About Elizabeth Mewhirter

Elizabeth W. Dayton of Bedford, Indiana . "When I was a small child I was taught to say, - "Grandmother White was a Mewhirter; Grandmother Mewhirter was a Taylor; Grandmother Taylor was a Barr"."

Her parents b. Oh. and Pa. It is said that her Taylor's of Virginia

and supposingly in some way to the line of Zachary Taylor, President

of the U.S. no documentation has been presented and nor are the

parents of Elizabeth are known so can't go any further at this moment.

Saundra Carr: Just saw a copy of marriage record for Elizabeth B. Taylor and Robert McWherter in Pickaway Co OH. Didn't know the "B." was there. Could be Barr or could be Bray. I don't buy the Bray thing. but believe her father is Samuel Taylor who was in Coshocton OH 1820-30 census (can't remember) and Samuel Taylor who was school teacher in Pickaway Co in log school house very early, like 1820. And, she, of course, names first-born Samuel Taylor McWherter
