WILLIAM Traylor c1763 - 1827

compiled by Linda Sparks Starr February 2008


1763 estimated birth year in Dinwiddie Co. Virginia William Traylor, son of William based on six children in William's household per 1800 Oglethorpe Co. Georgia census [Warren] and his probable service during the Revolutionary War. Also, he was "of age" by 1786 when he was listed on the 1786 Wilkes Co. tax rolls. LSS note: "M" as his middle initial is not supported by contemporary documents including his extant probate records.

1776-1778 Pvt. William Traylor Jr. served in Capt. Ralph Falkner's Co. of the 5th VA Reg't. [muster rolls located National Archives.] LSS note: No actual proof the younger Private is this particular William, but several things point to him as this soldier, including descendants who entered the DAR on his record.

1785-1786 estimated marriage year, probably in Georgia,William Traylor and Esther (surname unknown). LSS note: Even though the marriage record has not been located, some researchers list her surname as BANKS; however, BUCKLEY appears as a middle name among their descendants. Additionally this family seems especially close to Winnefred Hamilton which may be a clue to Esther's parents.

1786 Wilkes Co. GA Tax Records, Capt. Elsberry's Co: Jno. Banks, William Traylor 200 acres (2nd class) and 450 acres (3rd) 8 slaves; William Traylor Jr. 200 acres (3rd class) [Hudson p. 114] LSS note: to my knowledge no one has found how William Jr. came by this 200 acres. Information about his headright grant differs greatly according to the source.

1787 estimated birth year in Wilkes Co. GA Mary E. "Polly" Traylor, daughter of William & Esther. LSS note: Her age is based on William having one daughter 10-16 per 1800 census and, if researchers are correct, their daughter "Mary" is the one who married in 1807.
