=> unfortunately, family researcher Faye Reynolds proved this was a different couple that went to Rutherford Co, TN.

Another possible match is James Taylor and Nancy Dotson (Dodson) m. 7 Jan 1796 Cabarrus Co, NC.
- 1 year before my James and Nancy Taylor's eldest was born.
- These Taylors from Ireland.
- William Taylor arrives from Ireland in 1767! "12 years before the Revolution".
- Dotson's lived in early northwest Jackson Co, AL like the Taylor's
- curious reference to John Taylor who married Elizabeth Hall in 1802?, but James' son John married Elizabeth Hall in 1831.
- a Peter Taylor in 1810 census Cabarrus Co, NC
- Dotson's of Cabarrus Co, NC came from Chester Co, PA.

The census for Jackson County is split by "Range Lines". I assume all those in the area denoted by "West of 4th Range Line" [area where James Hall lived - NW Jackson County] could have associated with each other. This area comprises pages 89-146 of the Census. Unfortunately, James Taylor, Sr. lives East of the 4th Line Range, along with Francis
James Taylor : pg45 m5-9, 1m20-29, 1m60-69, 1f5-9, 2f10-14, 1f15-19, 1f40-49
Francis Taylor : pg15 m<5, m20-29, f<5, f10-14, f<20
John Taylor : pg15 m<5, 2m5-9, 1m30-39, f<5, f20-29 (next door to Francis)
Thomas Taylor: pg134 2m<5, 2m5-9, 1m30-39, 1f<5, 1f20-29
Jesse Taylor : pg43 m5-9, m20-29, f<5, f20-29
John Taylor : pg43 2m<5, m5-9, m20-29, f<5, f5-9, f20-29 (near Jesse)
note: neither of these John's matches our John Taylor's family. also looks like one of his son's families living in James hh.
