    Coordinator's Note: Rebecca Knapp Miller has generously shared 3 volumes of genealogical research regarding the descendants of Abiah and Deborah (Gearing) Taylor
    with us. This includes the Taylor family, the Scott family, the Knapp family, the Smith family and other related families.
    I have broken it down by generation and excluded vital information regarding living descendants for privacy reasons.
    The 3 volumes have been passed along to the Leon Public Library, Leon, Decatur County, Iowa so they may be included
    in the library's genealogical section. A heart-felt thank you, Rebecca, for thinking of us - and sharing with us!
