I have to reply to my own message! My speculation that the documents
I found were executed by my Samuel McDaniel Taylor was wrong.
There were two Samuel Taylors in the 1850 Franklin
County, TN census. The second one (not my relation) was 45, born in
VA, who had an Agnes, age 28, in the household. The
document giving power of attorney to James, was
witnessed by Agnes G. Taylor. My Samuel McDaniel
Taylor did not have an Agnes. This document and the
sales by attorney in Franklin County must have been
executed by a Samuel Taylor different from mine.
Back to the drawing board!
