Searching for additional information about Great-great grandmother

I would like to be able to find the proof before changing Georiga's maiden name to Taggart. The information that I do have is on her profile. I have been told that she was a Taggart (or any variation of the spelling to include McTaggart and MacTaggart). From other searches done by my immediate family, Georgia's family could have been forcibly sent to Brown County, Indiana, around 1653/4. I do not have much more information other than her first name, her husband and three children (one of whom is my Great-grandfather).

Best to create profiles for all three children.  Add the 1900, 1910, 1920, 1930, 1940 census for all of them.  Look for their marriage, military and death records and anything else that you might find.  If the children died in California it will have their mother's last name on the death record.  Also California marriage records have information about the parents as well.  Good luck!
Indiana did not exist in 1653/54
As a Taggart descendant and researcher I can tell you Brown County is a hot bed of Taggarts. Also, Los Angeles is where the patriarch of my Taggart line went after Oregon and he met his second wife Sarah Casey.

Lots of DNA matches on his profile to compare to.
Have you or any of your family taken DNA tests?

If so I have tons of tests to compare them to to help you do more research.
As far as I know, Lance, no one in my family has taken a DNA test. Unfortunately, I have not been able to convince my parents or siblings to do so. I haven't done one yet, but hope to be able to do so in the not-too-distant future.
