John D Taylor line seems to be the only source of the Taylor's origin in Craven Co, NC. The findagrave bio:
"JOHN D TAYLOR born in 1801 in Craven County, North Carolina to JAMES AND NANCY WHITE TAYLOR.

John's 1st marriage was to ANN WITHERINGTON on 21 Jan 1820 in Craven County, North Carolina. Ann was born in 1804 in Craven County, North Carolina.

Source of above information came from my Grandmother, Pearl Cathern Holt Going; Great Grandmother Mary Ann Robinson Taylor and:

Note odd ages in the US Census for him:
1830: 1790-1799 older than Francis!
1840: 1800-1809 odd! no longer next to Francis but on the other side of Samuel.
1850: 1801 NC
1860: 1801 NC
1870: 1802 NC
--> In 1830, I assume that John Taylor next to Francis Taylor is his brother but in the next census, he is 16 hh's away on the other side of Samuel Taylor. Samuel's eldest child, John, was born 1798 KY and had moved to Stone Co, MO by 1840.

I beleve only 1 of those daughters is from John D Taylor and Ann Witherington, as shown in 1830 census. The older one may have been a daughter of Elizabeth Hall before marrying John Taylor.

Marriage before 1834 Alabama, USA Marriage of Taylor, John D Sr 2 3
Event Note

There should be an existing Alabama state marriage record, but not there. Instead this record might be them:
Name: John Taylor
Gender: Male
Marriage Date: 16 Jul 1829
Marriage Place: Madison, Alabama, USA
Spouse: Elizabeth Terrell
Film Number: 001305696
, because the 1830 Census of John Taylor shows only 1 daughter, but the 1840 Census shows 2 daughters born before 1830. Perhaps Elizabeth Hall had a daughter before marrying John Taylor. Also, the death cert of Jesse Madison Taylor b.1830 d.1919 Shannon Co, MO says his mother was a Hall.
