Most family trees of Jennet Taylor, born 1731 show that she married John Anderson and had 3 children: John, Matthew and Jane. In Jennetís fatherís Matthew Taylorís will of 1770, he mentions only those three children. And then the 3 children by Joseph Findley.

Another group of trees shows that Jennet Taylor, born 1731 married John Anderson and had 3 children, Elizabeth, Daniel and John, Jr..

Iím sure that the Daniel Iím looking for had a wife named Elizabeth who married Anthony Asher after Danielís death in 1795. He had 4 children: Jane, James, Elizabeth and John (our 4th great grandfather). I believe Daniel was born in PA, probably Carlise about 1760.

Daniel did document a land sale of ďpart of the home placeĒ in 1794 in which Sarah Anderson and Jean Anderson were the witnesses, not his wife Elizabeth. That makes me think that Jean may be the mother and Sarah, perhaps, a sister? A later document dated 1797 notes that ďJeanĒ is ďnear seventy years of ageĒ.

Can anyone help me confirm Jennet Taylorís children and hopefully the true mother of Daniel.
