I have found an error on James Earl Jones's wife. I am Lenore Haynes Jones's niece and Lenore was born on 6/9/1926. She is several years younger than Uncle Earl as we all call him. Also you have Susan Emaline Foster listed as being 1 of Wiliam Foster's children. She was not 1 of his children. Susie was my grandmother and her father was Isaiah Jacob Foster & her mother was Delia Foster. She however did marry Christopher Columbus Haynes. She was born 11/14/1895 & died 4/6/1982.

Hope this helps.

Research is promising on William Taylor's parents. Possibly a 'Clayborn Taylor" in Tennessee. Ongoing research is looking very promising, along with Clayborn's parents and grandparents' history, as well. We'll see!
BTW, the William Thomas Taylor that I am speaking of is pictured in Book 1 of The History Of Stone County. He married Anna Isabella Owens.
