Gospel preacher listed on Ligon's Portraiture of Preachers of 1899.

George Granville Taylor was born in the small town of Fisherville, Jefferson County, Ky. He became a Christian in 1851. His education included Bethany College and Kentucky University. At age 22, Taylor began to preach and soon was called for religious discussions. He was a frequent contributor to the pages of the Gospel Advocate. Taylor wrote two tracts published by Gospel Advocate Co., "Justification Versus Baptism for the Remission of Sins" and "A Review of W.T. Moore's Tract on 'Woman's Work in the Church.'" In 1897, at the invitation James A. Harding, Taylor critically reviewed David Lipscomb's Civil Government in lectures before the faculty and students of Nashville Bible School. F.D. Srygley wrote of Taylor that he was "a clear and vigorous thinker and a pleasant, scholarly speaker." He is buried in Cave Hill Cemetery in Louisville, Ky. --Gospel Advocate, June 2005.
