The Pinewoods Plantation in Wakulla County, Florida

William Newton Taylor I and his wife, Elizabeth Grice Taylor, moved around from one plantation to another over a period of years. Apparently William was hired as a manager by the plantation owners. Elizabeth kept a detailed journal of their movements, and also documented births and deaths of their slaves.

The Pinewoods Planation appears to have been located in Shell Point, Wakulla, County, Florida. The only records found regarding its existence comes from Elizabeth Taylor's journal.
