Hi again, Laura

I had some free time this evening and I was intrigued by your family story, so I checked Heritage Quest (a free service through my library that carries some, but not all census data).

The 1870 Cooper county census shows Milton and Elizabeth having sons Albert and Willie, but also daughters Amanda (11 years old) and Alice May or Allice May (4 months old)

The 1880 Cooper County census shows Mandy as being 18, Alice May being 10 and then, in addition to Albert and William, it shows an additional 7 year old son. His first name is not well written...something like Oby or Oly...perhaps Aby or Aly?? I'm not sure. Middle name Lee.

Those were the only census reports I could access. I did notice an Amanda Taylor Stewart buried in New Lebanon who might be Williams sister, but I can't be sure. She was only 27 when she died in 1887. If she was Williams sister, that leaves Alice May as the sister you were looking for.

I hope this helps you in your search!

Good Luck!

As you are very new here, you may not realize that you can request memorials be transferred to you. If you want to do that, just send a message through the edit tab and suggest a correction link. The creator of the memorial can transfer or not, depending on what you tell them about your relationship to the deceased/reason for wanting the memorial. None of these Taylors are related to me. They were simply added when I updated the listins for an entire cemetery. (My way of giving back to Find A Grave for all the info I've gotten from people who took a minute to add some of my relatives.)

RE: William Taylor
I think maybe you have something confused, if I understand your last message correctly.
Ethel Wolfe Taylor Clark would not have been a sister of William Taylor if her maiden name was Wolfe....or perhaps I misunderstood what you were saying. I checked her memorial here on FindaGrave and it appears she was born in 1892, while William was born in 1867 or 1868. Although that doesn't preclude them being brother and sister, it seems unlikely.

William Taylor
I'm not sure that I'm reading your message correctly, but I'll try to answer it as I read it.

If you mean that William Taylor was your great-grandfather, then you must have a question about Alfred Taylor being William's brother.

Alfred's death certificate says he was the son of Milton Taylor and Elizabeth Woolery and he was killed when an engine of the MKT ran over him.

You can view that certificate on the state's death certificate website, specifically, here:

William's death certificate also states he was the son of Milton Taylor and Elizabeth Woolery, and that he died of pernicious anemia. It can be viewed here:

If that isn't what you are asking, let me know with a few more specifics. It would be helpful if you would send questions about a specific person by using the edit tab and then the suggest a correction link. That way, the message I receive from you contains a link to the specific memorial you have a question about and I don't have to go hunting for it.

Hope this helps!
