Descendants of William Taylor and Elizabeth Wells Taylor are hugely indebted to Grace Linden and Diane Schmidt for their 2000 book "Taylor Family Chronicles: The Descendants of William and Elizabeth Wells Taylor" (291 pp.). Diane's email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
As Diane says,
"William was baptized August 17, 1784, in Grainsby, Lincolnshire, England. He was a farm laborer in Grainsby for many years. According to his youngest son, Joseph Taylor, in "The Descendants of William Taylor", William worked for 21 years on a farm owned by a Mr. Harris
(actually Mr. Haigh, the owner of Grainsby Hall).
"Elizabeth was baptized July 27, 1783, in Laceby, Lincolnshire, England. She was the oldest girl of a family of six. Elizabeth married William December 26, 1803 (not December 24, as noted in the "Descendants") in the parish of North Thoresby.
"Almost all of William and Elizabeth's 10 children came to the US. They all settled first in Cincinnati, Ohio, though most of them then moved elsewhere in the United States. The Taylors did very well in America.
"We haven't been able to find out where William and Elizabeth lived in Cincinnati, but unfortunately Elizabeth didn't have long to enjoy life in the big city. She died of cholera July 1, 1849. She had only been sick for 13 hours. William died Sunday, June 19, 1859, of unknown cause. His funeral was held at his son John's home in Cincinnati."
