Strother Cowgur/ MelvinaTaylor
All my life I had been told that we were related to Zachary Taylor but a cousin just sent me some information that says that we are not. I need some clarification on just who Melvina Taylor's father was. According to my mother her father was William Dabney Strouther Taylor and we did not know who her mother was. The new information says that her father was William Walton Taylor and that her name was Melvina Jane (Porter) Taylor. She says that she was a Porter by marriage or was raised by stepfather Taylor.
Melvina Jane (Porter) Taylor, born 28 February 1835 in Tennessee; died 21 October 1875 in Benton Co, AR; married Strother Cowgur, 02 November 1858 in Whitesboro, Grayson Co, TX, M.
Melvina and Strother Cowgur's daughter was Nola Belle Cowgur, b. 23 Jul 1868, Benton Co, AR d. 1956, m. George Washington Greenwood, 23 Jul 1882, Cimatia, Arkansas, b. ?, d. 09 Apr 1936
As you can see I have many holes but I hope this is enough for someone to see if they can help me with this.
Thank you in advance. Marilyn McKown
