Taylors of LA
I am the granddaaughter of Leon BLum Taylor born 1889 in LA. He was the grandson of A white slave owner named John Taylor. John Taylor gave his slave children some bottom land that turned out to have oil on it. Silas Taylor my grandfathers uncle owns over 300 acres of land in Claiborne County LA that has at least 20 capped oil wales and he wont share it with other familiy members. I hope to one day recover some of the land in that town for my grand children.
