General Notes: Husband - Rev. John Taylor


He served as rector of Trinity Episcopal Church, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, for twenty-one years, from 1798 to 1819. After the death of his wife, in 1829, it was the custom of Rev. Mr. Taylor to leave his home in Pittsburgh and reside with his step-daughter, Mrs. Thomas Limber, in Salem Township, Mercer County, during the summer time, and return to Pittsburgh in the winter. He was devoted to the study of astronomy and calculated a calendar, which was published under the title of the Franklin Almanac and was the first work of that kind published in the country. His death occurred in Salem Township and he was buried on the shore of the Shenango River, and those rippling waters which gave him so much joy in life. [HMC 1909, 563]
