"To the family of Henry Lindsey Taylor, My name is George Johnson and am now a resident of Rehoboth Beach, DE. However I grew up in Oxford and my father was the editor of the paper there. I sang in the St. Stephen's Choir with 'Kink' as was his nickname in the 1950's! In fact I have a photo of the choir from that era, which my father made, in which Kink can be seen...with his crewcut...in the fashion of the times! Also other contemporaries of ours, Dick Taylor and others are in the photo. Dixie Taylor, Kink's Mother is there as well. They, as did we, also lived on Front St. in Oxford. I was very sorry to read of his death; I have wondered over the years...what ever happened to him; sorry that I found out too late. Kink was 80 and I am 78, so he was a bit older than me. I extend my deepest sympathy to Martha, his wife, and to his child Sarah and the 2 grandchildren. Sorry to keep using his nickname, but that is the name that I always will remember! Sincerely, George Frederick Johnson....11 Wauwinet Court, Rehoboth Beach, DE 19971
