Cornelius Taylor (1777-1851) moved from Nash Co NC to Whitley Co KY ca 1820 (along with several other Nash Co NC families, including Creekmore and Batchelor). His wife was Rebecca (c1785-c1845). I had heard that her last name was Jones. This information may have come from the death certificate of their daughter Martha Taylor (1828-1920) which says that her mother was Mrs. Jones. The Census informaton for 1830 and 1840 indicates that she was born 1781-1790.
Upon looking further, I found that one of the sisters of Simon Peter Jones, Jr. (1788-1879), who also moved from Nash Co NC to Whitley Co KY, was Rebecca Jones, b. 14 Apr 1784. That information appears as follows:
"Simon Peter Jones born 3 Jan 1758 Halifax died 28 Feb 1790 Nash
William 1 Sep 1776
Jeremiah 12 Jan 1781
Rebecca 4 Apr 1784
Elizabeth 25 Mar 1786
Simon Peter of Whitley Co Ky 5 Feb 1787"
Does anyone know whether this is the Rebecca Jones who m. Cornelius Taylor?
Her father Simon Peter Jones, Sr., died in 1790 and her mother remarried William Vester, Jr. So she may have gone by that last name.
William Jones, brother of Simon, also moved to Whitley Co KY. Jeremiah apparently stayed in Nash Co NC.
