There is a Kaylor Family Bible that exists that I have seen. The last person that wrote in this Bible was Joseph Stamper Kaylor, who is the grandson of John Kaylor and Jemima Barker and the son of Thomas Kaylor and Sarah Fullen. He wrote that he had received this Bible from his father Thomas and gave the date of his birth in 1821. Thomas had received it from his father John and listed his date of birth as 1788. John received it from Abraham, but his date of birth was listed prior to 1700 like 1650 or so. It was greater than 100 years prior to the birth of John. The Bible also says that Abraham Falls in Washington County was named after this Abraham.
First of all, I wondered if this date was an error and should have been 1750. Secondly, I have never found any records of a Abraham Kaylor born prior to 1800 in Washington County, Virginia or any other parts of Virginia, Maryland or Pennsylvania.
You indicated in Genforum of a Abraham Kaylor born in Virginia in 1799 and his father Abraham Kaylor born in Virginia in 1740. Could you please share with me the source of this information because it is fantastic info.
Please answer because I am a very serious genealogist and have been looking for this info for over 6 years.
Also, FRank Kaylor mentioned his ancestry from a Frederick Kaylor. There was a Frederick Kaylor owning land in the Kingsport, Tennessee area on the Holston River prior to 1800. ALso living on the Holston River across the border in Washington County, Virginia were John, DAniel and Elizabeth Kaylor who were all born prior to 1800. I have assumed that they were siblings and possibly related this this Frederick.
