Re: Stafford County Deed Books

I have been looking for info on a John C. Taylor, have been told his middle name is "Cummings" born abt. 1786 d. 1825 in Stafford Co. Info. given by Frances Elizabeth Carter-Smiith (Mrs. Vincent Smith) who was the daughter of
Judith Terrier Miller-Carter (1852-1943) and her husband French Pendleton Carter (1845-1920). Judith Terrier Miller-Carter was the daughter of Ann Elizabeth Taylor (1821-1889) and her husband William Henry Miller of Poplar Shade Plantation, Rappahannock Co., VA.

The info given states that John C.Taylor of Falmouth married Judith Cooke Terrier (abt. 1794-1837) d/o Francis Terrier and his wife Elizabeth Crewdson and they were the parents of Ann Elizabeth Taylor who married William Henry Miller.

Falmouth Tax List
1787, 1788 & 1789 William Taylor
1791, 1792, 1793 & 1794 Jonathan Harris for William Taylor
1795 through 1802 Francis Terrier
1803 Benjamin Weeks from Francis Terrier pt. lot No. 3 town of Falmouth
1804 Francis Terrier est. 1817 John Taylor
1830 John Taylor, heirs

The Will of Alexander Morson - Stafford Co.- 1817 - Alexander Morson died intestate in Oct 1822. noted on the back of will "will cancelled".
Hollywood property of Alexander Morson, tenants; Mrs. Norman, Jno Taylor all located on land owned by Alexander Morson 1817.

Ordinary Keepers of Stafford County in 1819 - John C. Taylor paid $18.00 to John W. Conway, Clerk

I have been able to ascertain that the widow, Judith Cooke Terrier-Taylor remarried in 1828 to Jamison Corbin and prior to her death in 1837 Judith C. Corbin made affidavit in Henrico Chancery Court Feb 17, 1834 ........that James Crewdson and Ellen C. Lewis are the only heirs at law of John Robins, who died about the year 1793. Ordered certified, Copy teste, J. Robinson, Clerk.

A page from a manuscript collection; George H. S. King Papers (Terrier family) Nicklin letter, p. 3. states "Mr. Nicklin could not find a Mr. Norman married to Elizabeth Crewdson Terrier or Judith C. T. Taylor's second marriage to Mr. Carter." Signed: Geo. H.S. King (Right here is a discrepency, Judith C. T. Taylor's second marriage was to widower, Mr. Jamison Corbin, not Mr. Carter.) However, Judith Terrier Miller d/o Ann Elizabeth Taylor and her husband William Henry Miller was married to French Pendleton Carter.

Proof from census records show that issue from the marriage of Judith C.T.Taylor to Jamison Corbin resulted in 2 children: Sallie Hill Corbin (1831-1915) and William Buchanan Corbin (1833-1916). Both children buried in the Miller-Dudley Cemetery at Poplar Shade Plantation in Rappahannock Co.

It is noted that after the death of Francis Terrier in 1803 his widow Elizabeth Crewdson-Terrier remarried a Mr. Norman. Note property owned by Alexander Morson in 1817 shows tenants as Mrs. Norman and Jno. Taylor.

In Falmouth Cemetery is buried:
       "In memory of Elizabeth Norman, who departed this life January 8, 1834 in the 66th year of her age."

Sat. Jan 18, 1834 Virginia Herald, Fredericksburg, VA: Died on Wednesday January 8th at the home of John H.S. Potts of Falmouth, Mrs. Elizabeth Norman, age 66 years.

I have extensive tax records of Stafford County showing
Francis Terrier and then estate of Francis Terrier and then Elizabeth Terry (should be Terrier)and same property tax the following year for Elizabeth Norman.

I am wondering if this John C. Taylor could have been the son of Mrs. Ann Taylor shown in tax record 1798? I have been told that John C. Taylor named his daughter Ann Elizabeth Taylor after each of her grandmothers.

Any info in your Stafford County Deed Books would be helpful. Thank you so much.
