I am looking for historical information in Taylor, Idaho. Any information, photos or maps of the area would be appreciated. Many of my ancestors come from this area including: Sidney Lorenzo Hansen, DeVere Earl Hansen, George Harry Miller, Wilfrod Eugene Lords and Daniel James Lords.

Taylor is a community just south and east of Idaho Falls, or just south of Ammon, Idaho. It was settled by second-generation Utah pioneers in the 1880s. They homesteaded, cleared land, built canals, and were organized into an LDS branch by John W. Taylor. In 1886 they named the branch Taylor after John W. Taylor, who was an apostle and son of Church President John Taylor. As I am writing a history of Bonneville County, I have worked with Doyle Arave, who knows about Taylor families. The names you gave are of Taylor and Shelley (just north of Taylor). He said you may telephone him; he lives in Idaho Falls.
