The John Taylor that purchased land on January 15, 1851 was the son of Frazier Taylor and Rebecca Sprague of Belmont County Ohio. He and his wife Hannah Mobley lived and died in Salt Creek, Jackson County Indiana.
Hannah Mobley had a brother Nelson Mobley that also purchased land at the sale in Jeffersonville, Indiana. The transaction on the same day January 15, 1851. Nelson Mobley married Nancy Taylor the niece of John Taylor Sr. Nancy was the daughter of Benjamin Taylor and Jane Calvert, Benjamin was John Taylor Sr.'s brother.
There was and earlier Taylor that lived in the area, his name was George Taylor, he was thought to be the son of John Taylor and Lucretia Southworth, this is unproven and a theory only. Nothing is known of George Taylor, and he could very well be the father of the John Taylor that married Almedia Mobley.
John Taylor that married Lucretia Southworth was the brother of Frazier Taylor that married Rebecca Sprague. It is believed that both of these families originated in Sussex County New Jersey.
I have often wondered about the Taylor and Mobley families that were in Henry County, Tennessee, but know nothing of the families. It would be very interesting if they were the same Taylor and Mobley families of the Bartholomew County area.
