Hello, I am trying to find infomation on the Taliaferro family that lived in Waco, TX area in 1800's. Some are buried in our property, McNamara farm, and the unmarked graves are endangered, as the City of Waco has planned a road through our land. We are fighting this road and trying to preserve these graves, but need living family contacts. It is rather urgent.

Please let me know if you have any information on these members of the Taliaferro's:
Thank you!
