Richard Taylor
Birth: 1834
Madison County
Alabama, USA
Death: Feb. 23, 1890
Washington
Daviess County
Indiana, USA

Civil War Congressional Medal of Honor Recipient. He served as a Private in the Union Army in Company E, 18th Indiana Infantry. He was awarded the Medal of Honor for action on October 19, 1864 at Cedar Creek, Virginia. His citation reads "Capture of Flag." NOTE: Original interment was in the town cemetery which was abandoned in 1895. Their was a reinterment in St. John's Cemetery for those who could afford the fee. Taylor's remains and others who were not reinterred, stayed and the area was eventually paved over. In recent years a patriotic organization placed a Medal of Honor Flat Bronze marker affixed to a monument in Pioneer Park honoring Taylor and other county pioneers. (bio by: Don Morfe)
