TAYLOR - I am seeking information on JOHN TAYLOR and his wife, MARY,
who were probably born and married in Nansemond Co., VA. According to a deed
he made in Edgecombe Co., NC, he called himself "of Nansemond Co., VA". He
made his will June 12, 1785, [Will Book A, Franklin Co., NC] and mentioned
his wife, MARY, their daughter, MOURNING, and "my daughters or their
representatives." He appointed two of his sons-in-law, brothers HENRY and
HARDY HUNT, as executors. The five daughters of JOHN and MARY TAYLOR were:
SARAH marred HENRY HUNT; MARY married HARDY HUNT; LUCRETIA married JESSE
WEBB; MOURNING married JOHN MITCHELL, and RUTH ANN married (1) WILLIAM POWELL
and (2) WILLIAM BABB. A number of TAYLOR researchers are attempting to solve
the connection of JOHN TAYLOR to LABAN TAYLOR, son of JONATHAN and ABIGAIL
TAYLOR of Sampson Co., NC, as the five daughters were heirs of LABAN's estate.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Bob

he is connected with Perquimans County North Carolina in 1693, I believe
