Thank you so much, Donna, for this information.It was very thoughtful of you to take the time.
Here was the John and Margaret Taylor family in 1850.
Census of 1850 Flatrock Township of Bartholomew Co., Indiana 655 662
John Taylor, age 51, laborer, born in Ky. Margaret, 43, also born in Ky Son Marcus L. Taylor, 15, born in Ind. Son Felix G. Taylor, 14 Martha C. Taylor, 11 Elizabeth Elener, 9 Son John A. Taylor, 7 Sarah L. Taylor, 5
So you are saying that John's wife Margaret was probably Margaret Carter?This is the first time that I have heard that
Marcus L. Taylor, also known as Mark L., or Lindsey, or Linzy, was the father of my grandmother, SarahE. Taylor Lamb.Grandmother was a young teenager when her father died.Sarah E. Taylor Lamb and her husband, Thomas Grant Lamb, left Vincennes, IN, after he returned from the Spanish American War in 1898.They were in Ripley Co., Mo., in 1900 and 1910, then across the line in Clay Co., AR, in 1920 and 1930.Sarah E. Taylor Lamb was widowed in 1937.
In the last years of her life, Rebecca Morgason, Marcason, Margison, ???, Taylor lived in and around Vincennes, Indiana.
The Morgason name is unique and is spelled many different ways.Rebecca's mother was named Elizabeth. I don't know her maiden name or the Morgason to whom Elizabeth was married.Perhaps the name "Lindsey" is a clue.
The widowed Elizabeth Marcason remarried to a Lewis, but died not long after.Rebecca and her brother Henry remained in the Lewis household when Lewis married again.It appears that Henry took the Lewis name.
In your position and access to records there, you may be able to add something to this.
