Descendants of

Claiborne W. Taylor

Sarah (Woolum) Taylor


Claiborne W. Taylor
son of
Jacob "Isaac" & Rhoda (Smith) Taylor
b: 17 Nov 1823 Clay Co, KY
d: 18 Jun 1918
m: Sarah "Sally" Woolum
daughter of
Jacob & Sarah Anice (Hughes) Woolum
b: 19 Feb 1828 Harlan Co, KY
d: 13 Mar 1895

from Cuz Glenn Perry
Claiborne & Sarah (Woolum) Taylor
bought their homeplace,
from James & Mary Cole,
on March 6, 1858.
It is safe to assume (unless there is evidence to
the contrary)
that all the children born after
the 1858 date of purchase were born there ---
at Tedders, KY (although not called that yet).
I assume that Grandpap planted his first crop
there as soon as he bought the land. We know from
the 1860 census that the family certainly lived
there by that time - and that the 68-year old
patriarch, Isaac (born NC), lived with them.

    m: WALLACE G. GILBERT, on 08 May 1874, in Knox Co, KY
    son of Wallace W. &Susan(Jones)Gilbert
    b: 08 Apr 1842 Richland Creek, Knox Co, KY
    d: 18 Aug 1887
    Aunt Pop's year-of-birth is shown on her tombstone as 1849 in error.
    Her brother, Isaac, was born in February-1850, so 1849 would leave
    too few months between them. The 1860 Census (taken on June 12, 1860)
    lists Aunt Pop as 12 years old (she would turn 13 on December 10, 1860).

    from Cuz Glenn Perry
    Mary Jane "Pop" Taylor
    is sometimes listed, by mistake, as Polly Taylor.
    Even an 1860 census listed her as "Polly," but
    her family and relatives never called her that.
    She was "Aunt Pop," and even her son, Sam Gilbert,
    was referred to by the old people as "Sam Pop,"
    to distinguish him from other people named Sam Gilbert!
    Wallace and Aunt Pop both are buried at the Gilbert
    Cemetery on top of the mountain overlooking the former
    estate of the elder Wallace Gilbert, on Big Richland
    Creek, just as the creek branches off to Mt. Ararat
    in one direction and Tedders on the other.
    The above dob's and dod's were copied from their tombstones.

    b: 25 Dec 1855 Clay Co, KY
    d: 1871
    buried: Taylor Cemetery, Blackwater, Laurel Co, KY

    from Cuz Glenn Perry
    Ever wonder about a person's name like Arkansas?
    The tradition that I heard as a child
    (from the people who took care of Clayborn "Grandpap" in his old age)
    is that her father made a trip to Arkansas before she was born
    - and thus the reason for her name. Interesting, in light
    of the fact that his brother later migrated to Arkansas.
    By the way, the name was pronounced like the state of Kansas,
    but with the "ar" prefixing it ... "ar-KAN'-ziz."
    Buried at the Taylor Cemetery at Blackwater.

    Jake and both his wives are buried side-by-side at the
    Taylor Cemetery, in Blackwater, KY. A single headstone:

    The home of Uncle Jake
    (and later of Ant'ny and Laurie),
    at the mouth of Knocking Rock Holler,
    Tedders, Knox Co, KY.
    Photo was taken in June 2001.
    Look carefully and you can see the
    hewn logs where the boards are missing.
    The top part of the chimney has fallen.
    I couldn't get a close-up photo because of
    weeds and snakes, and (so I was told)
    a nest of bobcats!
