My 3rd cousin, 6x removed, Mary Elizabeth Taylor, was one of six children born to President Zachary Taylor and First Lady Margaret Mackall (Smith). The evidence hinges on the educated assumption of family genealogists (http://www.jessee.org/) regarding (Frances Lea – w/o John Jessee).

  1. Ann Margaret Mackall Taylor
  2. Sarah Knox Taylor (m. Jefferson Davis)
  3. Octavia Pannill Taylor
  4. Margaret Smith Taylor
  5. Mary Elizabeth Taylor
  6. Richard Taylor

Mary Elizabeth married Colonel William Wallace Smith Bliss on December 8, 1848. After his death in 1853, she married Philip Pendelton Dandridge, 2-11-1858.
