A Taylor-Made Tree

An Ahnentafel for Zachary Taylor, 12th President of the United States, depicts his descent from Mayflower passengers Isaac Allerton and William Brewster. Through Col. Richard Lee, President Taylor shared kinship to Gen. Robert E. Lee. Other surnames in his family tree include: Barker, Bayly, Brewster, Constable, Dabney, Hancock, Harte, Jeffreys, Savage, Strother, Thompson, Thornton, and Willoughby. Another descendant of William Brewster is Sydney Biddle Barrows, the scandalous “Mayflower Madam.”
