August Birthdays, 2009! Part One

August First throughout history? Let’s look at some dates and events!

1774– The element oxygen is discovered for the third (and last) time—not sure what that means, but it sounds interesting!!
1941 – The first Jeep is produced.
1981: MTV debuts--The first music video shown on MTV was "Video Killed the Radio Star" by The Buggles

But, for the TaylorBakers, August Fifth is also a terrific day—while American knows August the Fifth for the beginnings of Income Tax to help defray the cost of the Civil War (1861) and for the debut of American Bandstand (1957)—we have birthdays to celebrate on that date in history! Five of them, to be exact:

We begin with the twins, William Lloyd Taylor and Daniel Floyd Taylor.

And, in Doris’s Family, August the Fifth is the BIG day for Charles William Francis Hawkes ( Uncle Bud), Heather Walker Towlson (Cindy’s daughter), and Justin Aaron Walker (Cindy’s son).
And, later in August, Nathaniel Walker, son of Justin Walker, grandson of Cindy Gabrys.
