Not sure you got my other Email response. Thank you for the info. I'd seen that on the LDS website but wasn't sure it was the Emeline (Everett)I was looking for. But the fact George Taylor was a Captain and having Smithville noted are very important, as he was a Captain then and Smithville is where Fort Johnston, NC was located. George Taylor was stationed there at that time. Do the records indicate his birth in GA c. 1816 and hers in NC c. 1824? Any parents names given? A book, "Gales of War" by Tamara Taylor-Leigh," about Major George Taylor (he later fought in the Mexican War)is about to be published. GT and wife Emeline were swept off the deck of the SS San Francisco 12/24/1853 off the East Coast, after leaving NYC. Somehow my g-g-grandmother Margaret Parker, their adopted dau., survived. Authors of book are amazed to find Taylors had an adopted dau! I'm now trying to piece together her early life in the States. Her parents died shortly after emigrating from England and Margaret was known to have lived as a child in Wilmington, NC. Do you know anything about NC adoption records in the 1840's?
I assume you are referring to marr. records from St. James Episc. Church, are you not? I like to note sources!
Thanks ever so much again and if you can shed any more light on my quest, I'd appreciate it!
