Jane was the daughter of engraver and Congregational minister Isaac Taylor, and sister of hymnist Ann Taylor Gilbert.
Her first verse was printed in the 1804 Minor’s Pocket Book. The secular world remembers her as the author of Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star.
If you know where to get a good picture of Taylor (head-and-shoulders, at least 200×300 pixels), would you send us an e-mail?
