PLACE OF WEDDING: She has in her own writing that she was married Grace Hill. Now have the wedding certificate. . According to the Marriage Certificate, she was married at home, by the Moravian Church minister from Grace Hill Church. Her name was spelled Huldah Beatty. Note Huldah with an H and Beatty with two t's. . The Grace Hill church is a national landmark, but that is not where they were married. I have been there and taken photographs. It is somewhat a mystery why a family that from all appearances (and even references in their obituaries) were good Methodists, but still used a Moravian minister for her marriage and her parents were buried in a Moravian cemetery.

NAME. Her mothers letter to her spelled Hulda with an "H" on the end. But, the letter was transcribed by a nephew, and Lucy spelled it without an H. Most of the letters show Beaty with one "t".

PIONEER CERTIFICATE: I have obtained a Pioneer Certificate from the Washington County, Iowa Genealogical Society for Edwin and Hulda (Beaty) Taylor. It required the submission of source documents proving my descent from them and their residency in Iowa before 1897. These documents are on file with the Washington Co, IA Genealogical Society for perpetuity (I hope!).

CENSUS 1910 Jamestown City, Cloud Co, KS. ED 23, SD 5, Pg 10B. Counted May 9/10, 1910.

Taylor, Hulda H F 65 WV WV WV Mutt, George B M 24 IA OH OH Russel, Hugh B M 20 IN IN IN

B = Boarder. Shows she had 6 children born, 5 living. I think under "occupation" it showed the boarders as "painters". That's what it looks like, anyway. Her daughter, Sara Myrtle (Aunt "Pim") is one page before her entry, in the census.)

COURTHOUSE BURNED: Inquiry to the County Clerk's Office of Preston Co, WV, indicates the courthouse burned in the year 1869, destroying all records. They have no records prior to that date.

OBITUARY. Either the Concordia Blade or Jamestown Kansas Optimist. Approximately May 7, 1911: "Hulda Beaty-Taylor was born in Kingwood County, WV, September 8, 1844, and passed away in Jamestown, May 4th, 1911, and was interred in Fairview Cemetery May 7th, where she lies at rest by the side of her husband.

She moved with her parents to Iowa at the age of nine years. In 1874, she was united in marriage to Edwin M. Taylor and the same year they came to Kansas and began their wedded life on a place Mr. Taylor had homesteaded two years before, about five miles west of Concordia. In 1878, they moved to their farm five miles south-east of Jamestown, where they resided until his death about five years ago.

To them six children were born, four sons and one daughter (**editor's note: should be two daughters**) The oldest son Willie died at the age of one year and six months. The children who remain are George and Robert, of Graham County, Fred, who lives on the home farm, and Aurie McBride and Myrtle McRae, both of Jamestown.

She united with the M. E. church at an early age and always remained in it, a faithful and consistent member. She was a member of the W.R.C. and W.C.T.U. for over 25 years.

An injury received January 6th of this year, caused by falling on an icy porch, finally resulted fatally. Through her long and very painful illness she was very patiently resigned to her Master's will, ready to go if He called.

Besides the relatives, a large concourse of friends attended the funeral services, where there was sincere mourning for the loss of one who had proven so true and faithful a friend to all.

Rev. S. L. Semans conducted the funeral services in his usual and impressive and thoughtful manner. His subject: "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord" says John the Revelator, "that they may rest from their labors, and their works do follow them." He gave the progressive stages through which her life had passed from childhood to old age, showing how it had broadened and deepened, having greater influence not only for time, but also reaching out to eternity. He also gave an urgent plea for the living to follow in her footsteps.

The W. C. T. U. held very appropriate services at the home, a service of love and respect for this departed sister, also of sympathy for those left to mourn for her.

The W. R. C. of Concordia, attended the service at the church and conducted the burial services at the grave.

The floral offerings of the friends were beautiful and were beautifully arranged.

The large attendance at the services attested very forcibly to the fact of the esteem in which Mrs. Taylor was held in this community. Her memory will be as a guiding star, we trust, to lead many onward and upward. Surely, "Blessed are they which die in the Lord."
