At this time I have no information about James Taylor.
Caswell is east of Rockingham and Orange is south of Caswell. It's less than 40 miles from the county seats of Rockingham and Orange.
James H. Pass and Eleanor Allen were my 2nd great grandparents. I have just recently been able to determine who Eleanor's parents and grandpartent were. "Family Tradition" is that James H. Pass of Rhea County, TN was the son of James H. Pass Sr of White County, TN, but he almost certainly wasn't and I'm currently trying to find some association between the Pass and/or Allen and/or Collins families before 1844.
