Note: http://www.joycetice.com/1897/ch60d.htm Brown's 1897 History of Tioga County, Pennsylvania COL. PHILIP TAYLOR, son of Ebenezer and Polly Taylor, is a well-remembered farmer of Osceola, where he cleared and improved the farm now owned by Charles B. Hoyt. He was married by Nathaniel Seely, Esq., June 2, 1825, to Sally Ryon, a daughter of Judge John and Susannah Ryon, who settled on the site of Elkland in the spring of 1811. She was born in Newtown, now a part of Elmira, New York, December 28, 1808, the eldest in a family of twelve children, six of whom are living. Mrs. Taylor became the mother of eight children, seven of whom survive, as follows: Polly, who married Jeremiah Stoddard; Charlotte R., widow of Prof. I. G. Hoyt; Hiram, Susan, who married J. B. Payne; Helen M., who married Augustus Smith; Charles R., and Permelia, who married P. G. Wass. Mr. Taylor was a colonel in the militia prior to the Rebellion, hence his title. He filled several local offices in the township at different periods, and took an active interest in public affairs. Colonel Taylor and wife united with the Presbyterian church of Elkland, March 12, 1859, and remained consistent members until their death. He died in 1866. His wife survived him thirty years, dying in Osceola, Sunday morning, March 1, 1896, in the eighty-eighth year of her age, one of the last links that bound the historic past to the eventful and changing present.
