Felix G. Taylor married Mary Ann Smith 12/30,1839 in Pope Co., IL, but it wasn't registered at the court house until 1/2/1840. In 1840 they lived in Pope Co., IL and he was a farmer. In 1850 they lived in Massac Co., IL and he was a farmer. (Census records.) Felix died in 1853 in Massac Co., IL. The Massac Co. Probate records show J. W. Golightly as executor of the estates of Felix Taylor in 1853 and Mary Ann Taylor in June 1858. The Probate records, File 1853 #P17, for Felix G. Taylor are missing from the Massac County Circuit Clerk's record archives. Mary Ann Taylor died in June, 1858 in Massac Co., IL. On June 18, 1858 in Brooklyn, IL J. W. Golightly, administrator of her estate, purchased materials for her burial, including 4 1/2 yards of velvet to cover the coffin. I have copies of her estate records.

Mary Ann Smith came to IL with her mother and step-father, Enoch Fleece from Ohio sometime between 1828 and 1839. Their only family member that I know of that resided in Pulaski County was their daughter, Constancy Taylor-Golightly-Burk-Lowry-Keller.

Felix Allen Taylor is buried in Missouri. He moved with his family to Stone Co., MO sometime between 1883 and 1893. His occupation was physician/surgeon. He died 4/6/1922 in Barry Co., MO. He is buried at Oak Hill Cemetery in Barry Co., MO. His first wife Mary Jane Ritchie and their infant son are buried at Anderson Congregational Church near Boaz, IL. His 2nd wife, Alice Medora Ritchie, was a sister of his first wife. Alice died 2/13/1931 in Lawrence Co., MO.

Felix G. and Mary Ann (Smith) Taylor were my gg-grandparents. Their youngest child, Mary Ann Taylor, was my g-grandmother. She moved to Jefferson Co., IL with the family of her sister, Constancy, between 1862 and 1870. Mary Ann married William Yearwood in 1873. After his death she married Alvin Reynolds. After his death she married Edward Warman. My g-grandmother always talked to her family about how she was an Indian Princess. Don't know about the Princess part, but apparently there is some truth to the Indian part.

I have found all the children of Felix G. and Mary Ann Taylor and most of their children. I also have documents for the info I have written here. I have copies of the death certificates for Felix Allen Taylor, Constancy Taylor Keller, John Harrison Taylor and Mary Ann Taylor Warman. Also other records,including land records.
