Rev John Taylor
Birth: Oct. 27, 1752
Prince William County
Virginia, USA
Death: Apr. 12, 1835
Franklin County
Kentucky, USA

Rev. John Taylor was the author of A HISTORY OF TEN BAPTIST CHURCHES, A HISTORY OF CLEAR CREEK CHURCH, and THOUGHTS ON MISSIONS, his memoirs of his experiences as a Baptist Minister in early Virginia and Kentucky, with biographical sketches of other early Baptist ministers. After a long life he was buried near the Forks of Elkhorn Church, then in the 1980's his cemetery was moved to the Clear Creek Baptist Church in Woodford County. In 2000 those markers were temporarily removed for the placement of an educational building. The stones were still lying haphazardly behind the new educational building the following year. Taylor's writings were skillfully reworked into an annotated volume published as BAPTISTS ON THE AMERICAN FRONTIER, by Chester Raymond Young (1995). (bio by: Bill Davis)
