Frank A Taylor was the son of James Alexander Taylor and Mary Mandana Buzzell Taylor.

I believe he was born in Dec 1857 (I cannot confirm this) in Chippewa Falls, WI. According to the family information I have, Frank A Taylor was the first white child born in Chippewa Falls. I don't have a date of death for him, but I believe he probably died in Portland, OR where he resided in 1920 at the age of 63.

Some other info I have about him is that he was married in 1896 at the age of 39, but I don't have any information on who he married. By the time of the census in 1910, he was divorced.
