The Grayville Mercury (newspaper) - Thursday, Aug. 9, 1906, Number 40, Vol. xviii - [ Front page] Another Land Mark Removed; Mrs. Kissana Taylor was born in NC, March 23, 1823 and died near Grayville, IL Aug. 4, 1906 - 83 yrs 4 mo and 12 days old. She was Married to John Taylor in 1843 to which union was born 8 children; 3 sons and 5 daughters, Alice Lindsay, Martha J. Hallam, Richard C. Taylor, Sarah E. Valette, John A. Taylor, Nancy A. Spencer, William J. Taylor, Charlotte Coleman all of whom survive her except Mrs. Spencer and Richard C. Taylor, who passed on before. Mr. John Taylor with his family spent 3 years in NC moving to IN. They lived there 8 years while in IN. They united with the General Baptist Church. From thence they moved near Grayville, IL where they spent the remainder of their days. They soon took membership with the Christian or Church of Christ where they labored until Jesus said it is enough Come higher, I will make you ruler of greater things. Death laid his icy hand upon the father of this home in 1778, leaving mother and children alone, Grandma Taylor leaves behind not only her own children, but many grand and Great Grand children. A mother left behind with her children to support means many conflicts many trials, but dear children, your mother has proved to be a great heroine, you have had her company many years, yet it is hard to give her up, but how many poor children have been left in this world when but small with no father or mother to help, Sister Taylor has climbed many a mountain, but when she would after many long hours of struggle, stand on the lofty heights of a mountain of care, she would look toward the future and still they towered above her, at last weary and tired, she sits down to rest a while, Jesus Whispers to her tired spirit, she looks up with a smile into his beautiful face; Jesus lifts this tired mother into his arms and carries her to the home of which He said, " I go to prepare a place for you,"

" Yes; it is Well , the evening shadows lengthen, Homes golden gate shines on our ravished site; And though the tender ties we strove to strengthen, Break one by one-at eventide 'tis light. We left the home of Jesse Taylor about 1:20 p.m. Sunday and went to Calvin where quite a crowd of people awaited us. The funeral was preached in the church by the writer, after which we laid her body away in the quite little cemetery near where her husband was buried 27 years ago. God will call for thy body also, dear sister, and it shall come out from this dark city and be taken to the city of light. J. H. Burgess, Pastor. [From the family research files of Ronald Wayland]
