"I've been researching my grandmother, Ella Jane Harris Taylor, forever. I've hit a brickwall! Do you have any information? Any clues? Please post a comment here or send me a private message. I'd really appreciate it. Thank you!"

UPDATED REQUEST: I would appreciate any assistance to "clean up" Ella Jane Harris Long Taylor's profile, especially her biography.  There were so many instances in my maternal grandmother's family (including herself) where the girls/women had children out of wedlock and there are no records for them.  I have searched in NC Archives in the bastard children's records for birth information for Ella Jane Harris, whose father was a neighbor of her mother, Ollin/Ollen Long.  There are many good records of the Long family, but Ella Jane Harris is not included in them.  Ollin Long never married.  My father and three siblings were also born out of wedlock, and I cannot find birth records for them.  Thank you for any assistance.

There are places in the world where because of the lack of a church or not attending church people lived together and considered and still do consider themselves married.

Perhaps you have been in touch with the person who posted this?  They may have more information??

under this website North Carolina Digital Library you might have a look at the Bible records, sometimes people kept births, marriages, deaths in the family Bible without registering them, even after the government insisted children born at home often didn't have registered births.  

Good luck
