North Central Ohio Biographies

Charles H. Taylor, who is successfully engaged in the real estate business at Mt. Vernon, is recognized as a dependable citizen of Knox County. He was born at Mt. Vernon Aug. 19, 1884, the son of Isaac P. and Eliza Taylor.

Isaac T. Taylor was born in Coshocton County, Ohio, in 1842, and his wife was a native of the same county, born in 1843. Shortly after their marriage they settled in Knox County, and Mr. Taylor became widely known in Mt. Vernon as a landscape gardener, being thus engaged from 1884 until his death in 1912, with the exception of two years which he spent in Greenwood County, Kans. He purchased a farm near Reese, but owing to the failure of crops, returned to Ohio in 1900. The farm which Mr. Taylor purchased in 1898 is now the location of one of the richest oil fields in that section of Kansas. His work as a landscape artist in Mt. Vernon may be found on such streets as Gambier, High, Vine, and Gay streets. To Mr. and Mrs. Taylor were born the following children: 1. Robert M., who died at Fresno, Calif., in 1924. 2. Margaret, married Thomas Weir, lives at Mt. Vernon. 3. Gellia, married Q. H. Pettit, lives at Columbus. 4. David Y., lives on the Taylor homestead in Mt. Vernon. 5. Charles H., the subject of this sketch. 6. Frederick A., lives at Mt. Vernon. 7. Frank, who died at the age of six years. 8. Mary, who died in infancy.

Charles H. Taylor was reared and educated in Mt. Vernon. He attended the American College of Mechano Therapy, of Chicago, Ill., in 1912, and also studied suggestive therapeutics and psychology. Mr. Taylor did not follow this profession, however, but became interested in the automobile business as a dealer in used cars, and was thus engaged from 1915 until 1918. He has since been interested in the real estate business and has offices at 9 1/2 West Vine Street. Mr. Taylor is also the owner of a well patronized barber shop in Mt. Vernon.

On Aug. 24, 1910, Mr. Taylor married Miss Coreta C. Robinson, the daughter of G. B. and Ora Robinson, of Mt. Vernon. Mr. and Mrs. Taylor have a son, Charles B., who attends Mt. Vernon High School. They reside at 209 East Burgess Street.
