I have had no luck finding the parents of Dudley Taylor. He is my 4th great grandfather. He was born 1 Dec 1784 in Virginia, possibly Halifax or Albemarle County. He traveled to Washington County, Kentucky and married Nancy Jane Lawson in 1812. He fought in the war of 1812. He had 4 of his children in Kentucky, then moved into Indiana about 1821. Land deeds for acreage in Decatur show purchases in 1823, 1824, and 1835. He had 4 more children in Indiana. He died 31 Aug 1855 in LaPorte, Indiana and was buried in St Joseph County, Indiana. Many others related to him list his father as Rev. John Taylor but no proof is given and John's son Benjamin Taylor was born earlier in 1784...so highly unlikely. Any help in breaking this brick wall would be greatly appreciated!
