(5) ELIJAH CORNWELL, JR. born about 1794 in Rowan County, North Carolina, first married Elizabeth Morris on August 3, 1817 in Jasper County, Georgia, next married Mrs. Elizabeth Mathews (“Elizabeth Matthews”?), and died about 1863 either in Union County, Mississippi or in Jasper County, Georgia.493

In the 1830 census, Elijah Cornwell is listed as living in Jasper County, Georgia near his daughter Catherine Taylor and her husband William Taylor. Elizabeth Morris was born about 1800 and Elizabeth Mathews was born about 1844. In the 1860 census for Monticello Post Office, Jasper County, Georgia, the household of Elijah Cornwell comprised: Elijah Cornwell, age 65; Elizabeth Cornwell, age 28 and probably his daughter, rather than his wife; Hugh M. Cornwell ("Hugh Cornwell"), age 16; Mary T. Cornwell ("Mary Cornwell"), age 7; Franklin P. Cornwell ("Franklin Cornwell"), age 4.

The children of Elijah Cornwell and Elizabeth Morris were:



(i) Elijah Cornwell born about 1828 in Jasper County, Georgia, and married an Elizabeth T. who was born about 1824, and he died sometime before 1900.

According to the 1860 census for Monticello Post Office, Jasper County, Georgia, the household of Elijah Cornwell comprised: Elijah Cornwell, age 32, and his wife Elizabeth T. Cornwell ("Elizabeth Cornwell"), age 32; and their daughter named Sarah A. Cornwell ("Sarah Cornwell"), age 3. Also living in the same household was his younger sister, Emeline, then age 20. At that time he was living near the households of: Rhoda Ann Cornwell Hooks ("Rhoda Hooks" & "Ann Hooks") and her family; his father, Elijah Cornwell, and his family; and his brother, George W. Cornwell ("George Cornwell") and his family.

Elijah Cornwell and Elizabeth Cornwell had a daughter named:

Sarah A. Cornwell ("Sarah Cornwell") born about 1856 in Jasper County, Georgia;

(ii) Elizabeth Cornwell born about 1830 in Jasper County, Georgia;

(iii) George W. Cornwell ("George Cornwell") born about 1833 in Jasper County, Georgia, and married a Rebecca who was born about 1834 in Georgia.

Elijah Cornwell, Jr. and Elizabeth Cornwell had 2 children:

(ix) Mary F. Cornwell ("Mary T. Cornwell"? & "Mary Cornwell") born about 185 in Jasper County, Georgia; and,

(x) Franklin Pierce Cornwell ("Franklin Cornwell") born in October 1854 in Jasper County, Georgia, married Mary E. Leverette ("Mary Leverette") August 27, 1875, and died about 1929 in Spalding County, Georgia;

(6) CATHERINE CORNWELL born about either about 1796493 or about 1790-1800476 in either Gwinette County, Georgia375 & 475 , in Pendleton District, South Carolina434, or in Wilkes County, North Carolina493, married William Taylor about 1812 in Henry County, Georgia, and died either about 1841 in either Nacogdoches County, Texas or in Troup County, Georgia.429 & 434 Some say she died on July 4, 1844 in Troup County, Georgia.375 William Taylor was born about 1786 Georgia, and died about 1849 in Randolph County, Alabama.

The 1820 census for Jasper County, Georgia lists the household of William Taylor as comprising: 3 males under 10, 1 male 26-45 and 1 female 26-45 and had no slaves, and the family of his father-in-law, E. Cornwell, Jr, ("Elijah Cornwell") is listed on the same census page as that of the family of William Taylor.

On April 15, 1836, Georgia Governor William Schley at Milledgeville, Georgia, issued the following Proclamation offering a regard for the capture and return of William Taylor and Catherine Taylor of Troup County, Georgia:

"Whereas I have received official information that on the 15th of March 1836, in the County of Troup in this State, a murder was committed by William Taylor and Catharine Taylor ("Catherine Taylor"), his wife, on the body of a Negro woman named Caty, the property of the said William Taylor; and the said William Taylor and Catharine Taylor have fled from justice, I have thought proper to issue this my proclamation, hereby offering a reward of $300 to any person or persons who may apprehend and deliver the said fugitives to the sheriff or jailor of the County of Troup, and $150 for either of them, so that they may be brought to trial for the offence with which they stand charged. William Taylor is about 50 years of age, 5 feet 10 or 11 inches high, spare made, with blue eyes, light hair, and fair complexion. Catherine Taylor is a tall woman about 40 years of age, black hair, blue eyes, fair complexion and course voice. Signed, April 15, 1836 by Gov. William Schley and Secretary of State William A. Tennille ("William Tennille")."

On April 25, 1837, William Taylor and Catherine Taylor appeared as defendants before the open court of Troup County, Georgia. Witnesses called in the case included Tillman Taylor, Solomon Taylor, Simpson Russell, and Louisa Russell. Tillman Taylor testified that he lived in his father's house from the first of 1836 until after the Negro's death. Simpson Russell testified he saw William Taylor and Catherine Taylor at their brother-in-law's house in DeKalb County, Georgia. The brother-in-law was not identified, but was one of the 4 brothers of Catherine Taylor who were listed in the 1840 census for DeKalb County, Georgia, i.e., either Elijah Cornwell, George W. Cornwell ("George Cornwell"), Hiram Cornwell or Obediah Cornwell ( "Obadiah Cornwell"?).

There is good reason to believe that the particular William Taylor family listed in the 1840 census for the 699th District of Troup County, Georgia, is the same family as the 9 Taylor brothers found in Randolph County, Alabama in later censuses. The family of this particular William Taylor then comprised: 1 male under 5, 1 male 5-10, 2 males 10-15, 2 males 15-20, 1 male 20-30, 1 male 50-60, 1 female under 5, 1 female 5-10, 1 female 20-30, and 1 female under 50.

Two of the older sons of William Taylor, i.e., Tilmon Taylor (“Tillmon Taylor” & “Tillman Taylor”?) and Solomon Taylor were married in Troup County, Georgia in 1836 and 1838 respectively. The above Proclamation places the family in Troup County, Georgia and identifies the wife of William Taylor as Catharine Taylor ("Catherine Taylor"). The head of an adjacent household was Elijah Anderson who had 2 daughters aged 5-10. Elijah Taylor, William Taylor's son, married Sarah Ann Anderson ("Sarah Anderson") of Georgia and born in 1829, and Elijah Anderson is quite possibly the father of Sarah Ann Anderson ("Sarah Anderson").

The Baxton Alpheus Taylor ("Baxton Taylor") family Bible gives the date of birth of William Taylor as about 1786, his place of birth as Georgia, and his death as 1849 in Roanoke, Randolph County, Alabama. His wife's name is given as Catherine Cornwell ("Catharine Cornwell"?), born in 1796 in Georgia, and her death as July 4, 1844 in LaGrange, Troup County, Georgia. William Taylor and Catherine Taylor had 12 children:

(i) LOUISA TAYLOR born about 1812 in Georgia, and married Simpson Russell who was born about 1805 in Georgia. Louisa Russell and Simpson Russell were among those called as witnesses of William Taylor and Catherine Taylor in 1837 in Troup County, Georgia. The 1850 census for Randolph County, Georgia lists the age of Simpson Russell as 45, and the age of Louisa Russell as 38 and their 7 children then living in the same household were listed as follows: Catherine Russell age 17; Ignatius Russell age 14; James Russell age 11; Naomi E. Russell ("Naomi Russell") age 9; Amanda Russell age 7; John Russell age 5; and, Martha Russell age 3. Also living in the same household was a J. Taylor, age 31, and reported as insane, and Catherine J. Taylor ("Catherine Taylor") age 13. The 2 older children were born in Georgia and the 5 younger children were born in Alabama. This indicates the family moved from Georgia to Alabama sometime between 1836-1839. The children of Simpson Russell and Louisa Russell were:
