Correction. Looking for information about Taylor family in Sevier County TN

+6 votes
The DNA results from reveals that I am descended from James Taylor (b. 1760 VA D Blount County TN). My maternal ggrandmother Mary Taylor Ward was born January 1851 in TN. Her death certificate states her parents were William Taylor and Mary McGills. According to some sources they lived in the Marryville/Walland area of Sevier County TN,. Mary's father  operated a bank there at some point and  lived in a house with a brick lined drive with columns and had  servants.  The family had relatives who lived in GA and someone from that family might have served with a Georgia Unit at the battle of Antietam.

My grandfather George Ward was born in 1888 in TN the year before she married his father William Alexander "Kirk" Ward in Jackson County NC. They remained in NC and went on to have five more children. She was apparently quite a bit older than her  husband, some sources say as much as ten years older.

Any help at all would be appreciated. Thank you.
