I am trying to learn the identity of the father of Lottie Taylor who married David M. Mefford (I have record of their marriage). She was born in VA and died before 1802, possibly in KY. I have a copy of court action that says David Mefford was dead by 1802 and left 3 orphans--Sally, David and Thomas. There is no mention of a wife.
I have found two short bios of their grandsons--Leonidas D Mefford (born 1832 in KY) of Illinois and Dr. Walter T Mefford (born 1844 in KY) of Kansas City, Missouri. They both claim that the father of Lottie(Taylor) Mefford was a cousin of Pres. Zachary Taylor.
Some claim Lottie's parents were Sarah (Best) and Joseph Taylor (1751-1818). But their daughter Charlotte Taylor was born in 1815 and married someone else.
