On January 9, 1922, Reverend Aaron Taylor, Sr. was born to Reverend R. V. Taylor and Sister Ada Taylor in Moulton, Texas. He was the first child of five children born to this union. Rev. Taylor was educated in the Gonzales school system. He received his religious education by attending various pastoral studies, workshops and conferences.

Rev. Taylor met Geneva Wilson in Glidden, Texas and pursued a courtship which ended in marriage on August 29, 1942. Three children were born to this union, Roosevelt Taylor, Jessie Mae Taylor Mcshan and Aaron Taylor, Jr.

Rev. Taylor joined Rockfort Church at an early age. When he moved to Austin in 1947 he united with the Ulit Avenue Baptist Church in 1950, under Rev. W. M. Webb, where he was called into the ministry in 1952.

Beginning in 1959, Rev. Taylor pastored and labored at the Lone Star Missionary Baptist Church in Bastrop, Texas for 45 years. Prior to serving at Lone Star, he pastored at the Mt. Zion Baptist Church in Jonah, Texas. Rev. Taylor also served as the President of the Bastrop Subdistrict of the St. John Baptist District Association for a number of years.

In the early seventies, Rev. and Sister Taylor moved to Manor where they resided until 2003. The Taylors and their extended family enjoyed many happy days under the trees in the front of their Blake Manor Road residence and shared countless joyous holidays in their home. Rev. Taylor also enjoyed ranching and carpentry and he loved to sin "I Am On the Battlefield."

Rev. Taylor leaves to cherish his memory, his wife of 68 years, Sister Geneva Taylor; son, Aaron Jr. (Sharon); daughter Jessie Mae (Otis) McShan; sister, Mary Lee Williams; sister-in-law, Pauline Taylor; and a host of in-laws, cousins, grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, and many, many friends.
