A TOUCHING INCIDENT.

“While Capt. Nicholas Davis was making a tour through the county of Lauderdale filling some political appointments, and while at Rogersville awaiting the assembling of the people whom he was to address, the western mail-stage came in, and in a few moments, a strange young man rushing into the room where Capt. Davis was, and almost without salutation, throwing his arms around Capt. Davis’ neck and submerged in tears, hailed him as his deliverer. The company astonished, withdrew for a moment, supposing the young man to he some near relative. Capt. Davis also wept when he was embracing Thomas Tatom, one of the Texas prisoners, who was released by the friendly interposition of himself through Mr. Clay of Kentucky. The whole company partook of the general joy. The young man was on his way home, to his father’s house at least. where he would meet the full-heart, and the affectionate embraces of a time-worn father, and a large circle of relatives and friends.”-Athens Whig.-Southern Advocate, Huntsville, Oct. 25, 1844, p. 3.

TAYLOR, GEORGE. “This Revolutionary soldier is mentioned in Northern Alabama. Illustrated, p. 261. He is buried ten miles east of Huntsville, near the bank of the Flint River; there is no tombstone over his grave. Family records give the facts of his history. George Taylor was born in Virginia, exact date not known but about 1762, and died in Madison County, Alabama, 1826. He entered the Revolutionary army – in his seventeenth year, was first under fire at the battle of Monmouth, 1778, then came to South Carolina with ‘Light Horse Harry’ Lee’s command and engaged in many battles and skirmishes with Lee, and at the close of the war he was a lieutenant. ‘He was in the disastrous charge at King’s Bridge, where, owing to misdirection of orders, the advance was not supported and out of twenty, only five made good their retreat.’ Soon after the Revolution he married Miss Jennings, of Lexington, Oglethorpe County, Georgia, and she was probably born in Lexington. Miles Jennings, a famous Indian fighter, who is described in White’s Historical Collections of Georgia, and who lived in Oglethorpe County, is perhaps of the same family as the wife of George Taylor. It is stated that George Taylor commanded a scouting party for defense against the Indians, for more than ten years after the close of the Revolutionary war; this party being organized at Lexington, Georgia. He was also captain in the militia. He moved from Georgia to Winchester, Tenn., in 1805, and came to Madison county, Ala., in 1810, and settled on the banks of the Flint river, where he is buried. His wife died in Alabama several years before his death. He died in 1826. A grandson of this couple was the late judge Thomas J. Taylor, of Huntsville, probate judge of Madison county. The inherited courageous and patriotic spirit of the family is shown by the fact that Judge Taylor and six brothers were gallant soldiers and officers in the Confederate States army. A great-grandson, Douglass Taylor, is now living in Huntsville, and other descendents are living in Louisiana.”-Mrs. P. H. Mell in Transactions of the Alabama Historical Society, Vol. iv, pp. 566-567.
