Does anyone have any information on a John A. Taylor born in Washington County, Al and lived in Greene County, MS

+3 votes
He married a Mary E. Jordan and she passed away in 1917. He had two children - James A. and Elma Taylor. He boarded a train in the late 1800's and was never seen again. I'm trying to see if he had any brothers, cousins anything to help get past this brick wall.  We have no idea of a birth date or death.  Thank you Debra

John A Taylor

Marriage record:

"Alabama Marriages, 1816-1957," database, FamilySearch ( : 9 February 2018), J. A. Taylor and Mary E. Jordan, 24 Sep 1884; citing reference ; FHL microfilm 1293900 V. A-D.

The 1880 Census showed only one John Taylor in Washington County:

"United States Census, 1880," database with images, FamilySearch ( : 12 August 2017), John Taylor in household of Marion Taylor, Beat 1, Washington, Alabama, United States; citing enumeration district ED 178, sheet 126D, NARA microfilm publication T9 (Washington D.C.: National Archives and Records Administration, n.d.), roll 0034; FHL microfilm 1,254,034.

I couldn't find this family in 1860 or 1870.

Thank you Herbert, so apparently they lived in another part of Alabama before 1880. I'll have to do more digging... thank you again.

Thanks for the star, Pip!  smiley

Thousands of domain names expire every day.

The reasons are different - Some owners forgot to renew the domains, some just don't want them anymore or they moved on to other projects. For most people these so called Expired Domains don't have any value. They just see a bunch of Domain Names someone else deleted and move on, but for the people who know about SEO or the value of good Backlinks, Expired Domain Names are money just waiting to get picked up from the street.

The reasoning behind purchasing an expired domain is that it will still have all of its previous ranking power and SEO value, which can be used in several ways.For example, a domain that has been around for a decade and has many backlinks will usually have a lot of link juice that can be utilized.  Use this domain as your new site and you will benefit from the existing SEO value giving you a much needed headstart in the SEO game.
