From the description of Autographs, 1877-1880. (Denver Public Library). WorldCat record id: 13710628

Hugh Taylor, resident of Douglas County since 1874, passed from this life at the home of his grandson, William Hugh Priddy at 168 South Emerson St., Denver, on Saturday, September 30. 1939 at the age of ninety years, six months and twenty-eight days.

He was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on March 2nd, 1849. He came to Colorado in company with Mr. John Pollock, who also was prominent in the early day history of Douglas County, in 1874, two years before statehood was granted to Colorado. Arriving in Colorado he established his home here in Douglas County, where he maintained his residence until his death. In his early life he followed the profession of painter.

He was active in republican politics throughout his life and held many positions of public trust in County and State, all of which he filled with satisfaction to the public and with credit to himself.

In the county, he served as County Judge, County Assessor, Clerk of the District Court and other positions of trust. In the early days of the county he operated a drug store and was postmaster for a time. From 1901 to 1912 he filled the position of Receiver of the United States Land Office at Denver. Later he served Douglas County as representative in the state legislature.

In 1890, he was united in marriage to Mrs. Lydia Owens, who preceded him in death several years ago.

For several years past and until four years ago, he acted as Clerk of the District Court of Douglas County, relinquishing that office on account of failing health.

Mr. Taylor was a man of high ideals. He was interested in the better things in life and kept himself posted on the goings on of the work-a-day world. He had a philosophy of life which could be well emulated by all. Thus passes from this life's stage a willing worker, a loyal friend and neighbor, and a fine citizen.
