Taylor, a former Union township man, and an uncle of Ed. Taylor and his sisters of this city, which occurred at Los Angeles, California.

Taylor who resides in Uniopolis at the present time. He was for many years, a teamster in the eastern part of the county and about twelve years ago moved to Lima with his family.
