[Note:   This is far from a complete Vernon Family Tree.  It tracks the direct lineage to the Taylor siblings.  In the author’s experience, the reliability of the accuracy of a family tree wanes after the 5th generation.  However, in this case, based on research of similar family trees on and, there is more confidence this tree is substantially accurate.   Admittedly, the tree is incomplete, omitting many family members due to lack of space.   Feel free to check out Vernon Gauntt’s Taylor Family Tree on which includes many more ancestors, photos and content.]
