswick county VA on 12 Feb 1810. I believe Roberts parents to be Richard Taylor & Mary Holmes. Children of Margaret and Robert born in Chowan OR FRANKLIN county unless otherwise stated

2. Eugenia m Dr Hester of New Orleans
3. Samuella m Mr Cohn merchant of New Orleans
9. Matilda (1816 Courtland) married Isaac GLIDEWELL
10. Margaret Josephine Saunders Taylor (b 1817 Courtland died 29 Jul 1879)
married Junius A BYNUM (b1814 NC? d 20 may 1853 in Courtland AL) on 13 Mar 1837. I read somewhere that Margaret wrote poetry under the penname of Dixie.
1. Junius J never returned from the war (born 29 sep 1843)
2. Margaret Josephine Saunders Taylor Bynum (Born 9 nov 1848 died 5 Jan 1864 age 73)
married Philip POINTER (died 8 jul 1886)
3. Bert (born 9 Jan 1846)
4. Laura Matilda (born 17 dec 1853) married William A McDonald
I can only suppose that the first Mary Elizabeth, Matilda and Josephine died young and the second daughters of those names were named after them.

The R A Taylor family moved to Shelby County Alabama in the 1820's

It is believed that Mary Holmes Taylor Jones - husband Willis Jones - was a sister to Robert A Taylor. The Jones moved to Shelby County AL in 1820's and then to Talladega Co AL. Their parents were Richard Taylor (land owner and veteran of the American Revolution and the War of 1812 - may have been a major in the 11th regiment of va) - think their mother was Anna Holmes. Related families Holmes, Fox, Gholson, Jones, Hightower

Any information on these families or allied families would be appreciated
