Taylor, Edward J., is a member of one of the oldest and most respected families in Niagara county. His grandfather and great-grandfather were natives of New Jersey, and his father was born and reared in Niagara county. Edward J. was born in the town of Lockport January 2, 1856. He attended the Lockport schools and received a liberal education. After spending some time on a farm he entered the law off-ice of Farnell & Burrell as a student, and April 4, 1880, was admitted to the bar. After spending some time in the West he returned to Lockport and opened an office for the general practice of law, which he has since pursued with marked success. February 17, 1879, Mr. Taylor married May L., daughter of Sylvester G. Root of Lockport.
