This is my first posting to this list.
My Great Uncle Emery Busby was from Jamaica. I'm just now beginning to
piece together family history. My hopes are that this posting will
generate some cousin connections.
Below you will find: a brief outline and quotations from the Guthrian

I suggest you check the funeral homes in Jamacia and see if they have a record. Also did you order a death certificate? It might have parents names. There are a lot of Taylors burial records on the Guthrie County WPA records which is available on the Guthrie genealogy webstite. I went to school with a Taylor. I will check with her and see if this is a known family name.-----Original Message-----

I was wondering if there might be someone who who would have an obituary on a John P. Taylor. Bn: 23 Jun 1848 England, and died: 28 Jul 1926 Jamaica Richland Twp. Guthrie Co. Ia. I am trying to find who his parents might have been, Thank you very much for anything you might have on this family.
