Hello Janette,

Thank you for your reply.  I have been searching through Papers Past and I did see the two clips you sent about Thomas's death.  The first link below is tp two more clips, posted a year later by Annie and contain two sweet poems.  Also, thank you for the information on Florence's birth and the other children.  Do you know if these four are all of Thomas and Annie's children? 

You may already be aware of the book in the second link below.  Howevr, if not, on page 428 you will see a picture of Thomas and a write up.

I see you live in NZ.  Are you related to the Taylor family?   

George

Janette,

Hello again.  I am having a difficult time locating anything concrete on my great, great, great grandparents, Dougald and Mary Taylor.  In your below post you mention to Neroli that you took photos of the invoices of Donald's funeral.  If you still have those photos and wouldn't mind sending, I would love to have them.  My email address is (*).

Thanks,

George
