Seat left to right are Campbell "Cam" Harrison Taylor and first wife Stacy E. (Welch) Taylor. Standing between them is their oldest child, Elizabeth "Bettie" Haseltine (Taylor) Keys. Many thanks to Keith Lowrey of Glen Allan, VA for the photo of Cam and Stacy (Welch) Taylor and data on his ancestor, Campbell Harrison Taylor! Keith said, "The photo was taken from the tin-type and touched up. The tin-type has quite a few smudges that were removed and I think it came out pretty well."

Thanks also to Keith Lowrey and to June Herman for Cam and Stacy (Welch) Taylor's obituaries as follows:

"Mrs. Campbell Taylor passed away at her home, near Coffeyville. Just a few days after her daughter, Polly, was killed. The shock of the death didn't help."

The Coffeyville Daily Journal, Fri. evening, Oct. 9, 1914
"Campbell H. Taylor, a Pioneer Indain [sic] Lawyer of this city, died at his home, 504 East Fourth Street, this afternoon shortly before 3 O'clock. He had been in poor health foe [sic] some time and had not been in the active practice of law for a number of years. He was the father of Mrs. Shelly Keys."

"Interesting because he was also the father of 8 children of Minnie Rebecca (Grayson) Taylor and she was also surviving him." -- K Lowrey
