Hello, Mendy,

I may be able to help you and at the same time give you a "warning" with regard to Hoot Owl TAYLOR.

This past summer I received a mysterious e-mail from a Hoot Owl TAYLOR purporting to have all sorts of secret and interesting information for me on my line of TAYLORS. He referenced little tidbits of information which one might think only a close family member might know. It had to do with a shooting, a near-hanging, etc. The letter said I should contact the Library at Wayne Co. and ask for this Hoot Owl to obtain additional information. My first thought was that he must "want something" but what . . . ?

I forwarded that e-mail on to a couple of my family "cousins" . The big surprise was that one of the cousins had received a VERY similiar type of proposal perhaps 7 or 8 years earlier and in this correspondence, ol' Hoot Owl wanted a donation and set forth what he charged and made statements like "I can fill the entire top of your desk" with family history information.

We did not respond to his offer. In fact, I figured out that he probably had taken the Barbourville Advocate and clipped out articles over the years in the "Genealogy Column" that appeared in this newspaper. Many times there were articles with regard to my TAYLOR family. Hoot Owl's tidbits of information were already known to me but were the SAME types of information which appeared in this column.

I am going to forward directly to you a few of the pieces of correspondence which went on. My understanding is that the name, Hoot Owl TAYLOR , is one passed down through generations and that there have been several of them. Enough of my warnings. I will e-mail you privately.
