COL WALTER H. TAYLOR.
Colonel Walter II. Taylor was born In
Norfolk In the old Taylor homestead
(now occupied by General Richard L.
I Page), at the corner of Preemason and
I Duke streets. Ho Is the son of Walter
H. Taylor and Cornelia Taylor. His
mother's maiden name was Cornelia.
Col. Taylor wan educated nt Norfolk
Academy and the Virginia Military in?
stitute at Lexington. Vn., receiving a
good academic and military education.
The hoys from this institute later bo
! came in a>large degree, prominent in
the ranks of the South during the civil
war. but a complete list would include
, hundreds of men who have attained
I distinction in military and civil life.
Col. Taylor graduated with honor
from the Virginia Military InsttUte In
the class of IS57. After graduating he
spent several years In the State Hank
of Virginia in this city until the break?
ing out of the wa.r. He was then com?
missioned as lieutenant In Volunteer
Company P, of Norfolk, but soon after
the State seceded he received telegraph?
ic orders to report lr> adjutant of the
State forces at Richmond. Here he
was .assigned to duty in General Rob
i ort B. Lee's office, and at the latter's re?
quest, was soon after commissioned in
' the regular army In Confederate ser
: vice as Lieutenant and assigned to duty
as aide do camp to General Lee. Ho
; accompanied General Lee on his visit to
Western Virginia in the fall of 1801.
j General Lee had but two staff offl
: ct i s during the period of his service

! Ir-gton i rather of Mrs. Beverly D. Tuck?
er, of Norfolk), was killed while mak?
ing a reconnolsr.nce at Valley Moun?
tain in September. ISfil.
Ci.loitel Taylor then became General
Lee's sole staff officer and so remained
until his return to Richmond, lie also
accompanied General "Lee during his
? period of service in. the Department of

: thin closing the formal program. Thei
throngs then dispersed, thousands go
? Ing to the vnrloua cemeteries by ears
j nnd carriages, where they decorated the
I graves of the soldlcr? of the confed?
eracy with flowena and Hags. The
graven of two of our soldier boys, who
died as the result .if service in the war
with Spain?Sergeant Major Diem and
Corporal Lnsslter- were especially con.
spicu??fl by reason of the wealth of
floral tributes plnced upon them.
Citizens generally nlfo strewed
j flowers on the graved of their loved
I one's and these combined to make a
I very pleasing appearance.
The decorations having been placed,
the people returned to Norfolk. About
7:30 p. m., the Portsmouth and Berkley
veterans were escorted to the ferry,
the Norfolk organizations dividing to
lot them pass through and saluting
Georgia and Florida. He returned with
General Leo to Virginia and on the as?
sumption l?y General Lee of the per?
sonal command of the Army of North?
ern Virginia, Colonel Taylor became bis
adjutant general and so remained until
the close of the war.
: After the war Col. Taylor returned to
' Norfolk and resumed a business life.

' years, a member of the directory of the
Norfolk and Western Railway. He is
president of the Greenleaf-Johnson

Col. Taylor has .also lately establish?
