The Taylor surname comes to me via Rosmer P. Kerr. His fourth great-grandfather is said to be:
- Joshua Taylor. Another source says Abraham Taylor. I haven't researched this and don't know for sure which is correct. Joshua's wife is said to be Marrayetia Young. If correct, Joshua and Marrayetia were my sixth-great grandparents.
- Maragieta Teator, who married Henderick Effenaar. These spellings come from the record above which appears in the books of the Dutch Reformed Church at Schagticoke, New York. Teator and Taylor appear to have been used interchangeably in these records. Maragieta would have been born in the mid-1700s. She and Henderick were my fifth great-grandparents.
Reader, if you have been able to document Maragieta's correct parentage, I'd be so very glad to hear from you.
