John Daniel Taylor, Sr. has an unknown DOB but died about 1850. He had three children, Martha Taylor DOB 1834, John Daniel, JR. DOB 1836, and Caroline/Carolyn DOB 1838. The three children were orphaned about 1850 when both parents died. Martha Taylor married a Calvin Savage DOB 1832. John Daniel Taylor, Jr. moved to Georgia before the Civil War. The Georgia branch of the Taylors reconnected with the NC branch earlier this year on these boards. No one knows what became of Caroline/Carolyn except she married a Ventis. Martha and Calvin Savage's oldest dayghter was Mary Della Savage DOB 1857 who married into another branch of the NC Taylors. Let me know if you need more info or if we have any matches. God Bless.
