Taylor graduated from Union College in 1803 as valedictorian of his class. Then he studied law,was admitted to the bar in 1807,and practiced in Ballston Spa,New York. In 1806,he married Jane Hodge (died 1838),of Albany,New York,and they had eight children. He was a member from Saratoga County of the New York State Assembly in 1812 and 1812–13.
