Welcome to Our Family Web Portal

This website is to preserve and share family history, oral and documented, genealogy, and biographies of family members as well as other relevant family information. It is being developed in memory of my mother, Helen Holloway Dyer, who passed away January 9, 2009. It is for “our family,” but in a sense we are all family, (if we did all the genealogy,) please feel free to post information about your family.

I haven't posted a lot of information yet; I have been busy building the site. Please help out by creating an account and posting relevant information about our family. I am particularly hopeful that we can persevere the "storys" that have been told by our ancestors. Do you remember a story your father or grandmother told? Write it down and post it.

Look around and see what you think about the site. We have just got started and there will be lots more soon. You can give us feedback on the site by clicking on, (you guessed it,) the Feedback link.

You can start helping out on the site by writing and posting your own bio. No need to post you pin number or bank account, but just who you are and how you are related to the family. If you don't know how or if you are related to our family, tell us some of your ancestors.

New Our Family Toolbar

We have a Our Family new toolbar It has several cool features like private chat with family members. Its free. Give it a try. Download our free toolbar. If you would like links or features added drop me a line in the feedback link.

  Events Taylor Family: Death of Ivon Taylor

It is with sadness and regret that we announce the death of Ivon Taylor. Ivon was the youngest brother of Hiram Doye Taylor Sr. At this time we are not sure of the time of death, it seems that it was most likely Sunday the 31st of January, 2009. (it was Feb. 1, 2009.) Burial was in Woodlawn Cemetery in Adel, Cook County, Georgia, (what was once called the Old Town Cemetery; the same one where Levi Sapp is buried.)
Note: Ivon was married twice. Gale and Marjorie preceded him in death.

Written by Sister Helen Holloway Dyer in 1997
The church had not flourished much in Tuscaloosa county until 1941. It was not that the church had neglected Alabama. In a special conference in April 1843, with Brigham Young President, the following men were appointed to Alabama: Benjamin L. Clapp, John Blair, Wilkinson Hewitt and Lymon O. Littlefield. (History of the Church Vol. 5, pg. 347)

These men must have been very dedicated and found some valiant people. In April 1844 a conference was held at Cypry, Tuscaloosa County, Alabama. At the conference seven branches were represented. There were 192 members present including twelve elders, five priests, four teachers and two deacons. At that conference Elder Benjamin L. Clapp was president and John Brown was clerk. Other elders appointed were W.G. Brandon, L.D. Butler and T.J. Brandon (History of the church Vol. 6, pgs. 331-338) But people were very hostile to the Mormons and the branches seemed to have dwindled away. Of course many faithful saints from that time migrated to the West. The influence of the Church from that time is still found in the area. North of Tuscaloosa we find a road called Mormon Road. Up near Jasper is found a town named Nauvoo.

In about January of 1941 Elder W. Merle Anglesey and Elder Clayton Larson were sent to open up Tuscaloosa ... again. When Helen Dyer began to write this account, she located Elder McArthur who had baptized her. He wrote to her and said that he went to his journal and found where he had written of her baptism. His journal said, "I baptized Helen in the afternoon in the Black Warrior River, about nine miles on highway eleven." That was on September 7, 1941. And he says, ''This appears to be the start of the church in that area." Other elders had come, but there were no baptisms.
