Wood County Taylor Genealogy

New member Jan Droptini of Beaumont has shared her Taylor lineage with the society.

“My father, Ardoth Wayne Taylor, and my mother, Letha Hazel Hood Taylor, were born and raised in Wood County, Texas. Grandparents are Arch Thomas Taylor, Bonnie Faye Attaway Taylor, Henry Lawrence Hood, and Winnie Lee Farmer Hood. I knew all these people personally so I am confident of the relationship. I am relatively certain of the generations of my great-grandparents due to census records and other recollections. They are James Laurence Taylor, Lucinda Jane Robinson Taylor, Elias Franklin Attaway, Emma Francis Glen Attaway, William Berry Hood, Lillian Johnson Hood, Milton Wiley Farmer, and Lucretia “Creasy” Goolsby Farmer.
