Notes for Richard Albert Belsham: This could have been the Richard Belsham who emigrated to Canada and became a Baptist Minister in Lloydminster (1908-1909) and Oshawa, however, other notes suggest that the Llyodminster Belsham was Richard E. Belsham.
Richard A. Belsham graduated from Spurgeon's College in London, taught school for a few years, then served as Pastor of a Baptist Church in Melbourn, Cambs from 1894-1905. He met Annie Ferry at the Crystal Palace in London, at a singing festival. He was a tenor and she was a soprano. They also played piano and organ. After his marriage to Annie, he went to the USA for his honeymoon. He then visited with his brother in the USA and stayed several years. Their first daughter, Ava, and their first son were born at this time. They returned to Melbourne in England, where Jerry and Rose were born. They went back to the United States where Annie died.
Richard re-married after four years, to Evalyn Olme from Antlanta, Georgia.

Editorial in Newspaper; Caring, Editor, Virginian-Pilot - The passing of Mrs. W. R. (Jerry) Taylor of Lochhaven in Norfolk has left a void in the community. Though diminutive in stature, she possessed gigantic compassion for her fellow human beings. Often she was the first to say the kind word to those in distress. She had the magnificent obsession of doing good without personal recognition. In the book of Micah it is written: "What doth the Lord require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and walk humbly with thy God." Mrs. Taylor was one of teh very few to follow this Biblical edict. She made life a little better for all of us because of it. (Written by Gordon Dillon, Norfolk)
A Memorial Service for Geraldine Belsham Taylor who went into the presence of her Lord, Jesus Christ, on December 12, 1978. We remember her with affection and joy, and we exalt Jesus Christ, the Conqueror of Death, who brought life and immortality to light through the gospel. We comfort the family with the fact that we sorrow not as others who have no hope; for is we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even those who sleep in Jesus will God bring with him when He returns. Welcome and Prayer give by Pastor Gene Garrick. Hymn: How Great Thou Art. Scripture and Remarks: Pastor Dick Woodward. Hymn: What a Friend We Have in Jesus. Comfort and Hope from God's Word. Pastor Gene Garrick. Hymn: Bless The Lord, O My Soul. Benediction.

The News Peace, Newsletter of Physicians for Peace, Volume 4, Number 2, Summer 1993 related an article - Board Member Profile...Robert T. Taylor by Marnie Morgan, Correspondent. Robert T. Taylor, a native of Norfolk, VA, and Trustee and Treasurer of Physicians for Peace is the president of The Taylor Companies, a group of companies representing commercial warehousing, document management, salt products, and chemical storage. The very versatility of his businesses reflects Bob Taylor's management skills which he shared with other talented trustees at their meeting in Palm Beach, Fla., in May. As with many organizations, more help is needed...a separate facility for PFP offices with living/study quarters for visiting physicians. Mr. Taylor rapidly shared his ideas for PFP during the meeting and his genuine enthusiasm was transferred immediately to all who came in contact with him. His leadership skills invoke trust and confidence. The Taylor Foundation, founded by Bob Taylor's father, William, and his three brothers, D.E., Alfred, and Leslie, have guided significant support to health-related benefits of Hampton Roads, Virginia and more particularly to PFP. Originally founded to build and support a community hospital in Sea Level, North Carolina where the Taylor brothers were raised, the Foundation has continued its medical emphasis. In Hampton Roads, the Taylor Foundation has underwritten the microsurgery clinic at Eastern Virginia Medical School and, most recently, undertaken a five-year contribution of $125,000 to enhance the Medical Scholars Program of PFP. Mr. Taylor is married to the former Margo Dunaway of Conway, AR; they have two sons, Rob, 17, and Clark, 15. "Hopefully, my entire family will join me on my first overseas trip for PFP; Jordan and the West Bank are expected to be my maiden voyage. Margo and I hope to understand more about the Middle East culture and determine how to incorporate what we learn to more effectively employ the medical education formula utilized by PFP. We hope that our boys, who are a third-generation legacy of community involvement, will not only see this trip as an adventure, but will enlighten their perception of other cultures and the necessity of their generation to meet its responsibility to reach out to others." Mr. Taylor is very supportive of such groups as the Boys and Girls' Clubs, Old Dominion University, Campbell University, Fishburne Military Academy, and Norfolk Christian Schools. They are tennis and sailing enthusiasts. A devoted couple who understand the demands of caring and nuturing, the Taylors would be the first to say they work as a team. PFP is a natural outlet for the expertise of Bob Taylor. He has been involved with it since its beginning in 1985. HIs business diversity and acumen alert him to recognizing need and implementing change, a quality appreciated in the directorship of PFP. His family values reach out to the generation both before him and after him and it is these values that will help ensure the philosophy and future of PFP. Mr. Taylor has proven commitment to a healthy world through time, effort, and funding. He is well described in the adage, "If you want a job well done, ask a busy man." We at PFP are the most fortunate recipients of his talents. Charles E. Horton, M.D., PFP Chairman, acknowledges Bob's talents and says that, "His encouragement, business skillsss, and organization activities have enriched PFP throughout the world."
