Hi Marion -- In reference to Mary (Taul) Fisher -- I have, along with several other members of the family, been looking for several years for a trace of the father of the 4 Taul children who belonged to Mary, I am sorry to say with no success to date. But I have not given up. The story was passed from Nancy Elizabeth Taul, who was in her 90s at the time she relayed this family tradition to Bessie Taul Conkwright. Nancy lived in Waynoka, OK. She went there during the land rush back in the 1890s, leaving Breckenridge County, KY. Her father's name was Benjamin Muffett Taul. He was the oldest son of Samuel Taul. Nancy stated that she had heard that Mary had been indentured to a man by the name of Crampton. She was indentured to him for her passage to America, from where I do not know. The story was that she had 4 children by this man, and he refused to marry her. But the story has been attributed to the Muffett side of the family also, so I do not really know. Bessie Conkwright seems to have thought that Nancy Elizabeth Taul was in her 90s at the time that she told her this information and may have been a little forgetful due to her age and may have gotten the story mixed up. Sorry I wasn't able to shed more light on this. I am still looking for Arthur Thomas' father.
Your cousin, James D. Taul
