Drewery Taylor married Mary Screws, 13 May 1834, G.W. Drake bm, (w) A. Whitfield (from Williams and Griffiths). Was this for Dempsey instead of Drewery Taylor?
Tarlton Screws’ name was changed to Tarlton Taylor and witness Tarlton Taylor was in the 3 Feb (1851) will of Kinchen Taylor below (and compare the names above and below).
Based upon abstracts: the widow of Kinchen Taylor, Mary (with the same children), said Kinchen died in February (no year and no other dates) and guardian accounts for at least three of the children were dated 1851 – so Kinchen Taylor must have died in Feb 1851.
