Taylor County, Kentucky Biographies
Taylor County was established in 1848 out of a portion of Green County and was named for General Zachary Taylor, Mexican War hero and twelfth president of the United States from 1849 to 1850. The information on these biographies come from two sources, first History of Kentucky by Lewis Collins written in 1882 and secondly, KENTUCKY: A History of the State by W. H. Perin, J. H. Battle, and G. C. Kniffin written in 1885. The individual families included in these sketches submitted the materials on their own and so should be more accurate than other sources.
