States: Missouri: Pemiscot
Tom and Nancy (Melton) Taylor were living in Caruthersville, MO (Pemiscot Co.) when Tom was killed by bushwackers. They had at least three boys, Albert, Bill, and John Daniel. Either Albert or Bill had at least two girls, Minnie and Nannie (they moved to Steele, MO). Nancy, Albert, and Bill died of the fever around 1878 and John Daniel, at the age of 17 was told to leave the swampy area or he would die, too. He went somewhere in Texas and then to Decatur Co. TN where he married my great-grandmother, Fannie Anderson Tucker (daughter of George Washington Tucker, 1st blacksmith in Decatur Co.) on February 19, 1893. This is the only date I have on this family. John and Fannie had Albert (married to Beatrice Tucker), Bill, Ellison, Nannie, Vester (my grandfather, married to Maude Fisher), and maybe a girl named Mary (died at age of two). My grandfather, Vester and Maud (Fisher) had my dad, John Sidney Taylor, and daughters, Ann and Eve. Please, please, someone out there help me with my family. I am desperately trying to find Tom and Nancy and what John Daniel did in Texas. There may be a possibility that Tom and Nancy were from Springfield, Ohio. Any help at all would be greatly and sincerely appreciated. Kim Taylor
