Note on Husband: Enos Ayers AXTELL

b. June 13, 1843, he entered the U.S. Army in April 1861 in the 14th N.Y. and

later became Captain. He also served in the Navy for three years as engineer.

He lived in Kansas City for 35 years and became an influential Republican

ward leader. He married a Southern girl, Catherine Taylor, of Fairfax Co.,

Va., a cousin of Zachary Taylor, a romance of the battlefield; his dramatic

meeting with his future wife in the war furnished the basis for Marie

Correlli's "A Romance of Two Worlds." At the battle of Fall's Church in 1861

he was on the skirmish line that ran across a yard where a Southern home had

just been wrecked by the explosion of a shell. Captain Axtell stopped long

enough to help a 17-year-old girl who was fleeing from the house. Here a

romance started, that in spite of parental opposition resulted in an

elopement and marriage, after the close of the war. He was killed by a street

car in front of his own home in Kansas City on April 5, 1906. She died in

Kansas City in March 1928.

Note on Wife: Catherine TAYLOR

of Fairfax Co., Va., a cousin of Zachary Taylor.
