I have some quesetions also. People keep posting that Sherwood James, Sr. married Anne Taliaferro, but I've seen no proof of that. There is a record that a Sherwood James m. Anne Long in 1721. Also, I haven't found proof that Martha Holiday was Sherwood James, Jr.'s wife. Holiday/Holladay wills do not list her. It would make sense that her maiden name would be Taliaferro because of their son Taliaferro James. The name Taliaferro continues as a middle name in their descendants for nearly 100 years after. Still, I haven't been able to find a Taliaferro that married Sherwood.
