I have hit a road block on finding information of Taylor Tanner (1881). I know his mothers name was Nellie (1856) and she married William Turner(1871) before 1900. I don't know her maiden name or his biological father. Also I found where he had 2 children, Allen (1901) and Stacy (1903) but Moses O'Field took guardianship of them in 1907. In the 1910 US Census, his family consists of him, his wife Mary Ann (Mitchell) and a son Eucha (1905) and he filed for an allotment in 1908 but that is the last I can find on Eucha. I can't even find a grave for him. If anyone has any information for me I would appreciate it very much.

You are looking for information about my family. Nellie Tanner is my great great paternal grandmother. Join a Facebook site called Cherokee Indians Research + Genealogy when you do tag me JoAnna Jaden Cottle. Someone can help you. I have an old photo of Taylor n my great grandpa Samuel Tanner in baseball uniforms from 1906

One of the people who left "flowers" at the Findagrave memorial is his great-great granddaughter. Maybe contact her through findagrave to see if she knows any other information?
Thank you! I sent her a message. Hopefully she can fill in some blank spots.

Below is the 1910 census and death record for Taylor's brother Samuel.  And a record that lists the parents of who appears to be their half-brother Charles.  Their father's name is listed as Aaron( Allen) Tanner.  I see tree's that list Nellie's surname as Rabbit, but no records to support this.  Charles' mother is listed as Mary (possibly "Bird or Youngbird").
