You posted in the Wayne County, Utah board, any reason for posting here?

I see you are relatively new to posting on Rootsweb (at least under this user name). It is very helpful to post the information you have on persons you seek. Since you have a posted family tree, post the link. That helps identify what you already know, don't get information you already have and prevent those that can't find information from asking a bunch of questions about persons that aren't correct.

You show he died in 1907 in Madison, IL.

The 1900 Census of Alton Ward 7, Madison County, IL, enumerated 1 June 1900
James Taylor, born Nov 1867 in Illinois to both parents born in Unknown, laborer/street railway
Leathey M, born Nov 1869 in IL to both parents born in IL, married 1 year (1898/1899), mother of 1/1 living.
Ethel M Eardley, Step-Dau, born Mar 1893 in IL to both parents born in IL.

Sons identified in your tree:
--Allan Russell Taylor
Born 29 Mar 1902, died Sep 1985 in East Alton, Madison Co, IL
--Chester Arthur Taylor
Born 28 Oct 1903 in IL, died 20 Nov 1981 in East Alton, IL
Residence 1 April 1940, age 36

The 1910 Census of Wood River, Madison Co, IL
Leathey Taylor, age 40, born in IL to father born in Virginia, mother in IL, occupation: Keeper/Boarders, widow, mother of 3/3 living
Ethel, 17, IL/IL/IL
Allen, 8
Chester, 6
Archie Word(?), 22, boarder
John Litchenal, father, 73, born in Virginia.

Mary Leathey Taylor's full DOD was 1932-11-02, but you probably have that, just not on your posted tree.

The Illinois Marriage Index shows James Taylor marriage to Leathy M Tishmal, Feb 1899 in Macoupin County.

The Madison County Probate Files show a James Taylor, but the database is identified as only going to 1903.

Another posted tree:
shows James Taylor died 16 May 1907 per a letter of a Dorothy Meisenheimer wrote that James died when the boys were 3 or 4, per a Billie Atchison.... Family lore is often wrong.

Another posted tree identifies
Mary had been married to a Joseph Eardly. Ethel May Eardly born 13 Mar 1893, died 1 May 1928, was married to "private."

Another shows Joseph Eardley born 1 June 1866 in Madison, died 19 Mar 1939 in St. Louis, MO

It seems all of your research would be in Illinois.
