  • John Taylor was the youngest child of James Taylor and his second wife Mary Gregory. His father died in April 1698 when John was only two years old. His mother Mary married Rowland Thomas within a few years, so he was raised by his stepfather. The Thomas household soon included 3 sons, so John grew up with older half-siblings, full siblings, and younger half-siblings.
  • In early 1716 about age 19 probably in King & Queen County, he married Catherine Pendleton. Since he was not yet of age, his mother and stepfather would have had to give their consent to the marriage. Catherine came from the prominent Pendleton family. John and Catherine had a large family of 11 children.
  • John died in 1780 at age 83 in Granville Co NC. His will, dated Mar 6 1780, Granville Co NC:
