Charles R. Taylor, photographer, was found in the US census of 1900 and 1910, living in Lamar, MO. and in the 1880 US census as photographer living in Louisville, IL. There were no city directory listings.

No documents have been found about his partner Swan. There were four photographers named Swan about that time, in Vermont, Iowa, Maine and New York. So far no connections have been made.

Swan and Taylor, Swan and Turnbull. Is this the same photographer Swan? Lamar, MO, is only 29 miles from Neveda, MO. More research pending.
