Seeking biographical information (for historical purposes) for J.P. Taylor, one of the signatories on the 1838 petition to create De Kalb College, in Red River County, Texas. (De Kalb is now located in Bowie County.) We are attempting to assemble biographical information for all the signatories, to be used in county history. It is believed that this J.P. Taylor and Joseph Taylor (of the 1850 Federal census-Red River County) may be the same person. Joseph Taylor (of 1850 census) was forty-one-years-old, and was born in Kentucky; He had three children:Daniel, age 8; Millard, age 6; and Ellen, age 3. It is also believed that J.P. Taylor (and Joseph of 1850) may have been the Joseph P. Taylor who died in Red River County, Texas, in the early 1850s. Any help would be appreciated very much. Thank you.
