Bio and Links
Bio Photo Hello. I am Nathan Thomas Taylor, born in 1966 in Ohio, United States of America, to father Merl Virgil Taylor and mother Thelma Louise DeLong (maiden name Somers, married name Taylor; later name DeLong). I presently live in San Diego, California.

I would like to express a huge thank you to all of you who have contributed to the Find A Grave Website. Your hard work in creating and maintaining memorials, researching information, making edits, taking photographs, adding photographs, making links between memorials of deceased family members, and all else that goes into this website has made it possible for countless people to find out about the lives and final resting places of the people who are important to them. Please keep up the excellent work.

Like many of you, I came here to search for information on my ancestors and relatives and to share what I have learned with others. I am working to write hundreds of short biographies about them. We can honor those who came before us by keeping the memories of them alive in written records, and when possible, photographs and images, to be passed on to the coming generations. We can make their names live forever.

I try to use the best available sources for information, consulting original documents whenever possible, and secondary sources (undocumented, as for example, relatives of the person, who have relied on memory) when original documents are not available. If you have access to original documents or copies of them, such as certificates of birth, military records, marriage licenses, certificates of death, registers/registries, obituaries, news articles, or other documents or records, please let me know, and if possible, email copies of them to me. With one exception, I do not post copies of Certificates of Death and Registers of Deaths to Find A Grave memorials, even though it is allowed by the website administrators, because many people prefer to think of the deceased person's life and do not want to be reminded of how he or she died; however, I do have copies of these documents for some of my relatives, and I can send copies by email for people to use in genealogical research and in writing biographies. The more information we share with each other, the better, because it will allow people to learn about their ancestors and relatives and other persons who have gone on before us - all of those amazing people who have made our lives and our civilization possible.

The one exception I have made about not posting Certificates of Death is for William David Givens (Find A Grave Memorial #131757719). I am unsure about how to read some of the handwriting on the document, so I have posted the document in the hope that someone else will examine it, and possibly may be able to understand what was meant.

I am happy to add links and information for the memorials I manage. Please use the "Edit" tab on the memorials to do this; you'll find that it is very easy to do after you have done it just once.

Permission is granted to copy and re-use the pictures and biographical information I have posted. You do not need to ask for permission in writing, and you do not need to ask for permission to mention me as a source of information. Everything I post on the Find A Grave Website is in the public domain and I do not claim copyright or other exclusive or restrictive rights to it; anyone can use it freely.

If you have Find A Grave memorials that you no longer want to manage, whether for persons related to me or not, please feel welcome to transfer the memorials to me, and I will manage them until relatives of the deceased persons make requests for the transfer of the memorials to them. If I can find information on the deceased persons, I will add it to the memorials.

If you are a Find A Grave contributor and you are adding information to memorials, if at all possible, please do not use abbreviations or obscure terms. For example, maybe you understand that d/o means "daughter of," but some people might have no idea what it means. Another example is the use of c., an abbreviation for circa - just type in the word "about," so that instead of "m. c. 1820" you type "married in about 1820" which is immediately clear in meaning even to most people with a limited understanding of English. Keep in mind that memorials are seen not only by people like you in your part of the world, but by people all around the world and people of all ages and education levels, including amateur genealogists and school children; these people should be able to easily understand the information in memorials because it should be fully written out in Standard English.

You can contact me by leaving a public message on this website or by sending a private message to me at my email address below. Thank you, and have the best imaginable day.

RE: Simeon Freeman
Sorry it is not a better picture but it is very overgrown and I am terrified of snakes. I will return in the fall for a better picture, now that I have uncovered the cemetery's location.

Thank you - all I did so far was to find his burial place and enter the facts. It's the first step, isn't it? :)

No, I'm not related and I'm happy to transfer your relative's memorial to you.

Any others you find, go right ahead and go through the 'edit' tab to send me the request, as that makes it way easier...your contributor info is right there. :)

Have a great week!

re George Z. Taylor
Hello Mr. Taylor! I hope this finds you well. I received the notification of your photo request for his grave and wanted to share with you the following information:

1. Don't know if you were aware of this, but an online cemetery index of Spring Cemetery is available at Once there, go to "Go to CVAHS main menu", then go to "Cemetery Index", then click on Spring Cemetery.

2. That online index lists his mother's name as Mary for some reason.

3. Plot information for Mr. Taylor's grave (264 #5) is listed on that index if you would like to add that to his memorial.

4. There are two Taylor's listed in the same area as George. One is 264 #1 and the other is 264 #3. No other information, such as first names, dates of birth, or ages are given. But they are in the same section so it is possible they are related to George.

I am not related to the Taylor's but have been to that cemetery in the past and have found that online index to be very helpful. The cemetery is not close to me but I may make it back out there at some point. When/if I do go I would be happy to look for your Mr. Taylor.

I have found this website to be very helpful in my genealogical pursuits and have been helped many times by the kindness of others who had information and were willing to share. I hope this small bit of information helps in some way in your family research.

Happy hunting and Happy Easter!

Kind regards,
