Dear Kristine,
The vast majority of people with a Taft ancestor are related to WHT, although most only distantly. You will have to provide some information on your Taft ancestry in order to figure out how you may be related.

You are saying that one of your grandmothers, Charlotte Louise Melon, m. a Taft and the other, Gladys, d. ca. 1988 in Mass. as a Taft. In other words, both of your grandmothers m. Tafts!?
I find a Gladys Taft who died in Worcester Co., Mass. in 1988 (b. 29 Jul 1892). I can look up her death record next week to see who was her husband.
If you have, or can obtain, further bits and pieces, contact me at NeilBTodd@cs.com

Kristine,
What is your father's name? Was he b. in Massachusetts? When was he born? I gather you do not know the name of your Taft grandfather as you have not mentioned him. I can sort out any of this that took place in Massachusetts next week when I visit the Department of Health in Boston.

Taft ancestry

Dear Kristine,
Gladys Maude Mildred (Watts) Taft was the widow of Richard Lewis Taft. They were married in 1916 at Winchendon, Massachusetts. Richard Lewis Taft was b. at Weston, Vt., the son of Charles E. Taft. I think this Charles E. Taft, b. Apr. 1851, was the son of Louis Napoleon Taft (b. 1824). This is a so-called Robert[2] line and not at all closely related to WHT. I have some transcriptions if you are interested. Contact me by e-mail (NeilBTodd@cs.com) if you have further questions. If you want further information on the ancestral line, contact Mr. Richard T. Messinger (rtaftm@capecod.net) who is the Taft Family Association historian.
