Taylor, Francis 1848-1927 & Elizabeth Ann Vial Family

This story was taken from page 472 of the Ireton Centennial Book (1882-1982). The story was transcribed for this BIOS by Beth De Leeuw of the Greater Sioux County Genealogical Society. Some research notes were added by Wilma J. Vande Berg

Francis Taylor was born at Cornwall, England June 2, 1848 and came to the U.S. in 1869 at the age of 21 to work in the copper mines at Ishpeming, Mi.

Elizabeth Ann Vial was born at Cromwell, England in Feb. of 1856 and came to the U.S. by sailing vessel at the age of 17 months. The voyage took 7 weeks. Her family settled in Ducktown, Tn. When she was 4 years old, the Civil War had its beginning in the community where she lived and she remembered walking over the battle fields among dead horses and men. Twenty families in 13 covered wagons drawn by oxen attempted to escape the turmoil and go North. All their belongs, women and small children rode in the wagons while the men and older children followed behind with the livestock. When they reached Chattanooga, Tn., they blundered into the thick of the battle between the Blue and the Grey. They were hustled into an enclosure, their oxen slain for food, and the wagons burned. Eventually they were transferred to Bowling Green, Ky. where the entire company was herded into an immigrant train and headed north until they reached Michigan. They arrived in Hancock, Mi. on the day before Abraham Lincoln was slain and the memory of that terrible day remained with her all her life. She grew to womanhood in Michigan and married Francis Taylor on July 4, 1873.

Francis Taylor, like many of his fellow miners, always cherished the ambition to own a farm in the prairie district of the unsettled West. In the spring of 1883 he came to Sioux Co. and purchased a farm in Center Twp. where the family lived until 1904. When the Taylor family came to Ireton in 1884, Ireton boasted four buildings and grain stubble graced its main street. Mrs. Taylor was brought to the farm from the end of the railroad at LeMars by livery rig to join her husband who had preceded her to the farm.

The Taylors endured their full share of trial and hardships in settling a new community. In their first years of farming they had only one horse so Mr. Taylor would hitch himself on the opposite side of the implement tongue to help the horse. During the time before they had their first horse, Mr. Taylor would carry sacks of grain on his back for the 15-mile trip to the closest flour mill at Calliope on the Sioux River to have it ground into flour.

During one of the raging blizzards Father Taylor and son Will attempted to replenish their fuel supply from a wood pile some distance from the house and lost their way until they ran into a very large cottonwood tree from which they were able to determine their way to the house. They always credited the tree with saving their lives.

The family at first lived in a one room house with a dirt floor with only the barest of furnishings and necessities. Improvements were added as the times improved.

When the Taylors left the farm in 1904 they lived for a year in Hawarden and then moved to Ireton where they remained for the rest of their lives. Francis Taylor passed away Mar. 30, 1927 and Elizabeth Nov. 4, 1942. See list of their children below.

From the Hawarden Independent, April 7, 1927, Ireton and vicinity news:
Pioneer Laid to Rest Saturday
The funeral of Frank Taylor, Sr., was held Saturday afternoon. Short services were held at the home at 1:30 and from the Methodist church at 2 o’clock. Friends of the departed from far and near came to pay their last respects. The weather and roads were against travel and undoubtedly many were held back on account of it but the attendance was large. Rev. Roy M. Smith, pastor of the Presbyterian church, was in charge with Rev. Wm. P. Webb of the Methodist church, assisting. The choir composed of Will Brown, bass; Ben Bay, tenor; Mrs. Geo. Campbell, alto; and Mrs. R. W. Steele, soprano, with Mrs. Myrtle Brown at the piano, sang some beautiful selections. The church was nicely decorated, floral offerings were there from far and near and were most beautiful. A short service at the grave and then all that remained of the departed was lowered into the cool bosom of mother earth to rest until the great call comes.
Francis Taylor was born in Tyreadreath Highway, near St. Blazy, in Cornwall, England, June 2, 1848, and departed this life at Ireton March 30, 1927, at the age of 78 years, 9 months and 28 days. His childhood and early manhood was spent in his native Cornwell where he followed his profession as a miner in the famous copper mines of that land. At the age of 21 he decided to try his fortune in the great land of opportunity so in July, 1869, he came to the United States and settled in Houghton county, Mich., where he followed his work as a miner in the copper mines of that section. In the spring of 1879 he moved with his family to the iron district in Marquette county, Mich., settling at Ishpeming.
Mr. Taylor, like many of his brother miners, always cherished the ambition to own and operate a farm in the great prairie districts of the unsettled west and so in 1883 the opportunity came when it was possible for him to realize his ambition. In the spring of that year he visited Sioux county and was so taken up that he purchased a farm in Center township. Immediately after he returned to Michigan where he worked until March, 1884. Then with his family he moved onto the farm which he had purchased. He lived on the farm until 1904 when he held a sale and moved to Hawarden where he lived until the following year at which time he moved to Ireton and he continued to make his home here continuously since that time.
He was united in marriage with Elizabeth Ann Veal at Hancock, Mich., July 5, 1873. To this happy union were born nine children, eight of whom with his widow survive him. One daughter passed away in 1882. The children are William, Frank, Alice, Mrs. James Yates and Mrs. A. H. Lindenman of Ireton; Mrs. Geo. Riley and Mrs. J. H. Smith of Winfred, S.D.; and James Taylor of Hastings, Neb. He also leaves one sister, Mrs. T. H. Baker, and one brother, Richard Taylor, both of Cando, N.D., and seventeen grandchildren and three great grandchildren.
Mr. Taylor was numbered among the early pioneers of this section of Sioux county and endured his full share of the trials and hardships which settlement in a new country always brings but by thrift and unceasing toil and application to the task before him he secured a competence that enabled him to spend his declining years in comfort and ease. Mr. Taylor could always be found identified with every worth while movement for uplift and development of the community with both purse and influence. While Mr. Taylor was unassuming in character his square dealing and charitable spirit toward all has endeared him to an ever widening circle of friends, who mourn his departure. Ireton will miss Mr. Taylor, although in late years he was little seen on the streets, his health being such that he was confined to his home much of the time. Those who knew him best will cherish fond memories. May comfort come to those who mourn a husband, father, friend and neighbor from the great Comforter.
All the children were present at the funeral and others from a distance were: Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Chambers of Redfield, S.D.; William Brown of Paullina; E. A. Perry of Sioux Falls and Mr. and Mrs. Manford Nichols of Beresford.

Similar obituaries were published in the Ireton Ledger on both March 31 and April 7, and shorter obituaries in other area newspapers.
His death certificate has Francis Taylor, retired farmer; wife Elizabeth Vial; and adds his parents’ names, Jas or Jos Taylor and Susan Goin, both born in England; cause of death, “senile debility,” duration several years; contributory cause, chronic [illegible] & arterio sclerosis, duration many years.

From the Thursday, November 21, 1942 Hawarden Independent:
Funeral Services for Grandma Taylor
Funeral services for Mrs. Frank Taylor, who passed away last Wednesday morning, were held at the Presbyterian church at 2 o'clock last Friday afternoon with Rev. W. 0. Harper of Ringsted, Iowa, in charge. Burial was made in Pleasant Hill cemetery.
Elizabeth Ann Vial was born in Camburn county of Cornwall, England on Feb. 4, 1856. She was one of six children. Early in 1857 her parents came to the United States eventually moving to Hancock, Houghton county, Michigan, where her father followed his profession as copper miner. Here on July 5, 1873 she was united in marriage to Francis Taylor. To this union was born nine children, two of whom preceded her in death.
Early in 1884 the family moved from Michigan and settled on a farm in Center township, Sioux County, Iowa. Here the family lived until 1905, when Mr. and Mrs. Taylor and younger members of the family moved to Hawarden. In the spring of 1906 the family moved back to Ireton where they have had residence ever since. Mr. Taylor passed away here March 27, 1927.
During the early semi-pioneer days of their residence in Sioux county, the Taylor family had to endure the hardships co-incident to that time, such as the present generation knows nothing of. Never was heard a word of complaint from the lips of Mother Taylor. She was always up and ready to lend a helping hand to those in need with never a thought of herself. After moving to Ireton she united with the Presbyterian church, of which she has been a faithful, consistent and conscientious member to the day of her death. During the latter years she had to endure much pain and suffering but never a murmur of complaint was heard from her lips. The end came peacefully early Wednesday morning, Nov. 4, 1942. Thus closes an active Christian life of 86 years and nine months.
She leaves to mourn her departure the following children: Frank, Alice and William Taylor, Mrs. John Smith and Mrs. James Yates of Ireton; Mrs. George Riley of Canova, S. D., and James Taylor of Hastings, Neb. She is also survived by one brother and sister of Detroit, Mich., 14 grandchildren and 25 great grandchildren.
Those from a distance who attended the funeral were Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Chambers of Redfield, S. D.; Mrs. Lamb and granddaughter of Clark, S. D., James Taylor of Hastings, Nebr., Mr. and Mrs. G. I. Riley and Bessie of Winfred, S. D., Mary Riley of Huron, S. D., Clayton Theodorff of McCook, Nebr., and Mr. and Mrs. Herman Riley of Fernold, Iowa.
Poster's note: According to the 1925 Iowa census, Elizabeth Vial was the daughter of Ann (Dunston) and William Vial.
