Col. George Taylor

USA / Colonel / Revolutionary War
Flag of United States
Aged: 81.7 years
From the Francis Taylor diary: George Taylor is buried between his wife, Rachel, & mother, Martha (Thompson) Taylor

Ten (out of 12) of his sons were in the Revolutionary War.  The youngest one, George Conway, from his second wife was not old enough. His first son, George, had died before the Revolution.

Orange County was not formed until 1734. James Taylor II did not patent land there until 1722 (then Spotsylvania Co.). James II lived in King & Queen County and his children would have been born there.

In 1727 James II gave land to George where he built Midland Plantation just outside of Orange Court House and "next door" to his brothers James III (at Bloomsbury) and Zachary (at Meadowfarm) and Erasmus (at Greenfield). George most likely died where he lived in then Orange County.

  5. Website:Taylor Family Tree (on linen). According to Ann Spotswood Dandridge, the Taylor Tree was started around 1750. There were several copies made around 1837/38 which cannot be found.; I think what my family has is the original. A scan of the linen tree done by the Gerald Ford Center in Omaha can be found at the Taylor Association website.;
