Birth: 1805
Georgia, USA
Death: 1851
Texas, USA

Green Wooten Taylor was born in Georgia in about 1805, the son of John B. Taylor and Temperance Fullilove. He married Martha B. Taylor on April 8, 1832 in Montgomery County, Alabama. They had 4 children, Martin Junius Taylor born 1832, Temperence Taylor born 1834, Byron Ludwell Taylor born April 26, 1836 and Elizabeth (Eliza) Taylor born 1838. The children were all born Montgomery County, Alabama.

The family left for Texas in 1851, and Green became ill and died on a boat between Mobile and Galveston. His family took the body by buckboard to Danville, Texas, where he was buried at the Shepard Hill Methodist Cemetery beneath 100 bricks made from Alabama clay that were used as ballast on the ship from Mobile to Galveston. The family eventually settled in Polk County.

Around 1940, Martin Junius Taylor Sr. commissioned his son, Martin Jr. to locate the cemetery so that a proper marker could be placed at the gravesite. Using old records located in Danville and Conroe, Texas, the grave was identified and a marker was placed at the site during the summer of 1942.

This biography was taken from the "Danville Cemetery" web site, created and maintained by Karen Lawless. The information was contributed by Casey Holscher, who is the contact person for the Green Wooten Taylor family research project. See "Danville Cemetery" web pages for additional information.
