Charles TAYLOR & Sarah JONES
Posted by: Bob Gootee (ID *****9102) Date: February 02, 2009 at 05:36:59

Can anyone of the Taylor and/or Jones researchers out there assist me ??
I'm trying to trace the record of my GGGfather, Charles Taylor b. 1827 in Delaware and d.1903 in Chincoteague. He's buried in Mechanics Cemetery.
Charles m. #2 a Sarah Ann ??? ca.1872 and had a dau. Sallie b. 1874 who m. Major Kelly in Chincoteague.Both Kellys supposedly buried in Downing Cemetery in Oak Hall but the stones are not listed on the cemetry online list of gravestones.
I would like the maiden name of the Sarah Ann Jones to prove that I have the right wife.
In the Islands census in 1870, Charles is living with the Josiah Baker family and living next door to a Sarah Ann Jones, age 38 with two children, Lydia A age 7 and Thomas B, age 3. No husband listed.
This could well be the Sarah I'm looking for but can't determine her maiden name.
In the 1890 Chincoteague census, Charles is living with his daughter Jennie and husband Woolsey Burton.
The obit of Charles in 1903 lists a son Thomas who is never listed in any other documents. I propose that Charles may have adopted Sarahs son Thomas. Can't find any adoption records for that time period. Any help appreciated.
Thank You
