After many headaches trying to understand the convoluted and apparently unreliable genealogies of various families of Taylors—and finally giving up—I’ve now completed and uploaded the piece on the family crest (yes, really, family crest!) of President Zachary Taylor, at http://americanheraldry.org/pages/index.php?n=President.Taylor.  Next up, probably Rutherford B. Hayes.

Is the silver snuff box still extant? Surely an item such as this should bear a silversmith’s mark which could be used to date the piece. I have many gold and silversmith’s mark identification books for North America, Great Britain, Ireland and other countries that could be used to date pieces of heraldic silver and gold.

It would be helpful, wouldn’t it?  It would also be useful to see exactly what’s engraved on it, the armored hand with lance, the bare hand with arrow, or something else.

 

Unfortunatley, I’ve found no mention of the snuff box other than Grinnan’s letter in the 1893 WMQ.  It’s hard to believe that it’s simply disappeared; on the other hand, if it’s still extant, it’s equally hard to understand why only the ring and not the snuffbox seems to have been the focus of Taylor family historians’ attention.

Joseph

Great as usual.

 

 

Minor typo (missing word) in third paragraph:

 

refer to a complete coat of arms AS a "crest,"....

 

 

Under “A Crest without Arms?”, fourth paragraph, you should remove the second "however"

 

However incorrect they may be, however, surely there must be a reason….

 

 

Under “Evaluating the Evidence”, 10th paragraph, misspelled “immediately”:

 

such strong root almost immediAtely….
