James Paul died in 1909. I'm not exactly sure where, but he is buried in Vidor, Texas in Williamson cemetery. His first wife he married in March of 1850, in Panola County. Her name was Elizabeth Anderson. In 1860 they are living in McLennan County, Texas and James is working as a Teamster. In 1870 they are still there, but now James is married to a different woman, her name is Susan. I'm not sure where Elizabeth is buried. Jim and Susan moved to Louisiana sometime in the early 1870's, and in 1880 he's listed on the census in Calcasieu as a timberman. In 1900, James is widowed again and living with two of his sons, still in Calcasieu. Nine years later he was buried in Vidor, so i'm not sure if he moved there or what. Jame's children were:
William R. Taylor- born in 1851 or 1854
Jonathan Anderson "jont" Taylor- 1852-1930
Sarah A. Taylor- 1855-?
Henry Caufield Taylor- 1857-1903
Sameul Thomas Taylor- 1858-1941
Charlotte Taylor- 1863-?
James Britton Taylor-1867-1941
Thomas Taylor- 1870-1961
Reece Taylor- 1875-1959

Samuel Thomas Taylor moved back to Panola and married Lucy Jane Anderson in 1882. His son is James Edgar Taylor. James Edgar's son is otis "boss" Taylor, my grandpa. Jonathan Anderson Taylor eventually settled in freestone, county, texas. Henry Caufield, Thomas, and Reece all went to Louisiana and their descendants are living in and around Lake Charles right now. There was a James Taylor who married a woman named Ann Paul in Virginia in the revolutionary war days. James Taylor had a brother named Caufeld. I'm not sure if i'm grasping for straws or what, but James PAUL Taylor named his son caufield. This older James Taylor could possibly be a great grandfather or grandfather to my James Paul Taylor.
