He then came to the United States and traveled for about three years, when he came to Spencer and finally located. When he first came here, he worked at the carpentering trade, but subsequently moved on a farm, where he remained several years engaged in tilling the soil. In 1888 he removed to Spencer and formed a partnership with John S. Smith, and has since that date been in the farm machinery trade. Mr. Taylor is not only a first-class carpenter, but understands thoroughly the machine trade. He has been married twice, the first time to Miss Ruth Elkins, a number of years ago, leaving him one son, Mark D. The second time to Miss Hattie Webb. They have one child, Ettie.
