I am researching my Taylor line who lived in Sumner county TN during the early 19th Century.
I am back to Jarrett Taylor, born about 1800 who married Delila and I find them in the 1850 census. The next step is to figure out who are his parents. Everyone says his dad is Thomas Taylor but on the familysearch.org site, I found Thomas' will and it lists Pleasant Taylor as the son.
On the Rev War pension, it lists Gerard Taylor instead of Pleasant. When you look at the Sumner County marriages, there is a Pleasant Taylor who married Peggy Curry in 1838. That's not my Taylor because he is married to Delila, but I can't find a marriage record. So, were there were 2 men named Pleasant Taylor?
I am hoping someone who has researched this line can tell me why they are think Thomas is the father of Jarrett. I'm hoping there is something linking the Jarrett Taylor married to Delilah in the 1850 census to the same Pleasant named in Thomas Taylor's will.
