Birth: Feb. 27, 1859
Orange County
North Carolina, USA
Death: Mar. 6, 1931
Jasper County
Missouri, USA

h/o 1st widow, Mrs Mary D (Fisher) Ray, 2nd Emma C Miller.

Birth: 8th of eight known children in Hillsborough, Orange county, North Carolina.

Census: 1860, age 1 Sherill township, Texas county, Missouri with parents & seven siblings.

Census: 1870, age 11 Sherill township, Texas county, Missouri with parents & three siblings.

Removed to Carthage, Jasper county from Texas county, Missouri around 1894.

Reportedly in 1897, before City Hospital on west Centenial was conceived and built: A representative paid a visit today to the hospital and infirmary of Drs. [A H] Hull and [C B] Taylor, one block east of the Harrington. It is undoubtedly one of the most complete institutions of the kind in Southwest Missouri and is a decided credit to Carthage.

The house is well appointed in every detail, and is magnificently equipped. On the first floor is a commodious reception room, Dr. Taylor's office, Dr. Hull's office and a dispensary which is a small drug store. The doctors' offices are each supplied with numerous instruments; those for surgical purposes in Dr. Taylor's office and for treating the eye, ear, nose and throat in Dr. Hull's office. These instruments are so numerous, varied and modern that an attempt to describe them would require a column of space. They are the best that money can buy and must be seen to be appreciated.
