Dea. Taliafero Vickers was a leading citizen in Washington township. He was born in Prince William's county, Virginia, on the 22nd of September, 1789. He came to Coshocton county in 1827. Early in life, he identified himself with the Baptists, and he died in the Wakatomika Baptist Church on Sunday, February 19, 1863. He had gone to church in his usual health, and his last utterance was "amen" spoken while the minister was reading Rev. 1:18. A moment after, the attention of the congregation was drawn to him, and those going to him found him dead.
