I am looking for any information about the parents of my great
grandfather, William TALBOT. William was born about 1840-41 in
PORTAGE County, Ohio. William moved to Iowa when he was 14 years old
where he lived until he died in 1918. I believe that Willliam|s
father was born in Mass. I do not know his age when he arrived in
Ohio, nor am I sure of his first name. I believe that he came to
Ohio with his father who would have been William|s grandfather.
There are indications that William TALBOT|s father|s name might have
been Josiah or William. My great-grandfather William TABLOT|s mother
was either Harriett MORRIS d/o Marcus MORRIS and Annie of
Garrettsville, PORTAGE County, Ohio or Elizabeth MORRIS d/o William
MORRIS and Elvira PAINE (PAYNE). My limited information shows that
William TALBOT|s parents were married in PORTAGE, County, Ohio
(perhaps GARRETTSVILLE) in 1839. A letter written by my grandfather,
Nathan TALBOT, son of William TALBOT refers to his grandmother
Harriett as the daughter of Marcus MORRIS and Annie who were married
in Garrettsville Portland, County, Ohio in about 1839. I have other
information that indicates the father of William may have been a
Josiah TALBOT. I believe that there was a Josiah TALBOT in PORTAGE
County to fit these dates. Thank you in advance for any help in
finding out just who William|s parents were and any other relavent
inforamationl!? Ceelee1@aol.com Carolyn Talbot Hoagland, 830
