Mr. Taylor had a mechanical turn of mind, was a professional undertaker and embalmer, was a director of the Heath Telephone Co., whose service extended throughout this town and towns adjoining on the south and east, was a prominent member of the Odd Fellows and an officer in the H.O. Gillette post, No. 109, G.A.R. Mr. Taylor was born in Adam, N.Y., and served in the army from New York and Wisconsin, where he lived for a time. He was twice married, first to Anna, daughter of Leonard Brown, and to Viora M., daughter of Martin Brown, and widow of R.E. Jillson. He is survived by his wife and one brother. The funeral was held from the Methodist church last Friday and was largely attended by many friends, the G.A.R. post, the Odd Fellows and the Rebekahs, of all those orders he was a member. the many floral tributes attest the esteem in which he was held in this and adjoining towns. The stores were closed during the funeral exercises, which were conducted by Rev. A.N. Blackford of Wilmington. Interment in the village cemetery.
