I am looking for information regarding Jacob Caylor born 1839-1840 possibly Tennessee. Married Lucinda Mounce(Mounts) in 1860. Eventually moved to Kansas. I am specifically looking for descendants living today. Thank you.

These are the CAYLOR records I find in the material I have available. I don't know if they will help you find living descendants, though, but I found a number of CAYLOR listings for Kansas in WhitePages.com on the internet.

Jacob obtained a US Land Patent for original land in section 33, T33S, R3W (Caldwell Twp.), recorded in the Register of Deeds office at the Sumner Co. courthouse in receipt book C, page 245 on 3/8/1878 and patent book 6, page 551 on 5/6/1879.

The Caldwell Cemetery book has these listings:
CAYLOR, Jacob, 29 Mar 1840 - 5 Oct 1906, Husband, Block 3, Lot 86, Space 1
CAYLOR, Lucinda E, 7 Jan 1833 - 17 Sep 1912, Wife, Block 3, Lot 86, Space 3
CAYLOR, Sarah (Sharp) (91 yrs) - 11 May 1955, (unmarked) Block 3, Lot 86, Space 4
CAYLOR, William M, (16 y, 9m, 11d) 3 Oct 1886, Son, Block 3, Lot 86, Space 5

An old ledger kept by the county health department before Kansas began requiring birth and death certificates in 1911 provides this death record:
CAYLOR, Jacob, 66, male, married, died of cancer, occupation farmer, died in Hunnewell Oct 6 (this may have been the date the Dr. reported it) 1906, Father Jacob Caylor, father's birthplace Germany, Mother Nancy Chitwood.

This is from the index of funerals for the Frank Funeral Home in Wellington:
CAYLOR, Ronald died Oct. 24, 1960, Rural Sumner Co Book 10, Funeral #4809. A copy of this record may be obtained from the Sumner Co. Historical and Genealogical Society, e-mail schgs@sutv.com.

Marriage records (indexed through November 1906) and on file at the Sumner Co. courthouse:
Caylor, Andy to Criger, Sarah M., November 22, 1882, Book B, Page 185
Caylor, Elizabeth to Ball, Robert F, January 29, 1884, Book B, Page 308
Caylor, Sarah E to Sharp, J.E., July 12, 1880 Book A, Page 328

Hope this helps.

Thank you very much! Yes, this is very useful as it proves that I am on the right track. Nancy Chitwood, Jacob's mother, was my gg-grandmother. Although I had the names of his children, I did not know who they married, so now I have for leads to check. Thank you again.

Nancy Chitwood, b 27 Nov 1803 TN, d 1875 (dau of Pleasant Chitwood and Sarah Cowan), m(1) 18 Nov 1824, Charles McClung, b 1802, d 1834 Monroe Co, IN, m(2) Whitley Co, KY, Jacob Caylor, b 1796 VA, d 20 June 1852 Wayne Co, KY, m(3) 28 Jan 1861, Jacob Bell, b 1816 KY.

According to http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.com/~rootsr/Mc-Wm-Sevr.h... , Jacob Caylor was administrator of Nancy Chitwood’s first husband, Charles McClung’s estate in 1834 Monroe Co, IN. She married Jacob Caylor in Whitley Co, KY:
“CHARLES McCLUNG, Son of William and Eleanor McClung. He married Nancy Chitwood, daughter of Pleasant Chitwood. Charles was listed as born in 1802 and Nancy Chitwood born in 1803. The Pleasant Chitwood Bible shows they were married Nov. 18 1824. Charles died in 1834 and his estate was probated in Monroe County. After Charles McClung died in 1834 in Monroe County, his wife Nancy Chitwood McClung eventually returned to the same area as where her parents Pleasant Chitwoods lived. She eventually married Jacob Caylor who had been appointed administrator of Charles' estate in Monroe County along with Nancy. He was also appointed guardian of her two boys but he was never appointed guardian of her daughter Sarah McClung. Hugh McClung was appointed guardian of Sarah McClung and Charles estate file contains a copy of Hugh's final settlement with her on her fathers estate after she married Andrew Elswick in 1843. Nancy Chitwood McClung married Jacob Caylor in Whitley County Kentucky .... Whitley County was originally part of Pulaski County KY. Daughter Sarah married Andrew Elswick, eventually migrated to Kansas and died in Oklahoma at the home of one of her daughters. She is buried by her husband in Perry, Kansas. “

Children of Nancy Chitwood and Charles McClung include:
1 - Hiram McClung
2 - Daniel McClung, b 1827 TN
3 - Sarah McClung, b 25 Sept 1828 IN, d 1910 KS, m. 1842, Andrew Elswick
(??? one source shows other children Hugh, Andrew, Charles, William and Nathaniel McClung, but no dates of birth. They would have had to have been born between 1824 and 1834.)
