According to Goodspeed's biography of Joseph R. Taylor of Bradley, his parents were Larkin C. Taylor and Martha Read Taylor. The biography claims that Larkin fought in the War of 1812. But, according to the 1840 census in Bradley, Larkin was in the 30-39 age range (1801-1810) and indeed, his Findagrave memorial says he was born in 1802.
So would he have "led out a company" in the War of 1812 when he was 10 or 11 years old?
I would love to speak with descendants of Joseph Robert Taylor, bricklayer, of Cleveland who died in 1847.
I'm trying to determine if I'm related to this line. I have DNA tested at Ancestry, FTDNA, MyHeritage, 23andMe and Gedmatch.
