John C. Taylor Claimed By Death
Illness Of Some Weeks Proves Fatal To Prominent Canton Doctor
Was One of Trigg County's Most Popular And Highly Respected Citizens
Mr. John C. Taylor, prominent physician and splendid citizen, died Monday night about nine o'clock at his home in Canton. He had been in poor health for some weeks from a complication of troubles. He had been under care of specialists, but was in Cadiz last Saturday and told friends he was feeling better. The sudden change for the worse came Monday about one o'clock, and he never rallied.
Dr. Taylor was fifty nine years of age the 27th of last February and was born at Linton Tenn. His father was the late J. Crus Taylor, and the mother a sister of the late Henry G. Vinson.
For some years the father resided at Golden Pond, where he practiced his profession. During that time our own Dr. J. C. Taylor studied medicine at the old University of Nashville, and for almost forty years had been engaged in the practice at Canton.
About the time he located at Canton he was married to Miss Emma Lee Hopson, and an only son, Mr. Clarence Taylor, now a prominent druggist of Nashville, blessed that union. The wife also survives him.
Dr. Taylor is also survived by two brothers, W. W. Taylor, a prominent business man of Nashville, and Dr. James Taylor, of Waynesboro, Tenn., a sister Mrs. Sallie Cole, has been dead for some years, and three half sisters and one half brother survive him.
Dr. Taylor had long enjoyed a splendid and lucrative practice and Trigg county could boast of no more clever citizen than he. He was kind and jolly, interested in his many patients, and as a friend and neighbor was ever ready to be of help to others.
He will be greatly missed among his host of friends and admirers all over Trigg county.
Dr. Taylor was a member of the Christian church and had been for many years holding his membership at Cadiz, and was a frequent attendant at the services of the church here.
Brief funeral services were held at the home in Canton yesterday afternoon, and burial followed at East End Cemetery in Cadiz with short services at the grave. The pastor, Rev. C. C. Monin, conducted the funeral services.
