In Reply to: Re: Charles Taylor by Mary Lou Taylor of 396

If he was born in 1870 and his first child born before 1887, he was just a kid himself!!!
BINGO in three places:
(1) In the 1930 census of Harrison County, Texas, Charlie Taylor and wife Anna are living in Precinct 3 of Harrison County, Texas. I don't know where Precinct 3 is, but I do know that Harrison is directly east of Gregg County. His age is shown as 60 and that would correlate with his birth year of 1870. Too, back then, most folks just moved a few miles away, which is what he appears to have done. Harrison County has a large black population, so maybe he just figured he could 'lose' himself there. Wife Anna probably never knew he had been married before.
(2) The 1880 Census shows Andrew Shattuck Taylor married to Josie. Their four children were:
Charlie, age 10,
Elbert, age 8,
Lebscon, (male) age 6,
and Josie M. age 6 months.
(3) In the Jenkins Family Tree on, I found Andrew Shattuck Taylor b. 1844, d. 1890.
His wife, Josephine (Josie) Malinda Chadick was b. 1848 and d. 1928.
Their four children were:
Charlie b. 1870,
Elbert b. 1872,
Lebscon b. 1874 and
Josie M. b. 1879.
UNDER ELBERT: Elbert C. Taylor married Nora M. Coleman, b. 1876 and d. 1937. Their four children were:
Andrew C. b. 1893,
Charles E. b. 1896, d. 1988,
Elbert E. b. 1899,
Dorothy b. 1906

If you are going to continue researching, you need to bite the bullet and buy the cheapest membership in there is - between $150 and $175. Why? This gives you access to ALL census records plus other records such as the Jenkins Family Tree. Census records are invaluable in that they put a certain person in a certain place at a certain time. This tells you were to go to further your research.

I have been a member for over ten years and they automatically charge my credit card each year for the renewal membership fee. It's expensive but it's worth every penny if you plan to do much genealogical research. Genealogy folks like me will help up to a certain point, but then it takes OUR time and OUR effort to run all these folks down on all the census records so you could do the same if you joined.

I hope I have given you enough that you can continue searching and maybe come up with more answers.
