|1850 census of PLEASANT COLEMAN TAYLOR, CARROLL CO., VA.|
It's Family History Friday and number 58 on my ancestor list is my third great grandfather, Zachariah Taylor, the husband of Elizabeth Peak. The Taylors are the last names on my ancestor list in generation 6 as I have not yet found the names of the next four ancestors and so this will be the end of my generation 6 posts for now...
Zack Taylor was the son of Pleasant Coleman Taylor and Jane Reed Tharp.
Zack married Elizabeth "Lizzie" Peak on December 16, 1873 in Wythe Co., VA.
Zack's marriage record says he was born in Carroll county, Virginia as was his wife Elizabeth.
Lizzie's parents were Aaron Peak and Sally Christley. Zack's parents were Pleasant Taylor and Jane AKA "Jincy" Tharp. Pleasant and Jane were born in North Carolina, as were their children Thomas and Eliza A. Taylor. Their other children were born in Virginia, so the family must have moved to Virginia about 1944. Pleasant's mother was living with him in 1850 when Zack was age 3.
