The Ramsey and Taylor Ancestors

This is the Taylor/Hard/Wyllys Family Photo Album

This side of the family is primarily of English descent.

This is a hand painted rendition of the house occupied by James Taylor,
born about 1806 died 3 Dec 1872. His spouse was Elizabeth Ann Tyler b: 1824 d: 10 Nov 1850.
They had 10 children, one of which was my great grandfather, George Edwyn Taylor.

This is a hand drawn watercolor of the house known as "Mountain View (also on the front page).
It was the summer home of the Taylors/Hards. Before air conditioning was invented, the wealthy along the coast would escape to their summer homes in the mountains in the upper part of South Carolina. Ashtabula Plantation, owned by another branch of my family, the Bowens, during the late 1800's was one such retreat.

Daniel Strobel, Sr. b: Abt. 1734 d: 1806 and Maria Elisabetha Martin b: 02 Dec 1732 d: 07 Aug 1807
They had 12 children. Daniel Strobel is my 4th great grandfather on my father's side.
