1816 Arch Street, 9th Ward

1881-06-11; Paper: Philadelphia Inquirer
Mr. William Taylor, one of the oldest merchants of this city, died Wednesday morning. He was born near Hartfoird, Connecticut, in 1795, and was one of a family of five brothers and two sisters. With four of his brothers he came to Philadelphia in the beginning of the present century, and they severally engaged in business here. He and his brother George established a house on Front street, near Arch, for the importation and sale of tin plate and metals. They remained in this business mosstly all of their lives, and their house is still continued under the name of N. & G. Taylor Co, and ranks as one of the first business houses of the kind in this city. George Taylor, one of the members of the original firm, died about seventeen years ago, and his two sons succeed to the control of the business.
Mr. Taylor was a veteraan of the war of 1812. He was a thorough business man and a good citizen, an ardent Whig, and at one time a member of City Councils."
