  1. DEAR KINDRED: I really appreciate each one of your posts. I find them simple and thoughful, fun & funny. I reaserch my MINOR family and you have given me some very great information over the years. I am stuck on my DANIEL TAYLOR of Perry County Indiana. I have sqeezed teh records over the last 10 years and not a drop more. I have one unresearched lead out of Bredenridge County—which is across the Ohio from Perry County INdiana. I beleive the land records and tax reports are my Daniel Taylor as his son & daughterinlaw (Mary Jane Minor Nelson County) were from KY in other documents. Do you have anything at all on any Daniel Taylor’s. I live in British Columbia Canada and cant get away these last few years—not that i havent tried. Danny Hingley 250-219-0351 >
