Calling all John Taylor Descendants

Did you know that November 6, 2008 will mark the 200th birthday anniversary for President John Taylor? At least I was told it was the 6th but on the Ancestral File it says his birthday was November 1st 1808. Anyways, the point is - the descendants of President John Taylor, the third President of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, are planning a 200th birthday anniversary commemoration.

The commemoration for John Taylor's 200th birthday will be held in the Assembly Hall on Temple Square on Thursday, November 6, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. The featured speakers will be Elder L. Tom Perry of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and wife Barbara T. Dayton Perry (gg granddaughter).

The services will include a tribute to Duane Cardall and an audio-visual presentation on the life of President Taylor.

From the Ancestral File the President John Taylor Family Association has obtained the names of 2,800 descendants. About one-third of them are no longer alive. A majority have no known addresses. If you are or know of a John Taylor descendant it is requested that you contact Lee Cox at so they can have an accurate accounting of all his descendants.

It is requested that when you contact Lee Cox that you include in your email which wife of John Taylor's you are descended through.
  • Leonora Cannon
  • Elizabeth Kaighan
  • Jane Ballantyne
  • Mary Anne Oakley
  • Sophia Whitaker
  • Harriet Whitaker
  • Margaret Young
They are also requesting the names of your grandparents, your physical address, email address and phone number.

Please forward this information on to anyone that might be interested.
