An American Family History

The Taylor Family

Ancestors of Louisa Taylor Long

Louisa Taylor Long's ancestors were living in Pennsylvania by 1784. They migrated to Green County, Ohio and then to Shelby County. Shortly after the family arrived, her grandfather, David Taylor, died and all the family's possesions were sold at auction to pay debts. Her father, Jacob Taylor, was a triplet. He moved the family to Warren County, Iowa.
