Hi, I may be able to help you. I have 2 lines of Taylor blood in my family tree. This set of Taylors includes my gggrandmother Martha Taylor, her brother John Daniel Jr and younger sister Caroline. There is no connection there to the Harrells through marriage. However, I have the other Taylor line which does include a Sarah Taylor. Her parents were Bythel and Sally (Haines) Taylor. The oldest documentation is an 1831 marriage record from Edgecombe County, NC. So Bythel and Sally can be found in the 1850 Federal Census living in Martin County, NC. Their daughter Sarah Taylor is listed as being 11 years old in 1850. That would give her a birthdate of 1839 or 1840. Her younger brother William is listed as being age 5 in 1850. William is my great grandfather. After the Civil War, I have not been able to find the mother Sally or any of the other children aside from my William and his older brother Bythel Jr (who I believe moved to Texas) Bythel Sr is listed as living alone after the Civil War. Due to the 1870 courthouse fire in Martin County, records are scarce. So, check to see if this Sarah has birthdate that would correspond to your Sarah (Sally). Please let me know how you fare.
