I believe Patsy Edgar posted that this Thomas Taylor went to Ozard Co.
Missouri in 1870. Both Cyrus and Sarah Gray Crosby died before 1870. They
left Izard Co about 1855 and were in White and Van Buren Cos. That part of
Van Buren is now Cleburne.

Emma, I also have Thomas in the 1860 household of his grandmother:
IZARD COUNTY, ROCKY BAYOU, SHEET 327A 4 JUN3 1860
29 28 ELIZABETH GRAY 60 F 500 5000 SC *3G-GRANDMOTHER -RDH
BETSY TAYLOR 20 F AR *Children
of Henry Taylor &
THOMAS TAYLOR 7 M AR Polly
But I just double checked the deed and he is not mentioned. Perhaps he is
deceased by 1874.
