MRIN-73 George A. Taylor and Maranda Washburn

George A. Taylor and Maranda Washburn

My 4th great grandparents MRIN-73

Please keep in mind that this is research in progress. I am working on gathering as many of the documents, stories and pictures as possible to put together as much of an accurate story about their lives as I can. Don’t take anything as fact until it is verified.

NOTE: 19 Aug 2013. I’ve just today learned the names of George and Maranda. I’ve spent a good part of the day researching them and looking at the 1860 census I’ve seen something I’ve not seen before. George’s occupation was listed as “Keeper of the poor”. After his family is listed then there are 12  people listed as a “Pauper” in a section of the census that the enumerator boxed in and wrote “Poor House” along the side. Those people range in age between 25 and 85 years old. Only one was 25 then the age ranges were mostly in the 40-60 age groups. There were three women with the last name of Ball that look very familiar to me. I’ll have to go back and check my research. One of George and Maranda’s granddaughter’s married into the Ball family which my direct line.
