Good grief, do you know how many Benjamin Taylors there are? Especially in Rhode Island! I've been doing my family tree for over 30 years, including Taylors, and it isn't easy. The first thing to do is forget about what other trees you've seen. Trace your own tree. Start with family members with the last name you're tracing, see if you can find their birth records, marriage records, etc. Then go to census records, and look up people with the name you're looking for in the city and state they lived in. When you find them as ccildren, then check 20 years later, or so to find THEIR families, and then check 20 years later to find the children with THEIR families. Maybe if you do it that way, you'll find the line that connects to yours. And don't worry if the wife's name is different from the one you have. The mortality rate was high back then, and it's entirely possible your ancestor was married several times. Good luck, and contact me if you hit a snag!!
