Walter E. Taylor of Hillsboro died in early February 1942, according to Hillboro Argus 5 February 1942.

W. E. Taylor is owner in the North 1/2, Lot 139, in the IOOF section of Hillsboro Pioneer Cemetery; and owner in Lit 13North, of the Masonic Section.

Reading of Hillsboro Pioneer, done in 1970's "O (Q?).M. Taylor" : a curbing around two grave spaces, also a concrete base that had an inscription scratched in, but time and weather erased it, a temporary marker was standing at that time also, but not data left" Also in that lot the dates April 8, 1887 -February 19, 1914 which seem to match:
