Source:Boone-1872@13: "TAGGART, from Washington av to Hilldale cemetry [sic], bt West End av and Irwin av"

Source:Hopkins-1872@2 shows Taggart Street running north from Washington Avenue (today California Avenue) to modern Nublock Street, then Union Street angling northwest from there to Strawberry Avenue (today Island Avenue/Izora Street). This was the northern boundary of Allegheny at the time. The road continued north (with tracks of the Pleasant Valley Railway).
