The old Taylor Cemetery is located in Logan County on the Rebecca Taylor homestead on the South bank of Little Petit Jean Creek. It has 17 graves and is fenced with barb wire. It was established in 1865 or possibly before. It is located on National Forest land. It is about one half mile Southwest of the new Taylor Cemetery. The new Taylor Cemetery was established in 1891 when a family living on the North side of the creek could not get to the old Taylor Cemetery because of a flood is also in Logan County.
