TAYLOR, John, Baptist preacher, born in Fauquier county, Virginia, in 1752 ; died in Forks of Elkhorn, Franklin County, Kentucky, in 1833. He became an itinerant missionary of the Baptist church in western Virginia at the age of twenty, and in 1783 removed to Kentucky. He resided at Clear Creek, where for three years, he was pastor of the church, till 1795, when he settled in Boone county. He preached frequently and took part in revivals of religion while devoting himself to clearing and cultivating land, and in his last years, though he declined the pastoral relation, he officiated in a church that he had assisted in organizing at Forks of Elkhorn. He published an account of his religious labors and of the churches that he had aided in founding, under the title of "A History of Ten Baptist Missions " (Bloomfield, 1826).
