INTRODUCTION AND ACKNOWLEDGMENTS
I am Patricia Bliss Cox, researcher, and wife of Calvin Edward Cox, Jr., who is a great
great grandson of James M i I ton and Permel ia Taylor. We are greatly indebted to the many fami ly
and professional research sources who have provided information for this study.
Our many visits with new-found relatives have been most enjoyable and enlightening,
hopefully for both parties as we traveled to these sources, telephoned, and corresponded to
develop more accurate information on our family.
Letters were written sol iciting family history from relatives; most were answered but
some were never acknowledged. I wish to thank al I of you who were kind enough to complete and
return your family history forms. I could not have accomplished any of this without your help.
Old and new photographs have been shared. Thank you for trusting me with your
treasures. I know you w i l l enjoy the photograph section, there are some marvelous pictures of
your ancestors. Reproducing photo copies does not always turn out wel I, some are better than
others, please forgive.
Calvin and I have copies of births, marriages, deaths, family photographs, personal
letters, photographs of tombstones, (we have visited many cemeteries of our ancestors; these
photographs wi 11 be included). I have obtained vital statistics from corresponding with fami ly
members, other researchers, county and state offices, state and local libraries, and numerous
Historical Societies. Dates have been correlated f r om census sheets, tombstones, and documents
submitted by fami ly, but this does not mean that al I are accurate.
Thomas Ulvan Taylor, grandson of James Milton Taylor, and son of John Henry Taylor,
wrote several books and many magazine articles during his career at the University of Texas,
one of which is his autobiography, "Fifty Years on Forty Acres." This book, and his research
notes, provided basic data on family members which was invaluable when searching census
records and other documents. I thank Thomas Ulvan Taylor every day!
In the spring of 1993 in Bossier City, Louisiana, Calvin and I met James Robert Stone
and his lovely wife, Tressia, he prefers to be called Robert Calvin and Robert, being third
cousins, met for the f i rst time. Robert is also a great great grandson of James and Par me I ia
Taylor and has spent several years searching through census, marriage, and other records for
several counties of Texas, Tennessee and Virginia. He has contributed much to this project and I
do thank him. Robert has concentrated on lineage # 8 , the Francis King Taylor family from
Fannin County, Texas. I have concentrated on lineage # 1 , John Henry Taylor family from
Parker County, Texas. Al I of our efforts have been merged to make this book as complete and
accurate as possible.
James Robert Stone has in his possession original documents, such as: Old bible family
registers, original marriage certificates, many newspaper clippings of births and deaths (some
as far back as 1889, including one original newspaper of 1889), several original land deeds as
far back as 1870's, original letters as far back as the 18 80s, photographs as far back as the
1860's, information from old photo albums back to the 187O's, magazines with a number of
articles containing pertinent information published in the 1920's, original "penny postcards"
written during the period 1907 to 1932, data copied directly from tombstones, correspondence
with various uncles, aunts, cousins, and personal conversations with some of them.
Evlyn Broumley, Librarian from the Genealogy and Local History Department at the
Weatherford Library in Parker County, Texas has contributed much to this research and I

You will find that I have included additional "Family Lineages" which I hope will prove
interesting to some of you and to some of the younger generation, who might be interested in
history or possibly further research. These families are all connected to our Taylor Lineage,
many wore early settlers of East Tennessee, Texas and Virginia and gave so much. Many served
in the Indian Wars, American Revolution, War of 1812, Civil War, World WBr I and World War
I do not guarantee complete accuracy in these records, there are always discrepancies in
genoelogieel research. We do the boot wo can with what we find! All census records, court
records and etc wi 11 be typed exactly as wore recorded.
Following is a list of just a few individuals who contributed so much time and effort helping me
with statistics, names, address, telephone numbers, obituaries, photographs and etc If I have
forgotten anyone, please forgive.

THE ORIGINAL TAYLOR COMING FROM SCOTLAND/IRELAND
TO AMERICA CIRCA 1790
it has been told that the original Taylors came from Houston House Scotland. Houston
House is located in Renfrewshire, west of Glasgow. See maps.*
Because of religious repression, many Scots emigrated to Northern Ireland in the mid
1700's and thence to Virginia where they settled in the Shenandoah Val ley, the Val ley of the
James, and on either side of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Perhaps, Mr. Taylor and Rachel were
among them; however, of this we have no verification, until the birth of their son. James Milton
Taylor, in Campbell County in 1790/1792.
Since we do not have the first name of Mr. Taylor nor the maiden name of his wife
Rachel, and no one knows what ship they sailed on to America, it has been impossible to
Thomas Ulvan Taylor, grandson of James Milton Taylor writes in his autobiography.
"Fifty Years on Forty Acres, that the father and mother of James M ilton Taylor, left the
northern part of Ireland to found a home in America, but the father died enroute and was buried
at sea. The mother continued her journey and settled in Campbel I County, Virginia, near
Lynchburg, where James Milton Taylor was born. See maps of Virginia.*
(Given name unknown) TAYLOR, Scotch-Irish descent
Married: Radiol (maiden name unknown)
(they had one child)
James Milton Taylor, b. 1790, Campbell County, Virginia,
d. 16 August 1S69, bur. Mount Pisgah Cemetery, Cumberland
Rachael married a second time, in 1800 to James Burnett, by whom she had one child.
No trace has been found as to the fate of this chi Id Marriages of Campbel I County, Virginia,
1782-1810. reveals that this marriage took place as follows:
Burnett, James and Rachel Tayler*. bond 14 July 1800. James Burnett (b) and John
Wright (b); Whn Lee (w) and John Wright (w). Taylor, 24 July 1800 by William
Flowers lists the bride as Rachel Taylor.
(*) indicates bride gave own consent (b) bondsman (w) witness.
A thorough search reveals that this is the only marriage in Campbell County, Virginia
between a male with last name of Burnett and female with last name of Taylor (or Tayler)
between 1782 and 1810 (maximum range of probability).

James Milton Taylor, was of Scotch-Irish descent The ages reflected for him in census
data for the years 1830, 1840 and 1850 all correlate to his birth in 1792. His tombstone
indicates he was born in 1790. The place of birth specified by James Milton himself in census
records, indicates place of birth was near Lynchburg, Campbell County, Virginia. I have been
unable to verify this as Virginia does not have birth records before 1853.
Campbel I County was formed from a huge chunk of Bedford County in 1781, it was named
for General William Campbell, the hero of the Battle of Kings Mountain fought the year before.
James Milton Taylor, in 1812, Campbell County, Virginia, married Pamelia Dickey,
daughter of John Dickey. Their first five children were born in Campbell County, Virginia,
including one born in 1820. See early maps of Virginia.*
The following Deed of Trust was found in Campbell County, Virginia by researcher,
Charles Mattox of Lynch Station, Virginia. It indicates that a James Taylor was residing in the
County of Buckingham, Virginia in 1819. Campbell and Buckingham Counties, border one
INTERESTING DEED OF TRUST: D. B. 12 p. 219, 22 October 1819. found by Charles Mattox,
researcher from Campbell County, Virginia. See copy.*
"Between James Taylor of the County of Buckingham of the one part and Samuel Dickey of
the County of Anderson and State of Tennessee of the other part Witnesseth that the said James
Taylor for the love and affection which he hath for Susan Dickey, the wife of John Dickey and for
and in consideration of the sum of one do I lar in hand paid by the said Samuel Dickey the receipt
whereof is hereby acknowledged he the said James Taylor hath granted bargained and sold and by
these presents doth grant bargain and sell unto the said Samuel Dickey one sorrel horse, one bay
horse, one bay mare and two feather beds with their furniture to have and to hold the said
property unto him the said Samuel Dickey his heirs and assigns forever. Nevertheless upon
trust for the special benefit and separate use of Susan Dickey the wife of John Dickey during her
natural I ife and after her death to be returned unto the possession of the said James Taylor and
his heirs." Witness our hands and seal the day and year above written.
(John Dickey, father of Permelia had a son named Samuel and a brother named Samuel,
it has not been determined which Samuel signed this Deed of Trust, if either)
Sometime between 1820 and 1823 the young couple along with their five children,
joined the great movement to locate on the "western waters," and moved to Roane County,
Tennessee, settling north of the Tennessee River, one mile north of the town of Kingston.
Their remaining seven chi ldren were born here, including one named Nancy, who is said
to have died young. Researcher, James Robert Stone, was unable to locate her in any census
data, so it is assumed that she was born and died between census and was less than ten years old
Later records indicate that the family is living in Morgan County, Tennessee, still later
in Cumberland County, Tennessee (Earlier settlers were listed in Anderson and Roane
Counties, later in Morgan, still later in Cumberland without having moved because of the county

PIONEERS OF ROANE COUNTY, TENNESSEE 1801 -1830

Early Settlement and Boundaries of Roane County. Tennessee

who had been absorbed into the white community escaped the removal to the West in 1838.
Although earlier treaties removed their claim to much of the land, it was not until the treaties
of 1817 and 1819 that the Cherokee title to land in present Roane County finally extinguished
