Historical Marker
    Samuel L. (1806-1877) and Martha (1811-1875) Taylor, their sons Moses (1846-1875), Richard (1842-1922) and Benjamin (1836-1908), with his family, were among the earliest settlers in this area known as Sand Town. They arrived here from North Carolina in 1859 with slaves Kijeah, Matilda and James, and accompanied by friends William (1803-1883) and Beulah (1810-1870) Lunn and son, E.S. (1848-1874). The Taylors prospered as farmers and livestock breeders; the tale is still told of the “race mare” sold by Moses to outlaw Sam Bass. Not all graves are marked, but the remaining stones chronicle the lives of these pioneers of the Little Elm area.
