James is believed to be the son of Dennis and Margaret Taylor of Wilcox Co, Ga.

Dennis was recorded in Irwin Co, GA in 1850 and Wilcox Co. in 1860. In 1870 Margaret was recorded in Wilcox Co, GA with same children.
-1850 Dennis, 70 M b. in SC; Peggy, 22 F b. in GA; Sarah 90 F, b. in NC; Abby 60 F, b. in NC; Lemuel 5 M, b. in GA & James 1 M, b. in GA.
-1860 Dennis, 65 M b. in SC; Peggy 33 F; John 15 M; James 11 M; Dincy 7 M; Sampson 9 M, Sarah Ann M 1 F & Jessie 4 mo
-1870 Margaret 41 F, John 23 M, James 21 M, Sampson 19 M, Dennis 15 M, Jesse 13 M, Sarah 11 F, Julia 9 F, George 6 M & Zetter 2 M. All shown born in Georgia.

James Taylor married Maranda Jones and had Robert b. Mar 1877, Samuel b. Apr 1878, James W b. Nov 1882, Lilla B b. Feb 1886, Eva May b. Mar 1893, Jessie b. 1890, Maggie J b. Mar 1896, Eddie b. Apr 1897 and Martha L b. Dec 1899.

The fact that James named 2 children Samuel and Jessie and his age fitís the profile leads me to believe that James is the son of Dennis.

I would greatly appreciate any comments and help I can get.
