Hi.I don't know anything about Phil or Nathaniel Traylor, but I thought you might like a suggestion. What I would do first is order the Social Security applications for Phil and Nathaniel Traylor.This should provide information such as where and when they were born, both parents' names, and where they were working at the time they applied for the Social Security number.
I just went to the Social Security Death Index website on Rootsweb and found listings for both Nathaniel Traylor and Phil Traylor, so this should be easy to do for these twoindividuals.
Then put the name in the search field and press submit.When your listing appears on the screen, click on "SS-5 Letter".What will then appear is a letter that you can print out and mail to the SSA asking them to send you a copy of the application for that particular individual.Note that you need to send a check for $7 for each request.
Another good way to find out more information about these individuals is to send for a copy of their death record from the state where they died.A good website with information on ordering vital records is:
