Blennerhassett’s Gardener: Watertown Twp.

August 2, 2014
Marietta Times

In describing the settlement of the West Branch of Wolf Creek, H. Z. Williams' History of Washington County states: "Peter Taylor, who was brought from England by Blennerhassett and employed by him as gardener, after the ruin of his patron's estate became a resident of this valley." (p. 623) Peter Taylor was born about 1761 in Cheshire County, England. By 1803 he was on Blennerhassett's Island where he managed Blennerhassett's farm and beautiful two and one-third acre flower gardens.
