GILBERT, TAYLOR posted by Gerry Feeley on Sunday, November 8, 1998

Seek info on Theophilus H. Gilbert of Palmyra, Portage County, OH. In 1863 he was described as the uncle of a TAYLOR minor in Allegan County, MI for whom an adoption petition had been filed. Since this child's deceased father was a TAYLOR, it is assumed that Theophilus H. Gilbert was a brother of the child's deceased mother. Did Theophilus H. Gilbert have a sister born ca. 1801-1808 who could be the mother of this child. Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks, Gerry Feeley.
