The Hannah Kaylor Mystery

The biggest remaining mystery surrounding the early Kaylors of Lincoln County involves a woman named Hannah Kaylor. Hannah was born in North Carolina in 1781 and raised a large family in Lincoln County before she and her children migrated to Gilmer County, Georgia shortly before 1840. Two of her children, Peter Kaylor and Eli Kaylor, were married in Lincoln County.

The question is this: Who was Hannah Kaylor's husband and the father of all those children? After all this time, no documented evidence has emerged that would answer this question. Based on the best available evidence, both the census and other Lincoln County records, everything seems to point to George Kaylor. Unless Hannah's husband never appeared on the census or in any other Lincoln County records, George Kaylor would seem to be the only possibility. Hannah Kaylor would have been too young to be the mother of George Kaylor's oldest children, George Jr. and Henry Kaylor, but it's very possible that he could have been married more than once. George Kaylor was already married before the family moved to North Carolina, yet, his son, John Kaylor indicated on the 1880 census that his mother was born in North Carolina. This is one possible indication that George Kaylor was married more than once.

The 1820 census adds credence to this possibility. It shows George Kaylor with a large family that matches up pretty well with Hannah Kaylor's known children to that point in time. It also lists his wife in a younger age bracket consistent with Hannah Kaylor's age.

More possible evidence is found on the 1880 census, the first year the census showed the birthplace of each person's parents. Three of Hannah Kaylor's sons, Eli, Daniel, and David, lived long enough to appear on that census and all showed that their father was born in Pennsylvania, as was George Kaylor, and their mother in North Carolina.

It is also important to note that when Hannah and her family moved to Georgia, Catherine Kaylor, sister of George Kaylor, made the same move. Apparently Hannah and Catherine were neighbors when they first settled in Gilmer County, Georgia and by the 1850 census both are found living in Forsyth County, Georgia. It would seem to suggest a close family connection of some sort. In Georgia, Catherine Kaylor lived with Joshua and Mary Howard, a young married couple from Lincoln County, NC. The witness at their wedding was John Kaylor, son of George Kaylor. The sister of this Joshua Howard, married Hannah Kaylor's son, Eli.

Although there isn’t any definite proof, it seems likely, based on all the factors mentioned above, that George and Hannah Kaylor were husband and wife.

Peter was the father of my grandfather, Jasper Kaylor. I have been searching for Hannah's husband for several years. While George is a good candidate, I am not convinced.

I'm a descendant of Hannah Longcrier, and I'm getting my relatives to dig out our genealogy stuff so we can clear up this deal.

My granny's sister has pictures on her mantle. Hannah is Cherokee and dark-skinned, dressed in European attire. She married a white man, who my granny recalls is John Caylor -- spelled that way. She remembered that name from memory, not from my prompting. They lived in northern Georgia around Dalton, and my great aunt still lives there today along with her descendants.

Feel free to contact me by email.

Dave, I'm following up on Hannah.

Your George's John was 5 yrs old when our Hannah had 2 kids. Your John married Eva Bolick, not our Hannah.

George could have counted Hannah and her kids on both census, but George still would be missing 2 kids. They weren't married. He probably remarried somebody, given what his son John said about his mother though. 2 grown females disappeared and 3 male kids appeared between the 1810 and 1820 census. He was up in age to be having kids.

I bet George came down from Penn. with a brother, and that's why 3 of Hannah's kids say their father is from Penn. George might've played foster parent too. We need more info.

Will keep you in mind.

Thanks for your post made here. One thing I would like to say is the
fact that most professional job areas consider the Bachelor Degree like
thejust like the entry level standard for an online college diploma.
Whilst Associate Qualifications are a great way
to start, completing your own Bachelors starts up
many entrance doors to various ent goodies, there are numerous online Bachelor Diploma Programs
available through institutions like The University of
Phoenix, Intercontinental University Online and Kaplan.
Another concern is that many brick and mortar institutions
provide Online versions of their college diplomas but often for a substantially
higher cost than the organizations that specialize in online college degree plans.

Thanks for your exciting article. One other problem is
that mesothelioma cancer is generally due
to the inhalation of materials from asbestos, which is a cancer causing material.
It really is commonly seen among personnel in the engineering
industry who definitely have long experience of asbestos.
It can also be caused by living in asbestos covered buildings for years
of time, Inherited genes plays an important role, and some consumers are more vulnerable to the risk compared to others.

I have learned some considerations through your blog post post.

One other stuff I would like to convey is that there are several games that you can buy which are designed specially for preschool age small children.
They include things like pattern identification, colors, animals, and forms.
These usually focus on familiarization as opposed to
memorization. This makes children and kids engaged
without feeling like they are learning. Thanks

I do enjoy the manner in which you have presented this
particular concern and it does indeed provide us some fodder for consideration.
Nonetheless, from just what I have observed, I just simply hope as the actual commentary pile
on that people keep on issue and don't embark on a soap box associated with some other news du jour. Still, thank you for this superb point and whilst I do not concur with the idea in totality, I regard the standpoint.

I have realized that of all varieties of insurance, health insurance coverage is the
most debatable because of the discord between the insurance plan company's duty to remain profitable and the client's need to have insurance cover.

Insurance companies' income on wellness plans have bec low, therefore some providers struggle to earn profits. Thanks for the tips you share through this site.
