Logan County, Colorado
Elizabeth proved up a quarter in 21, 8N 49W in 1895.
She's probably the Eliza Taylor who cash-claimed a quarter in 35, 7N 49W in 1890 - seven miles away.
ONE POSSIBLE BUT UNLIKELY
In 1900 Florence Colorado, J.W. Taylor is a stone mason, married eight years to Elizabeth. They have Anna B. 7, Samuel 5, and Maggie J. 2. That's a long way away, and the timing isn't too good to have kids and homestad.
John W. Taylor aged 67, died in Pueblo February 19, 1917, buried in Roselawn # 106692886.
In 1930 Pueblo, Colorado, Margaret Scrogin is a waitress, 26, with her son Robert Carr 10. Mother Elizabeth Taylor, widowed, 64, and Robert B. 24 a laborer, and Samuel S. 35 a truck driver are wtih her.
Elizabeth Taylor married John H. Mastin about 1888, and they were in Nemaha County, Nebraaka in 1900, with Glen 11 Guyh 9 and Ivan 7 all born in Nebraska. So the timing is off for her.
ANOTHER POSSIBLE - this one is closer geographically.
" Albert Elmer Biggs Mar. 9, 1862 Tama Co. IA. He is single and working on farm of John and Catherine Akerman in Benton, Keokuk Co. IA in 1880. He married Mary Elizabeth Taylor born March of 1862 WI, died 1912 Big Springs, Dueul Co. NE, buried Hillside Cemetery, Sedgwick Co. NE, daughter of William Howard Taylor and Elizabeth A. Simpson. They had:
a. Elizabeth Ellen Biggs Oct. 31, 1890 Oshkosk, Garden Co. NE
b. Jesse William Biggs June 20, 1894 NE
c. Florence Edith Biggs February of 1897 WI"
In 1900 Albert March 1863 born in Iowa is married ten years to Mary E. March 1862 Wisconsin. Bessie 9 and Jessie 5 were born in Nebraska, Florence 3 in Wisconsin. So the timing isn't too good for a homestead and having kids.
