Notes for Joel Taylor and Anna Vanderbeck

Research Notes:

We are researching Joel Taylor, son of John Taylor and Sarah Quicksall. There may be more than one man named Joel Taylor, whose notes are confused below. The Chesterfield Monthly Meeting Records report the births of two children to Joel Taylor, son of John and Ann, and Ann, his wife. This could be a transcription error, or it could suggest the need to distinguish Joel Taylor, son of John and Ann, from another Joel, perhaps this son of John and Sarah Taylor. Two children, named Anna (born 1794) and Dorothy (born 1797) were listed, which might match the non-Quaker marriage acknowledged about 1792 in the notes below. [1]

Joel Taylor, Sarah Taylor and Stacy Taylor, executors of the will of John Taylor, were also summoned to appear. [6]

1787 Joel Taylor was administrator for the estate of [cousin?] Thomas Quicksall of Burlington County, with bondsman John Curtis. Cousin Daniel Quicksall who died a month later, brother to Thomas, renounced in favor of Joel Taylor. [7]

[19]
