Brooken T. Taylor was born and raised in Henderson county. In early life, he obtained hope in Christ and united with the church. Having been licensed to preach, he went to Georgetown College, where he completed his course, not far from 1854. He then took charge of the church at Columbia in Adair county. Here he labored with very remarkable success, about four years. From Columbia, he was called to the church at New Castle in Henry county, where he remained about two years. In 1860, he was called to Owensboro, where he labored only a short time. From this point, he moved to Henderson county, where he served several churches in Little Bethel Association, from 1862 to i867. He also served that Association as moderator, three years. About 1868, he moved to Missouri where he still labors.
Mr. Taylor is a man of a high order of talents and extraordinary preaching gifts. Few men have displayed more intellectual power in the pulpit, in Kentucky, or enjoyed a higher degree of success in the ministry.
