According to Anne S. Dandridge and Dr. Andrew Glassell Grinnan (both genealogists), Memucan Hunt met with Congressman Robert Taylor and General James Taylor V [and Hubbard Taylor according to the Hubbard Taylor MS] around 1735-37 to make copies of the Taylor family tree. Hunt's copy was found in New Orleans, but has since dissappeared (possibly in the fire that destroyed the records of Dr. A. G. Grinnan--Grinnan says it was found but not by whom or where it went after it was found).

  2. 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.;
