Classification: Query
Surnames: Taylor, Wilkins, Houghton, Holloway, Barrett, Merriam, Adams, Hoyt, Loomis

Your John was the son of Holloway Taylor [1759 Shrewsbury, Massachusetts d. 1839 St Albans, Vermont] & Dinah Houghton. Col. Halloway Taylor, of Northboro, MA settled in St Albans about 1790. He donated land in 1792 to the town of St. Albans, which is now Taylor Park. He appears on the St Albans Grand list on Sept. 29, 1813 (also sons William & John Taylor). He was an active and influential man, and considerable of a wit and humorist. His piquant sayings were frequently quoted by the settlers.

Holloway's line:
John Taylor (1736 Marlborough MA -1800) & Jemima Holloway; John Taylor (1703 Marlborough- ?) & Martha
Eleazer Taylor (1684 Marlborugh MA d there 1734) & Lydia Barrett d/o John Barrett & Mary Pond
William Taylor (1647 ? - 1706 Marlborough MA) & Hannah Merriam

John's brother William Holloway Taylor was b. 1785 Northborough MA d. 1854 buried Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, married Hannah Adams, 5 children: Holloway, John B., William Adams, Frances and another daughter whose name I do not know.

John's sister Jemima Taylor (1788 Northborough MA - ) married Dr Julius Hoyt who died in St Albans VT in 1852. They had 3 children Julius Jr., Romeo and Frances. I'm not sure when Jemima Taylor Hoyt died but appears on the 1860 census at Springfield, MA age 72 living with daughter Frances and her husband Calvin Loomis and their family.

John & Miriam Wilkins had 6 children: Susan, Hannah, Asa (died Feb. 14, 1828 Fairfax, VT age 2 buried Mudgett Cemetery), Cynthia, (another son abt 1829 died young), & Sarah Ann.

Hope this helps. Wanda Alter
