F. M. Taylor, farmer in Coffee County, was born January 16, 1845, in Tennessee. He is the son of Daniel and Mary (Angel) Taylor, the former born about 1813, in Tennessee, and the latter about 1811, and is still living, while her husband died in 1846. His grandmother, also Mary Angel by name, a native of Virginia, died in 1885, about one hundred years old.

Leaving the farm, our subject served a year in Company A, First Tennessee Infantry. Not yet eighteen, he was discharged on account of his years, and after two years’ teaching, he began his life of farming, uninterrupted except from January 1, 1883, to October 1, 1885, in general merchandising at Manchester. Blowing spring, a natural curiosity, is located near his land. December 17, 1863, he married Lucinda J., daughter of Anderson and Rebecca Lambert. Their nine children are Andrew J., William T., Robert E. L., Sarah E. (died September 1878), Albert S., Eliza J., Roger S., Lulu F. and Josephus Z. Mr. Taylor served two terms as magistrate, is justice of the peace, a member of the Masonic order and of the Separate Baptist Church. He is a democrat. Mill Cove is a remarkably finely watered land and well situated.
