In Reply to: Kaylor/Caylor in Montgomery County Ohio by Cindy Caylor of 763

The ancestor of this family, John Caylor, came from Germany in 1763. After working three years, to pay for his passage across the ocean, he married Magdalena Barnhart and settled in Botetourt County, Virginia. To them were born five sons and four daughters. Then the home was broken by the death of the mother. John Caylor was married a second time, to Salome Kinsey. He moved West and settled in the Miami Valley, Ohio. His son, Elias, is said to be the first white child born west of the Miami River. Two other sons, Michael and Abraham, will be noticed in this account.
Elias Caylor was born May 22, 1805, near Dayton, Ohio. The country was new, with but few advantages for education, though young Caylor acquired both the art of reading and writing. In December, 1825, he married Sarah Umberger. EXCERPT FROM BOOK: History of the Church of the Brethren of Indiana" by Otto Winger circa 1917
