"New here interested in Taylor
« on: Monday 11 January 10 02:26 GMT (UK) »
Looking for anyone with a connection to Theophilus Taylor:
Hope to hear from someone real soon.

Here's a lil info on Theophilus Taylor:



1. THEOPHILUS2 TAYLOR (UNKNOWN1) was born 1759 in Virginia, and died October 05, 1845 in Franklin County, Georgia Buried in Carnes Cemetary Tocca, Georgia. He married (1) VIRGINA CLINKSCALES. She died 1843 in Buried in Carnes Cemetary Tocca, Georgia.

Notes for THEOPHILUS TAYLOR:

There is an early story stating that the first we hear regarding the Taylor Family is that "Theopheus Taylor and a Mr Keller came across from England". This would have been the father of Theophilus (or Theophus, alternate spelling) if the story is correct.

Theophilus Taylor was born in 1759 in Virginia. At an early age he moved with his family to North Carolina. In January, 1779, he was living in Montgomery County, North Carolinam where he was drafted for three months service in the Revolution. During this tour he served under Captain Pawns and Colonel Childs. He was first marched from Montgomery County to Mecklenburg County (Charlotte) to assist General Blufort's wounded men. Then his company marched to Massy Ferry on the Pee Dee River where they remained some time guarding the Ferry. From there they marched to Rockingham Mills where he remained until Colonel Thomas Wade took command of the company and marched them down to Betty's Bridge on Drowning Creek where they had a severe engagement with Hector McNeill who was commander of the Tories and British. After the fight was over they marched back to Kimbry near Massy Ferry, where Theophilus was stationed until his time was out and was discharged.

Theophilus then moved to Anson County, North Carolina where he was again drafted for an eighteen month tour under Captain Theophilus Webb and Colonel Lacey. He was ordered to Charleston, South Carolina and marched within forty miles of the city. He was stationed at what was called Four Holes, where he remained until his time was out and received a printed discharge from General Poak.

Following his second dischargem Theophilus returned to Anson County, North Carolina where he lived about five years. Approximately 1786 he moved to Cheraw District (Chesterfield County, South Carolina) and lived there eighteen years where he raised his family.

The family moved to Franklin County, Georgia around 1805, where they purchased land from Jeremiah and Leah Taylor on the North Fork of the Broad River (adjoining Tate and Dunagan), April 18, 1806. Theophilus and his wife lived on this property (now Stephens County, Georgia) the remaining years of their lives. Theophilus served as First Lieutenant in the local militia district from 1825-1929.

On June 5, 1845, Theophilus Taylor deeded the land on which he lived to (blind) Stephen Taylor of Habersham County, Georgia, and Henry F. L. Taylor of DeKalb County, Alabama for natural love and affection of his grandsons. Theophilus died October 5, 1845 and his wife died about 1843. They are buried in Carnes Creek Cemetery near Toccoa, Georgia. His estate was administered and settled on August 7, 1855 by Jeptha W. and Jeremiah E. Taylor of Forsyth County, Georgia.
