  1.   Family Notes, in Sources needed.

    John went to Oklahoma and Price and Josie went with or after him. He "never worked a day in his life but he made a good living". He rented 80 acres of cotton - had a machine to pick cotton. John got out of farming at the depression and became a guard at the state prison - Oklahoma?

    I believe he was suppose to be in California at some time - or when he died?

    We are leaving in the morning on a genealogy search/trip and then Thanksgiving in Oklahoma. We will be back about the 1st week in Dec.
    But I will try to give you what I know on the Taulbees.
    I am not kin to any Taulbees. I was searching for the local Sheriff who is a close friend  :>)
    He knew very little about this line of his family.
    Since I have done genealogy for over 30 years (my own) I was helping him find information on his family.

    Have you been in contact with Faye Fowler Passmore at She knows more about this John E. Taulbee and The Lusby family. This was in 2001 that I had contact with her.

    This is just about all I know about John E. Taulbee as he is a lateral line to the Julians surname I was searching.
    Hope this helps, and sorry it took so long to get back to you, so much going on here.
    I am a genealogy nut, but I am not cracked.
