my children's seize quartiers: quarter 2: Matlack

Mildred Ann Matlack (1861-1939), of Louisville, Kentucky, was daughter of Samuel Matlack, Civil War veteran and a Louisville magistrate, and Mildred Ann Gregory. She married on 5 July 1892, Henry Barnes Taylor (1863-1926). They had two children. She died at Louisville, 13 March 1939, and is buried at Cave Hill Cemetery.

I have not yet found out the full ancestry, but these Matlacks appear to be a branch of the Quaker Matlacks of New Jersey and Pennsylvania, who produced Timothy Matlack, a Pennsylvania politician who was the engrosser (calligrapher) of the signed fair-copy of the Declaration of Independence, for the Continental Congress.

This photograph of Mildred Ann Matlack appears to date from about the time of her marriage.
