The following family trees for the Taylor families concerns the Taylors who settled near Mount Airy, the Taylors who settled on the Cook Tract in Amwell/Delaware Township, a short distance west of the village of Sand Brook, and the Taylor family of Bethlehem Township who were associated with the Taylor Iron Works.

Some of the more prominent related families who appear in previous articles:

Bray, Dunham, Everitt, Gano, Haines, Hoagland, Hunt, Lair, Lambert, Lawshe, Opdycke, Rea, Risler, Rittenhouse, Robins, Romine, Runyan, Sergeant, Sharp, Sine, Sutton, Thatcher, Vandolah, Wilson, and Wolverton

Given the challenge of researching these early Taylors, I will happily entertain any additions or corrections readers may wish to provide.
