bullet  General Notes:


Aunt Betsey Taylor (nee Austin) was born in MONTGOMERY COUNTY, MARYLAND NOVEMBER 27, 1807. In May 1816 her father moved to Kentucky, and on the 10th day of Jan. 1828, she married to MR. BLACKSTONE TAYLOR of OHIO CO. by Rev. WILLIAM HART. She professed religion at a camp meeting at Old Bethel, and joined the Methodist Church with her husband at that place, where their membership remained until the church at Liberty was organized, when she and her husband were among the first to enroll their names with the Liberty class, where they remained consistent members until death. Sister Taylor died July the28th 1888, her husband having proceeded her to the better land about fifteen years. Their home was always a house in which the preachers received a warm welcome, and frequently during the winter season the regular monthly services were conducted under their roof. They were careful to impress their children with the truths of the christian religion, both by precpt an example and as a result, they became religious early in life and united with the church of their parents. Sister Taylor was the mother of ten children, six daughters and four sons, four of their children died young, five are now living in Ohio co. and one in the state of Texas. I was her pastor the two last years of her life
when I called to see her I was always received a warm welcome and always found her calm, patient and trustful. Her last illness was very brief of only a few days duration,and she said from the first she would not recover, she seemed to feel that she was summoned to depart, and met
the summons with perfect composure. So like the sun sinking calmly from sight at the close of the day, her useful life disappeared behind the vail of mortality, to come forth again in the glorious splendor of immortality on the reserrection morn. On account of personal illness I was not present at her funeral service. The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. G. J. Bean of Liberty Church in the presence of a large concourse of reliatives and friends.


Elizabeth married Blackstone Taylor, son of Richard Taylor and Dorcas Tarleton. (Blackstone Taylor was born on 28 Dec 1806, died on 21 Apr 1870 in Ohio County, Kentucky and was buried in Old Liberty Cemetery, Beaver Dam, Ohio County, Kentucky.)
