He would talk to them about the first settlers who came to Navarro County, who they were and how they lived. When they returned home, Alva would record this information. He later compiled this information into a book. When Corsicana celebrated its centennial, Mr. Taylor was the official photographer. He later said that "I picked up several historical items and clippings and, in 1951, I put together several pages of information on 'Corsicana and Navarro County' which I published in 1952."...
