This 3-legged stool is one of many that Robert Burke Taylor made. It's at least 70 years old and my mother still uses it as a vanity stool when she puts on her makeup. Bob was the the son of James Francis Taylor and Margaret E. Ramsey and the brother of my great grandfather, John C. Taylor. According to my mother, he liked to make these stools and also 3-legged tables.
Uncle Bob was born on 4 Aug 1870 and died on 11 Aug 1948. He never married, had no children and lived his entire life in Rockcastle County, Kentucky in the house where he was born between Mt. Vernon and Renfro Valley.
