Vada was born June 5, 1932, in Midland. After moving to Fort Worth, she attended Polytechnic High School where she met the love of her life and husband of 61 years, Tommy Taylor. Graduating from Texas Wesleyan University with a degree in physical education, she continued her studies at the University of North Texas. She was employed as a physical education teacher and coach by the Fort Worth Independent School District for 22 years. Because of her commitment to being a very strong and strict disciplinarian, she was greatly appreciated by her students. Her last 14 years of teaching were spent at Eastern Hills High School as a swimming coach, taking 18 swimmers and divers to state competition as well as establishing an outstanding and unique outdoor education program, where students made weekend overnight field trips. These field trips, which included canoeing down the Brazos, white water rafting, cave exploring, deep sea fishing, skeet and trap shooting, repelling, etc., greatly impacted the lives of her students. Upon completing her career as a teacher and coach, she retired with her husband to their horse and cattle ranch in Granbury. In addition to her love of family, her love for animals was unmatched by anyone as she took in every stray that she found. In her own private and very special way, Vada served the Lord with all her heart and we thank God for every remembrance of her. Philippians 1:3
She was preceded in death by her parents, Martha and Harold Loper and Bennie Bizzell; and one granddaughter, Kristen "Krissy" June Taylor.

Page 4 shows your orator and oratrix as William Taylor and Rachel Taylor (therefore the oldest son William is probably now over 21). The said William Taylor, dec'd, left a considerable personal estate which has been applied to the payment of his debts. He left the following slaves, to wit: Derry, Will, Nanny, Leah, Southy, Levi, Tagil(?), Harry, Tumar & child, all of which said Negroes now remain in the possession of the said William Taylor's admr, undivided, except Harry, Tumar & her child, which have been sold be decree of the court for the special purpose of maintaining the said William Taylor's young children and your orator & oratrix show that they are entitled to a distributive share of the said Negroes, now undivided. It also states that several of William Taylor's children are infants (under 21) and unable to do any act themselves and also entitled to a share with your orator & oratrix. The premise being considered is that certain persons be appointed to divide and set apart the slaves agreeable to equity & good conscience. Page 5 shows that Peggy Taylor, Betsy Taylor, Euphamey Taylor and Wilson Taylor, infants and children of William Taylor, dec'd, be represented by Wm. Gibb, their guardian, to the complaint of William Taylor and Rachel Taylor. Another listing of the infant children also includes a John Taylor.

They were distributed to Rachel Taylor, William Taylor, Euphamy, Peggy and Wilson. John & Betsey were to receive payments from brother William and sister Euphamy certain amounts to make the values received by all children equitable. Page 9 shows that at the March 1792 court ordered that William Downing, John Gillet, John Logan and George Corbin or any two of them, make partition of the slaves and that William Gibb be appointed guardian to the youngest children of William Taylor for the purpose of answering this bill. Page 13 shows that on 27 Aug 1792 that John Logan, Peter Delastatius & William Downing sold slaves Harry, Thamer & child Leah to Jno. Wharton for a total of £66.10.0.

Page 46 shows that in 1767 Negroes belonging to George Abbott were hired out, showing the names of the Negroes and to whom they were hired to. Page 49 shows a similar list for 1768.

Pages 1-16 include the suit proceedings and pages 17-67 are what is assumed to be William Taylor's account book. Page 2 shows her children as William, Peggy, Betsy, Euphamy, John & Wilson, who were infants (under age 21) when the suit was first submitted. Page 4 shows your orator and oratrix as William Taylor and Rachel Taylor (therefore the oldest son William is probably now over 21). The said William Taylor, dec'd, left a considerable personal estate which has been applied to the payment of his debts. He left the following slaves, to wit: Derry, Will, Nanny, Leah, Southy, Levi, Tagil(?), Harry, Tumar & child, all of which said Negroes now remain in the possession of the said William Taylor's admr, undivided, except Harry, Tumar & her child, which have been sold be decree of the court for the special purpose of maintaining the said William Taylor's young children and your orator & oratrix show that they are entitled to a distributive share of the said Negroes, now undivided. It also states that several of William Taylor's children are infants (under 21) and unable to do any act themselves and also entitled to a share with your orator & oratrix. The premise being considered is that certain persons be appointed to divide and set apart the slaves agreeable to equity & good conscience. Page 5 shows that Peggy Taylor, Betsy Taylor, Euphamey Taylor and Wilson Taylor, infants and children of William Taylor, dec'd, be represented by Wm. Gibb, their guardian, to the complaint of William Taylor and Rachel Taylor. Another listing of the infant children also includes a John Taylor. Page 7 shows that on 5 June 1792 William Downing, John Logan & Geo. Corbin partitioned the slaves of William Taylor (B.S.) (blacksmith) dec'd, among the complainants and respondents (after setting aside the widow's dower) as follows: Slaves to be divided - Derry, Will, Nan, Leiv, Leah, Southey & Sall. They were distributed to Rachel Taylor, William Taylor, Euphamy, Peggy and Wilson. John & Betsey were to receive payments from brother William and sister Euphamy certain amounts to make the values received by all children equitable. Page 9 shows that at the March 1792 court ordered that William Downing, John Gillet, John Logan and George Corbin or any two of them, make partition of the slaves and that William Gibb be appointed guardian to the youngest children of William Taylor for the purpose of answering this bill. Page 13 shows that on 27 Aug 1792 that John Logan, Peter Delastatius & William Downing sold slaves Harry, Thamer & child Leah to Jno. Wharton for a total of £66.10.0. Page 15 shows that the account of sales of the estate of William Taylor was dated 13 Aug 1772. Pages 17-44 of William Taylor's account book shows entries from 1762 thru 1771. Page 46 shows that in 1767 Negroes belonging to George Abbott were hired out, showing the names of the Negroes and to whom they were hired to. Page 49 shows a similar list for 1768. Page 50 shows that on 13 Aug 1773 a bed and furniture was sold. Page 51 shows that on 13 Aug 1772 & 8 Jan 1773 there were other sales include a Negro and land. Page 57 shows a list of credits on 2 Nov 1769 and there are various other entries thru page 67.1

Chancery suit*27 December 1820He was named in a chancery suit on 27 December 1820 at Accomack Co, VA. The bill of complaint of Colemore Bird & Hetty his wife, formerly Hetty Taylor, state that Abednigo Taylor, late of this county, owned in his own right negroes slaves. In the fall of 1811 he went to the West Indies in the Schooner ______ commanded by Captain Crippen Taylor Jr of this county and owned by Crippen & Thorowgood Taylor, merchants of the county. That your orator & oratrix have understood and believe that it was expected that the said vessel would return to this county about Christmas in the same year 1811. That the said schooner arrived safely in the West Indies and after transacting their business about the 3 day of December 1811 bounty to the country, having on board the said Abednigo Taylor and the rest of the crew. After they had been at sea about twenty days and probably near the American Coast, a sever gale of wind came on and a number of vessels were lost. The said schooner was spotted by another vessel the day before the gale of wind came on, bound direct to this county and being only about 100 miles from Cape Henry the said schooner and her crew have not been heard from by her owners, or the friends of any persons on board and no doubt but that she and her whole crew were lost in said gale of wind. They further show that at the time of the death of said Abednigo Taylor, he left no will, nor did he leave any widow or children, but left his father Teackle Taylor living. They have been informed that by the laws of this Commonwealth that on the death of Abednigo Taylor his father was entitled to the aforesaid slaves and took possession thereof and held them until his death. He died intestate in January 1813 leaving four children: your orator Hetty, and James B. Taylor, Henry Taylor and Samuel Taylor. They are advised that the aforesaid slaves, as well as the other estate of the said Teackle Taylor, dec'd, are due to them. They further show that since the death of Teackle Taylor the aforesaid James B. Taylor and Henry Taylor have taken possession of said slaves and have all of them in their possession except two, one of whom is now in the possession of Michael Robins and another in the possession of Thorowgood Taylor, both of who alleged that they purchased them from the said James B. Taylor and Henry Taylor. Your orator & oratrix presume that such a purchase cannot affect the rights of you oratrix, being at the time of her marriage with your orator which took place in 1820, under that age of 21 and still being under that age. The orator states that since his marriage to your oratrix, he has frequently applied to James B. Taylor, Henry Taylor, Samuel Taylor and Thorowgood Taylor and Michael Robins and furthermore that the said Michael & Thorowgood should surrender up the slaves purchased by them and the said James B. Taylor & Henry Taylor would consent that all the slaves belonging to Abedingo Taylor should be equally divided in an amicable way without the expense of a law suit among your orator (in right of your oratrix) and James B., Henry & Samuel Taylor. But since they did not comply your orator & oratrix have brought suit.
On 1 Sep 1820 James B. Taylor, Henry Taylor, Samuel Taylor, Thorowgood Taylor and Michael Robins were summoned to appear in court on 27 Sep 1820 to answer the above bill in Chancery exhibited against they by Colemore Bird and Hetty his wife.
(NOTE: The suit also outlined that if the defendants did not prove otherwise, commissioners would determine the value of all the slaves which would be divided equally by commissioners between the late Abednigo Taylor's four sibling named in the suit.)2
