1st Generation
William Taylor Dutton William Taylor Dutton was born October 1851 in Floyd Co., GA(?) and died April 1, 1928 in Hatchel, Runnels Co., TX(?). He was married [1] June 20, 1875 in Blount Co., AL to Obedience "Biddie" Burgess who was born November 1854 in Floyd Co., GA and died before 1905 in Blount Co., AL. He married [2] ALICE, between 1900 and 1905 in TX. William Taylor Dutton was born in either AL or GA. The Burgess family book has his birthplace as Floyd Co. GA, but this has not be confirmed. All of the census entries say he was born in AL. The date of his birth is given as either 1851 or 1853. He appears on the 1880 and 1900 census in Blount Co. AL. His wife apparently died between 1900 and 1905.
The Burgess book says that he re-married. He appears on the 1910 census in Hillsboro, Hill Co. TX with his daughters Nola (18), and Elsie (14) and his son Chalmers (4). It says that Chalmers was born in TX, and that Taylor is widowed. In 1920 he is still in Hillsboro TX and is listed with his son Walter (14). This son is obviously the one earlier listed as Chalmers. His address in 1920 is 107 Turner St. Hillsboro TX. This census lists his parents' birthplace as SC. All the others list it as AL. His occupation is always listed as farmer with the exception of 1920 which has him listed as a carpenter working on his own account. A letter has turned up in the possession of Jane Keenum which was written by Chalmer W. Dutton and says that his father died Apr. 11, 1928. The envelope in which the letter was sent has the date 1852-1928 written on it, indicating the birth and death date of William. The letter was mailed from Hatchel Texas leading this researcher to believe that this is where he died.
