Several Family Trees on Ancestry.ca indicated George Sr died in 1838 in Scotland. I have seen others that indicate England.
By the same token, even more people on Ancestry.ca indicate the 1844 death date in Canada.

Until someone comes up with solid evidence to support either death year and place, I'm afraid we can only speculate.

Personally, I haven't got a clue and would appreciate anyone with solid evidence to please come forward.

I have no new sources for information, but considering his son died 1844 for in Canada, and how often his sons records get confused with his and how much coincidence it would be to die in same year as son, I must say the evidence for a 1838 death seems very compelling!

As a side note I believe George is my 5th great grandfather from two slightly different paths.

Thanks Jackie! Okay I think that really helps take it from ambiguous to certain it wasn't 1844.

I would like to add to the post from above .

My Grandmother was Irene Evelyn Thomas born August 3, 1913 in Saskatoon, Sasketchwan, Parents were Victoria Jane Taylor and John Henry Thomas. They migrated west and settled in Matsqui/Abbotsford, British Columbia and are buried at Hazelwood Cemetery in Abbotsford.

Irene was the youngest of 8 children. 3 passed young , Kathleen approx. 3 , Clifford Campbell approx. 2, and a newborn baby .

Her surviving Siblings were: 1) Lilian Thomas ( she didn't have a middle name) 2)Hilliard Hunter Thomas, (went by Bill), 3) Lesley Lewellen Thomas (went by Les) 4) Vera Louise Thomas ( my auntie Louise)

I never had the pleasure of meeting my Great Aunt Lil as she had passed by the time I was born. I never met any of my grandmother's siblings except for my Auntie Louise . I did see my grandmother's brother Les at my grandmother's funeral.


From the Above Posts:
George Taylor Sr 1759-1838, m Jane
son George Taylor Jr 1798-1844, m Jane Prince 1808-1897
son Thomas Taylor 1843-1875, m Mary Ann Young 1853-1931
daughter Victoria Jane Taylor 1870-1955, m John Henery Thomas 1866-1944 ****** ( My Great Grandparents)
daughter Lilian Thomas 1894-1979, m Thomas R Taylor 1878-1969**** ** ( My Grandmother's Eldest Sister)
daughter Mary Vera Taylor 1918-1994, m William (Bill) E Krieger 1918-2007
son Robert John Krieger 1950-2011, m Lorrie Jean Haight 1954- Present
son Matt Krieger 1982 - present,

George Taylor Sr. 1759 - 1838 would be my 4 times Great grandfather.
from My Direct Lineage:
George Taylor Sr 1759-1838, m Jane
son George Taylor Jr 1798-1844, m Jane Prince 1808-1897
son Thomas Taylor 1843-1875, m Mary Ann Young 1853-1931
daughter Victoria Jane Taylor 1870-1955, m John Henery Thomas 1866-1944
daughter Irene Evelyn Thomas 1913-1990 marries Frank Alfred Gosling 1904-1989
son Jack Gosling 1938-2015 marries Audrey C. (living)
Daughter Loretta (me)

My Grandmother was born when her mother was in her 40s and her sibling were older. She told me her sister Lil had a daughter Mary and even though she was Mary's Aunt, they were best friends growing up as they were the same age.
