Using these credits (in the end I paid for two sets of ten), I was able to track census finding that his son, my great uncle Charles Taylor, lived in Illinois; my grandfather's younger brother David in the adjoining state of Indiana, and flesh out further details of their growing families after they emigrated from England.
I was telling my sister...the keeper of old family albums... who responded eagerly, "Do you know, there are two very old photos photos (cartes de visites from New Albany, Indiana, in our great grandmother's photo album from New Albany in Indiana?" We were so excited! We've decided they are of our grandmother's half brother, Charles Taylor, and his first wife, Ann, and his second wife, Eliza Jane. We know his first wife Ann died in childbirth 1864 (towards the end of the Civil War). The reflects that, whereas the photograph of Charles taken with his second wife uses a later photographic process. Charles died in 1880, so the photo would have been taken somewhere between 1869, when he married Eliza Jane, and 1880. What a wonderful source to add to his profile and the profile of his two wives!
The census results tell the story of their time in England with a young daughter, supplemented by a migration report; and later censuses which show them having settled in New Albany, ;Floyd County' Indiana.
It is truly wonderful when a family story, which has assumed that of a possible myth, turns out to be grounded in 'evidence based' fact. For our family, this is one of those stories, a story which owes a lot to the careful family research of Keith Taylor, of Lincolnshire, his use of flags to reflect migration.of our ancestors in his family tree, and the use of Census results to establish the presence of my great great grandfather's younger brother and son in the United States!
