Nathaniel Green Taylor[edit]

It looks like we had some major edit conflicts on Nathaniel Green Taylor. I'll stay away for now. You should know that none of the sources I've seen confirm birth at Sabine Hill. His father may have lived in a different house in Happy Valley... --Orlady (talk) 22:35, 6 February 2014 (UTC)

Removed. I'm finished editing it for now, if you have any further changes to make. Bms4880 (talk) 22:48, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
I think a dozen sources placed Taylor at New Orleans, but I found this: [1]. I'll update the other Taylor articles. Bms4880 (talk) 23:00, 6 February 2014 (UTC)
There's a lot of garbage out there, isn't there? Genealogies and local histories tend toward hagiography. One of the more credible sources I read indicated that Nathaniel Taylor was actually a lousy military leader and saw no action in the war. (That's a short overview -- there were some disparaging details.) --Orlady (talk) 03:26, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
That would explain why he's still a giant redlink. Temple's East Tennessee and the Civil War, Speer's Sketches of Prominent Tennesseans, and that book on the Taylor brothers, among others, all mentioned him as a veteran of New Orleans. Seeing it multiple times across numerous sources I didn't think twice about it, even though most of the sources are very outdated (and in Speer's case, embarrassingly "hagiographical"). Bms4880 (talk) 03:46, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
I've also seen wildly varying life dates for Nathaniel Taylor. Death dates ranging from 1815 to 1820 and birth dates as early as 1760. And I'm still puzzled about the possible causes for the error in the National Register, which allegedly has 1796 as the date that Sabine Hill was built. (That was the date given in the NRIS-only version of the article before I started working on it.)
The source that gave an unflattering view of Nathaniel Turner's military service is the Cox book, [2]. It's published by a vanity-type publisher, but it looks like fairly solid research. --Orlady (talk) 04:15, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
I'll check some sources in our library for his dates of birth/death, but I doubt I'll find anything conclusive. Did NRIS give 1796 as the date of construction, or was that just listed as a critical date? Bms4880 (talk) 19:10, 7 February 2014 (UTC)
Multiple sources give specific birth and death dates in 1771 and 1816, so I think those are valid. The sources with other dates tend to be a bit vague about the date -- and I suspect there might be some typos in at least one of them (e.g., 1815 instead of 1816). As for 1796, I haven't verified it against the actual data record in NRIS, but Elkman's interface shows it is listed in NRIS as date of construction. That's just one of several date discrepancies I've seen recently involving NRIS, but it's the only one where I'm sure NRIS is mistaken (maybe a data-entry error by a clerk who saw a reference to 1796 somewhere in the paper record). If 1796 had any basis, I think it would be mentioned in either HABS or the MTSU students' report on the house. --Orlady (talk) 20:05, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

FWIW, the article does have a National Register infobox. --Orlady (talk) 16:29, 11 March 2014 (UTC)
I just added the embedded infobox and a new section for the tower. I may add more to the article shortly. Bms4880 (talk) 17:07, 11 March 2014 (UTC)

Tennessee photos[edit]

Beyond what I've uploaded already, I'm planning to upload photos of the following sites:

  • Claiborne County: Cumberland Gap HD (the historic buildings in the town, not the gap itself) and Grant-Lee Hall at Lincoln Memorial University
  • McMinn County: William Lowry House, Old College, Trinity United Methodist Church, John A. Turley House
  • Montgomery County: Clarksville Industrial District, Clarksville Methodist Church, Emerald Hill, Madison Street HD, Old Post House

I also have some photos in Alabama, Mississippi, and Kentucky that I'm preparing for upload. Let me know if you want any of those names. Nyttend (talk) 21:20, 29 April 2014 (UTC)

After leaving this note, I observed that you were in Knoxville; I suppose you're not planning to go all the way to Clarksville, let alone Alcorn County, Mississippi. On the other hand, if you're up for a drive, you might go to Keokee VA: I photographed all the Lee County locations except for the one in Keokee (it was too dark), so you'd get us another fully-illustrated county if you took the drive. Nyttend (talk) 23:27, 29 April 2014 (UTC)
No, unfortunately. I spent too much time in Alabama on that trip (got stuck in Huntsville traffic) and had to skip several sites that I'd been planning to get. But if you're vaguely down that way, would you be able to pick up the Hiwassee Garrison Site, the only unillustrated site in Rhea County? Judging by Google Maps, including Street View, you should experience unfettered rightofway as far as the Garrison Cemetery, 35°26′33″N 84°59′21″W / 35.44250°N 84.98917°W / 35.44250; -84.98917, and from there it should be easy to get a photo toward the river toward the southeast. Meanwhile, is there any chance of getting Meigs County photos? Even though I've added three images there, the county's less than 1/6 illustrated. Nyttend (talk) 00:02, 3 May 2014 (UTC)
Ah, okay; I assumed you were driving down from Knoxville to Marion County, and thus you'd be going around metro Chattanooga both ways and have an easy time just going upriver into Rhea and Meigs. Nyttend (talk) 01:35, 3 May 2014 (UTC)

Hello Bms4880, Where do you find census info on Census county divisions?? They are not listed in the American factfinder website. --ACase0000 (talk) 04:55, 18 May 2014 (UTC)

From what I can tell, Tennessee didn't use them for the 2010 census. Bms4881 (talk) 19:40, 18 May 2014 (UTC)
Then where did someone get info for Strawberry Plains, Tennessee and Wears Valley, Tennessee?? --ACase0000 (talk) 16:07, 19 May 2014 (UTC)
I've reverted the Wears Valley population to the 2000 census. It appears you added the Strawberry Plains population [3]. Do you recall where you obtained that figure? Bms4881 (talk) 22:33, 19 May 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for the excellent article on Jackie Walker! Even though I am now a full-blown Alabama fan, I am from Knoxville and grew up rooting for the Vols.
