You will get paid for it.
by Lisa Y. Henderson
William S. Taylor filed claim #19425 with the Southern Claims Commission. He lived in Fayetteville, where he worked as a house painter. During the war, a major, two lieutenants and chaplain came to his house, took what they wanted and said, “Oh! Sam you will get paid for it.”
Harry Clark, age 60, a Fayetteville housepainter; George D. Simmons, 38, a merchant; and Taylor’s wife of 30 years, Mary B. Taylor, testified for him.
