MORRIS, PAINE, PAYNE, TABLOT, TALBOT posted by Carolyn Talbot Hoagland on Tuesday, July 1, 1997

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!?
