I’ve been entering different search terms into Google during my son’s naps and it may have finally paid off. I stumbled upon this yesterday and am wondering if this could be Sarah Jane Taylor’s family. If not, how huge of a coincidence is this?
I’ve been interested in this book that I’ve seen on CD on Ebay. I have since found it is available on Archive.org free.
I found this entry for a Mr. James Taylor:
“Mr. Taylor has been three times married. His first wife was Polly Ann Brumnitt who died at Utica, Missouri. One of her three children survive: Mrs. Sarah J. Artega [sic], of Santa Fe, New Mexico. Mr. Taylor’s second wife was Jeraldine M. Dennison. Her heirs are: Samuel G. Taylor, of Canon City, Colorado, and John W. Taylor, who died in Iola March 31, 1901. Mr. Taylor’s present wife was Maggie Shuey, whom he married in Johnson county, Kansas. To them was born one son who has been an invalid all his life.” [source]
