Generation No. 3

3.  JAMES3 TAYLOR (WILLIAM2, JAMES1) was born February 28, 1730/31 in VA, and died April 4, 1815 in Grainger Co., TN.  He married NANCY ANN OWEN December 3, 1755, daughter of GEORGE OWEN and ELEANOR.  She was born September 25, 1738 in VA, and died April 12, 1814 in Grainger Co., TN.

Notes for JAMES TAYLOR:

After his military service in the Revolutionary War, he and his family lived in Henry County which was formed out of part of Pittsylvania County in 1776 and named for Patrick Henry.  The county seat is Martinsville.  There is a permit in the court records by which James Taylor gave his permission for his daughter to marry John May, dated June 27, 1778.

James Taylor bought a portion of the farm owned and lived on by Patrick Henry, and the Taylor family lived there until 1796, when James sold the farm to a man named Mullins.  James Taylor and his family moved to what was to become Grainger County, TN.

Eighteen years after they had moved to the new State of Tennessee, Ann Owen Taylor died.  She was buried at the family cemetery on the old homestead.  Not a year later, James Taylor died and was buried next to his wife.  In 1912, the James Taylor Memorial Association erected a monument to his grave.

UPDATE:   James Taylor and wife Nancy Ann Owen are buried in Bethesda Cemetery in Hamblen County.  See pictures of their tombstone.  My theory is that their graves were moved to Bethesda when Cherokee Lake was created, as it is documented that many graves were moved to Bethesda from Grainger County at that time.
