Dyer County Courthouse

The tenth in the series of Taylor Triangle reunions will be held in Dyersburg, Tennessee on Saturday, June 26, 2004.  We hope that you can come.  Dyer County is the center for the Tennessee portion of the Taylor clan.  It's the area I came from.  Isabella, Israel, Noah, and two of Robert's children lived there.   Isabella went to Dyer County from Newberry with her husband Simeon Hawkins after Simeon's father moved there.  Noah and Israel came later and settled in the area.  James Stanhope Taylor, and Thomas Taylor, sons of Robert came and settled later, since relatives were already there.

We expect a good attendance from locals, but we are also expecting several of the Hawkins' from California to visit as well.

I will be staying at the Hampton Inn.  I have arranged a reduced rate for the reunion.  It is a flat rate of $69 regardless of room size or number of people.  To make reservations, call 1-731-285-4778 and say you're part of the Taylor reunion.

As has become a tradition with these reunions, there will be informal get-togethers at the main motel on Friday and

Saturday evenings. To enjoy like we did in Florida last year, I have rented a connecting room that they will set up with tables and chairs for us to visit.  Locals are highly encouraged to join the out-of-towners at the motel.  These informal get-togethers have become one of the highlights of the reunions.
