On September 2, 1962, Eva Cauley was united in holy matrimony to the late William V. Taylor in St. Louis, Missouri. To this union, one son was born. Mother Taylor professed her faith and accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior at a very early age, under the leadership of the late Rev. Watkins, at New Salem M.B. Church. While at New Salem, she was an active member in the choir and served as the church clerk. In 1979, she became a member of the Memorial M.B. Church family under the leadership of the late Rev.
