My ancestor, Samuel Taylor, was born in New Jersey in 1779, but later lived in Canada. In fact, most of his children and his wife were reportedly born in Canada.. I don't know his parents' names, but given his birth year and later residence in Canada, I'm wondering if he might have been the offspring of loyalists. I have a loyalist ancestor in another line (not that I've figured out how to prove that), but I've never been able to learn a good way to research them, and having a Taylor ancestor is proving as problematic as my Smith or White ancestors. Do you have a Taylor loyalist in your line?
