John Taylor    

JOHN TAYLOR, farmer, post-office Sandy Lake, was born August 4, 1821, in New Jersey, to Thomas and Anna (Elick) Taylor, the father being a native of England and the mother of New Jersey. The parents both died in New Jersey, and the father was a carpenter by trade. They had six children: John, Hugh E., Mary, Eli, Ufamy, married Isaiah Bell, and Maurice H., painter. The parents attended the Lutheran Church. Our subject was educated in the common schools. His father died when he was eighteen years old, and he had to work to support the family. They drove from New Jersey, and a part of the wagon and the buggy in which they came is yet in their possession. In 1856 he came to Mercer County and bought about eighty-five acres, then in the woods. He erected a log cabin, a portion of which now stands. He has since built good frame buildings. In 1848 he married Susan, a daughter of David Heggar, of New Jersey. By this union he has one child, Isabella, who married William Bailey, a physician of East Liverpool, Ohio. He assisted in the defense of his country by hiring a substitute in the late war. Mr. Taylor manages his own farm, and is a quiet, unassuming man, who attends strictly to his own business, pays his honest debts and enjoys the fruits of his early days’ labor.
