I am trying to research the Taylor family in Texas. They came here from Shelby County, Tennessee but had previously been in Alabama. My greatgrandfather was William Jesse Taylor. He was married to Debbie Lee Medlin. My grandfather was James Elbert Taylor married to Nannie Holt. I have also run across the names Daniel & Jemima. Do you have any of these names in your research. My greatgrandmother also told my Dad when he was a little boy that we were kin to Creed Taylor who fought in many wars for Texas independence. I believe his father was Josiah.
