Farmer. Prominent among the agriculturists of the county is Judge
Taylor, who resides on an excellent farm, two and a half miles north-
east of Keytesville. Like many of the more progressive and intelli-
gent farmers of the county, he, too, is a native of Kentucky,where he
was reared, and afterwards lived for a number of years. He was born
near Augusta, in Bracken county, on the 14th of Septenber, 1821 ,
and was the eldest of a family of nine children, four of whom are
living, of Joseph and Elizabeth ( Heaverin ) Taylor, the father origi-
nally of Maryland, the mother born and reared in the same house
where the Judge first saw the light. The father died in 1866; the
mother twenty-six years before, in 1842. Judge Taylor was reared
on his father's farm, and at the age of twenty-three, on the 29th of
August. 1844, was married to Miss Deautha M. Day, originally of
Ohio. He followed farming in his native county for six years after
his marriage, and in 1850 removed to Missouri, and engaged in the
milling business at Brunswick, this county. Two years afterwards
he went on a farm on the fork of the Chariton River, where he lived
eleven years, engaged in farming. As a farmer he was then, as he is
now, very successful, and soon became recognized as one of the lead-
ing agriculturists and prominent citizens of the county. It was during
this time he was elected a Judge of the Chariton county court,
serving from 1858 to 1860, Judges Snyder and McFaren being his
associates. The condition of affairs were such in 1863 that Judge
Taylor returned to Kentucky, and he continued to reside there until
1874. He then came back to Missouri, and lived in Huntsville until
1875, when he bought and moved on his present farm. Here he has
200 acres of fine land, and devotes his attention principally to raising
wheat, corn and tabacco. Judge and Mrs. Taylor have a family of
three children : Thomas B., Artemas Day, and Anna E. All these
are married. Anna is the wife of Robert Brummel, near Salisbury.
Both parents are members of the New Hope Baptist Church, and
Judge Taylor has been a member of the Masonic order for nearly
thirty years.
