Hey Emily,

My research suggests that the Cloer name comes from Germany. In the early 1700s a german colony came to settle in parts of Virginia from Germany. Over the years the family has migrated down into North Carolina and Tennessee. Hope that helps.

During the late 1800s it was not uncommon for families to name their children after popular members of government. My records have a host of individuals named after George Washington Thomas Jefferson. It is interesting that your great grandfather was named after our 10th president, Zachary Taylor. Zachary Taylor was a popular president even though he is not considered the strongest. I will look at my records. Thanks for the information.

Best Regards,
Richard Cloer
