These are the sixteen great-great grandparents of my father. These are the great-grandparents of Fred Wilson and Anna Laura (Millirons) Taylor, Kansas Pioneers. The descendants of Fred and Anna Taylor share all of these ancestors.

Note that more than half of our ancestors on this side (nine) are likely Scotch-Irish immigrants during the Great Migration of the Scotch-Irish from 1710-1776. Then, there is a blend of (three) Palatine German immigrants during the same period, with two English and two Scottish ancestors thrown in the mix. The Scottish ancstors came later, in 1836. We're not sure when the English migrated.

The country of origin of several lines are not known, but most likely Scotch-Irish. The reason for thinking these lines are Scotch-Irish and not Irish is primarily because they were Protestant and followed Scotch-Irish migration patterns. There is no evidence of any Catholicism anywhere in any of the above families. Tombleson was a Puritan name and could be English.
