Creed Taylor was a giant in early Texas—but his accomplishments are overshadowed by the deeds of his kin.

Taylor was born in Texas in 1820.  At the age of 15, he went off to fight in the Revolution; he was at the Battle of San Jacinto.  In 1841, he enlisted with the Texas Rangers to fight Indians and Mexicans.  He participated in the Mexican-American War and then the Civil War. But after that, Creed was pulled into the Sutton-Taylor Feud; his brother and sons helped start the war. All three died. Creed lived on until 1906.
