Taylor, John – Obituary

Passing of John Taylor With the burial of John Taylor upon the old home ranch at Bristol last Saturday afternoon, there passed over the Great Divide another Kittitas county’s honored pioneers. He was born in Wise county, West Va., in 1851 and died at his home at Bristol station December 12, 1917, of cancer. When but a small boy he removed with his parents to Dassel, Minn., and in 1868 was married to Elizabeth Hutchins who still survives him. To this union were born nine children, seven of whom are now living; L.W. Taylor of Cle Elum, Elmer Taylor of Montesano, W.G. Taylor and Ansel Taylor of Sunnyside, Alexandria Taylor of Ellensburg, Guy O. Taylor of Bristol and Mrs. E. T. Feldman of Ione, Ore. Mr. Taylor was one of the early pioneers of the state, coming here in 1884. He served one term as county commissioner and was always found an able and willing worker in public affairs. Notes: He was born in May of 1850 in Wise, VA. He was listed in the 1850 Census. And Wise County is in Western Virginia, not West VA. He married Elizabeth October of 1867. I do not know what newspaper this was in, as I found the original clipping in my Great-Grandmas bible. Contributed by: Gretchen Carey, March 18,...
