Eula Lee Taylor was the eldest daughter of William John Taylor and Nancy Edna (Woodham) Taylor, and the third child born into their family of eleven total children.

The below noted story was told by Dozier Wilson Taylor, at the age of 92, in November of 1996 (86 years after Eula Lee had passed away), during a visit to see him in Plant City, by Lessie Mae (Taylor) Meadows, one of Dozier's and Eula's younger sisters, and Lessie's eldest granddaughter. Lessie's granddaughter asked him what the cause of death was for Eula Lee and he replied with the following story:
"The two older boys, Lonnie and Ed, paired up to play together and Eula Lee and I were then play partners. She was my big sister and was two years older than me. I remember she had the most beautiful singin' voice and could memorize her songs from the Sacred Harp songbook with great ease. She'd pull me down onto the floor to sing along with her from the book and when I wouldn't sing along with her, she'd yell for Papa. [chuckle] She was a very friendly and happy child, she'd talk to anyone. I remember one time when she went missin' and Mama had to go and look for her. She was down at a neighbor's house. Mama walked in and she was just sittin' as pretty as you please, talkin' and visitin' with them. I remember her havin' the fits and Papa takin' her by wagon to different doctors tryin' to get her well. The day she died the men were all out working in the woods, cuttin' down trees. Grandma Woodham [Nancy Edna (Woodham) Taylor's mother, Sarah Ann Elizabeth (Wiggins) Woodham] was there with her in the house. She ran out on the porch and started yellin' for help. She died from the fits at the young age of 8-1/2." [*Assumption- "fits" was a seizure of some sort.]

On the drive home, after hearing the above noted story from her brother, Dozier, Lessie Mae (Taylor) Meadows stated, "I'm glad you asked Dozier about Eula Lee. She died in 1910, four years before I was born and I always wondered what had happened to her. They never spoke of her and I never asked because it was such a sad subject to talk about."
