  1. Taylor Family Record, in Nettie (Wilson) Hamstra and Verda (Hamstra) Goudzwaard. Family Records. (Compiled in 1973 - unpublished).

    "John A. Taylor
    born April 3, 1836 in Detroit, Mich."

  2. Company I - from Ottawa county [1], in The Third Michigan Infantry Research Project [2].
  3. Chauncey Brewer, James Monroe, John Abram and Martin Van Buren Taylor [3], in Men of the 3rd Michigan Infantry [4].

    "John was shot in the right shoulder on May 2, 1863, at the battle of Chancellorsville, Virginia, the bullet exiting near the upper part of his arm."

    The reported earlier relationship between John Abram Taylor and Jane Ann Waters, and the daughter Harriet Amelia Taylor, have not been confirmed. In the 1860 census Jana A and Harriet A Taylor are recorded living with Alvah Taylor (born in Massachusetts) at Crockery, Ottawa, Michigan. In 1863 Jane Ann Waters married Willis Ford. These facts do not appear consistent with the reported relationship between John Abram Taylor and Jane Ann Waters.
