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
