Hello, I am Betty(Taylor)Sunderland, one of many nieces of George's I would love to hear from anyone who knew him. I am writting a book on the whole Taylor family and have little to write of about George as a person.I was so young when he died. He had 10 brothers and 3 sisters all gone now except for 2 (2001)
