I need to talk to Joe Barrus ID#6416. We have several ancestors in common including my Gr Gr Gr grandfather Elijah Taylor. I would also like to talk to anyone else who is familar with Elijah Taylor born in 1798. I am sure about him and his son Toliver who was killed in the Battle of Franklin Tenn. but I know nothing else and would like know more about him. He supposedly owned and managed several plantations in S. Carolina and Ga. The family says he was the first cousin of President Zachary Taylor. I have an old letter written in 1942 by his granddaughter that takes me up to Elijah and his wife Mary Leverett. Toliver was married to Ann Mc Allister of Abbeyville but everything about this has been disputed on ancestry. Anyone who knows please contact me. Sallie Hood.
