Col. Richard Taylor was a gentleman of culture and colonel of the 9th Virginia Regiment during the Revolution. Soon after the termination of hostilities he moved from Virginia to Jefferson county, Ky., with his family. They had several children.

Their son, Zachary Taylor, Jr., was born in Orange county, Virginia, in 1786, and was an officer in the U. S. Army, distinguishing himself during the struggle with Mexico, which service made him available to the Presidency, to which position he was elected, but the duties of the office were so taxing that he died before the expiration of his term.

He married Margaret Smith and their son, Richard Taylor, was a lieutenant general in the Confederacy, and skillfully and ably distinguished himself during the Rebellion.

Other children of Col. Richard Taylor and Sarah Strother were Hancock, Wm. Dabney, George, Richard, Joseph P., Elizabeth, Sarah and Emily, all of whom have many descendants in Kentucky and other Southern states, who are prominent in social, political and business circles. This ends the line of Wm. Strother of "Orange" and Sarah Pannill.
