Biographical Note

Joseph W. Taggart was born and raised in Newport, Rhode Island. He attended the Hamilton Theological and Literary Institute (now Colgate University) and graduated with the class of 1833. He was ordained in Fayetteville, NY, on July 2, 1833, and served as a pastor there from 1832-1835. From 1835 to 1880, he served as a pastor in Homer, NY; Syracuse, NY; New York City; Detroit, Michigan; Wheeling, West Virginia; Manlius, NY; and Euclid, NY. Well-liked by many of his congregation, Taggart frequently kept in touch with his parishoners after leaving their parish. From 1883-1893 he was an invalid in Syracuse, where he died on September 3, 1893.

Scope and Contents Note

While attending the Hamilton Theological Seminary, Joseph W. Taggart received letters from his father and siblings that kept him informed about what was going on at home while he was at school. Reading these letters reveals a little of the family dynamics in the Taggart household, as well as some of their family relationships. While not included in the collection, Taggart's own letters home are sometimes referenced in the letters that he received from his family. A combination of letters, journals, and notebooks span the time period from 1830 to 1892 and occasionally touch on such subjects as slavery and secession.
