I noticeted that you have the same ancesters in your file, as I have in mine. E-mail me at and we can try to see if we are from the same line. I am almost sure that we are. My Grandmother had a sister, Nancy Jane Saylor, and there were several other names also that I could identify.

You mentioned that you remembered Sarah Elizabeth Saylor Jackson and John Saylor being blind in your info. Do you know why your relatives were blind? I thought it was quite interesting because also my mother, whose mother was a Saylor, had an hereditary eye disease, retinitis pigmentosa. She went blind gradually. My Uncle Bill, mother's brother, was born blind with the same disease. If you have any additional information, please e-mail me at:

Thanks, Joyce

I was so very young maybe less then 5 years old (I have a death certificate some where and have been to his grave) that I do not have a clue to John Saylor blindness cause, but I will ask my older brother as he is 4 years older then I am. Sarah Elizabeth Saylor Jackson was not blind. If I remember correctly John may not have been completly blind. Seems as though I sent you a email directly to your do you remember getting it. There are none of the elders left from our Grandfather Benjamin Saylor. Nice to hear from you again, sorry not to be more help. I wear bifocals, have wore glasses since 10 years old, my wife think most all of my dads children wear glasses including him, his is Lloyd Saylor.
