He is shown in the following photo in about 1912 with his first wife Georgia [1878-1918] and their children. Georgia died just a couple weeks shy of her 40th birthday. She looks older than 40 in this photo, doesn't she? Life was hard.
|William T. Taylor Sr seen at right|
William Thomas Taylor was born July 15, 1870 in Alabama. he died on the 16th of May in 1951 at age 80 years and 10 months. His father was named Richard Thomas Taylor [1845-1932] and was also from Alabama. His mother's name was Elizabeth Lucy Suggs Taylor [1850-1927].
From many accounts I've heard from good sources that William T. was not the nicest man in the world by any means. And he's not in my family line, so why would I write about him and put his picture here? Well he was not my father's birth father, but he was the father my father knew. So, good or bad, he had a part in making my father the man he was. We also don't know his story. What's the deal with his hands? Clearly he had a rough life, and we need to know his entire story and try not to judge.
