Impact of research – formation of team, re-establishment of ties to lost branches of the family.
One of the first documents that the team discovered was a note in the Bath Historian’s office detailing some of the History of General John Taylor and his family.In that note it states that John Taylor started as a private in the Militia.Although we have not found any of his Militia Records prior to 1775, we have found that on October 28th of 1775 he was promoted to 2nd Major of the 4th Hunterdon Regiment of the New Jersey Militia.
