Married Jennie Grundy on June 8, 1904 in Salt Lake City

The following written by Carol Faulkner Floyd.
Regarding her experiences at The Old Rock House with her Grandfather Lorenzo Jedediah Taylor & Grandmother Jennie Grundy, and reflects the good people they were.
THE OLD ROCK HOUSE
The Old Rock House stands tall and bleak against the sky.
For it scare can tell the story of so many years gone by.
A broken fence, the weeds grown tall amid a dozen trees,
Yet the black and white rock home stands proud.

It has known better days than these.
Now strangers may point with scorn and remark that its
a fright.
But we who know see beauty and are humbled by its sight.

Many came to visit, many came to stay,
and they added to its good record before they moved or
passed away.
I recall how my heart skipped a beat and oh how we would
squeal,
just spotting that house when we finally topped the hill.

There were times when laughter rocked the walls and
little children sang.
With family reunions, love at home and bells on Christmas
rang.
Times they gathered around the table and knelt before
their chair.
Thus rising early every morning they offered family
prayer.

Hot irons wrapped in towels tucked in bed to warm us from
the cold.
The whittling and singing and stories Grandad told.
The farm fresh milk with home made bread and Grandma used
to bake.
The gooseberry pie and hollyhock dolls she showed me how
to make.

No enemies ever left this house nor stranger entered in.
This house holds stories of compassion and charity
within.
The hungry fed, the poor was clothed, the lonely found
a friend.
Their test of faith was giving and they were faithful
to the end.

Now the worn rock stoop is a marker of days that could
not last.
Recalling to us sweet memories and silent yearning for
the past.

Carol Faulkner Floyd, the Great-Granddaughter of
William Riley Taylor, the builder of "The Old Rock
House"
