I am a descendants of 1 - Nathaniel Taylor, 2 - Nathaniel Francis Taylor, 3 - Nathaniel Franklin Taylor, and my grandfather -- 4 - Edgar Thomas Taylor (twin to Edwin William Taylor).

The children are not in the correct order, as I do not have dates on some. I have been unable to trace Nathaniel Taylor beyond what is given below. Hope this helps you get started/restarted.
