My Taylors are from Essex and Caroline County VA. Wondering if anyone has come across James Zachary Taylor b:1855 in Virginia, possibly Caroline County, and married to Katherine Matilda Taylor b:1863. The family lived in Essex County Va from at least 1900. James died 1938 at Eastern State Hospital in Williamsburg,VA where he had been committed for several years. I have been unsuccessful in finding any records that would indicate his whereabouts prior to 1882. His death records list his parents as unknown. Marriage record Dec 1882 for James and Kate states that he was born in Caroline County VA but has his
parents listed the same as Kate's. (John M Taylor and Mary Thomas). I think that this is a mistake. I would love to communicate with anyone who may have come across this family in their research or have any ideas on how to proceed.
