               My   TALBOTT  ANCESTORS
        with    some  of  their  documentation

BENJAMIN TALBOTT b.  15 June 1811 in  Bourbon Co., KY
Benjamin Talbott was b. 15 June 1811 in Bourbon Co., KY, s/o Daniel Talbott and Elizabeth "Betsy" Paris.  Benjamin appears in Franklin Co., IL and was in the Indian War there as was Anderson Farris, believed to be related to Benjamin's wife, Laura Farris.  It is certain that she was related - probably a sister - to Lucian Farris of Reynolds Co., MO.  Benjamin married Laura Farris b. 12 Feb 1818, d. 16 Apr 1879.  It is unknown where they married but probably in Illinois as their first child, James Carter Talbott was born in Coles Co., IL.  They moved to Washington Co., MO by 1840 as they are there in the 1840 census.  Benjamin was also a 2nd Lt. in the Mexican War and a Capt. in the Civil War.  He killed a man at a circus, according to the History of the county and was jailed.  This would have been at the time of the Civil War as he excaped from jail (according to a letter - with a little help from his friends) and was killed by bushwhackers at his home.  I find Benjamin to be one of the most interesting characters in my ancestry and have given talks about him to genealogical societies as I have so much documentation and believe I know more about him than his wife probably did.  Probably a good thing she didn't know as much.  

Their children were:

***1. James Carter Talbott b. 25 Feb 1833 Coles Co., IL (my great grandfather - more
      about him later)
2.    William Hazlet Talbott b. 7 Mar 1835 MO, d. 12 Mar 1863.   He m. 19 Aug 1855  
      Franklin Co., MO to Cathrine Dorinen. He was in the Civil War and according to
      Confederate records, he died March 12, 1863 at Camp near  Little Rock. He served as
      Capt. in Co. D 12 Regt MO - White's Regt.  He had enlisted in Carter Co., MO on 29
      July 1862 and on another confederate record shows he enlisted 21 Aug 1862 in Oregon
      Co., MO.  I have no record  of his family.
3.    Sarah L. Talbott b. 6 Dec 1849 MO, d. 26 Nov 1885; m. 15 June 1868 Jefferson Co.,
      MO to Allen Delcour.  It  appears that her name may have been shown as Sarah
4.    Amanda Talbott b. 16 Apr 1856 MO, d. 4 Aug 1917 in Carterville, Jasper Co., MO 
      (this is where my grandparents  were married in 1897 and where Amanda's 
      brother,James C. Talbott was living when he died in 1922); Amanda
      m. ____ Jones
5.    Laura A. Talbott b. ca. 1838 MO, d. after 1880;  m. Levi Gibson.  1860 St. Francois
      Co., MO (next door to her sister and her mother closeby on this same census.   1880
      Dent Co., MO 1880
6.    Juliet/Julia N. Talbott b. ca. 1840 MO, d. 5 Mar 1907 MO; m. 3 Feb 1859 Washington
      Co., MO to John B. Ross. She is shown as Julia N. and Julia Ann.  They apear in the
      1880 and 1900 Washington Co., MO census
7.    Mary Elizabeth Talbott b. 27 Aug 1842 MO, d. 3 May 1888; m.16 Aug 1859 St. Francois
      Co., MO to David V. Gibson (probably a brother to Levi Gibson who maried Mary's
      sister, Laura A. Talbott).  Mary and David Gibson are found on the 1860 and 1870
      St. Francois Co., MO Census
8.    Hiram P. (middle name probably Paris) Talbott b. ca. 1844-5 MO; m. Prudence Leeper
      as her second husband. I believe Paris is his middle name as his grandfather,
      Daniel  Talbott, was a guardian of Hiram Paris (found as Hiram Parish is KY court
      records), probably Betsy Paris' nephew when her brother, Moses Paris, died.  Hiram 
      also served in the Civil war as a Private in Co. D, Missouri Infantry as a 
      Confederate - in the  same unit as his brothers, William H. Talbott and James C. who
      also served as a  Private.  Hiram got involved with a murder when his brother, James
      C. Talbott (my great grandfather), was  stabbed in 1870.  Thinking James C. had been
      killed, friends found Hiram and told  him that hisbrother had been killed.  Hiram 
      was handed a gun (according to newspaper accounts - found in this blog) and rode
      into town and killed  the man who stabbed his brother.  Hiram then  rode out of town
      and was later arrested, found guilty of 2nd degree murder and  sentenced to three 
      years in the penitentiary but was pardoned by the governor.  I  have the newspaper
      account and the penitentiary records.  Hiram and his wife,  Prudence are found on 
      the 1900 Crawford Co., MO Census.  Hiram had liver cancer and had been treated for 
      it by his brother-in-law Columbus Missey.  Hiram died about  1912 and his wife moved
      to Oregon with her children where she died.
      Hiram had two sons:
      1.    Clarence Talbott b. June 1875 MO
      2.    Pierce Talbott b. Jan 1884 Texas
9.    Cynthia N. Talbott b. 3 Apr 1848 Washington Co., MO, d. 28 Mar 1896 Vilander,
      Crawford Co., MO; m.Columbus F. Missey.  They are both buried at Harrison Cemetery.
      Columbus F. Missey's son, Albert Paris Missey kept a journal and some of the
      information came from this source.
10.   Kennett Talbott b. ca. 1852 MO
11.   Emma Talbott b. ca. 1853-4 MO; m. John A. Wright.  One of their children is named
      Albertine so it is possible that the next child was, indeed, Albertine - not
      Albert.    They appear on the 1880 Washington Co., MO Census.  I have a picture of
      their daughter, Hattie (taken in Chicago), which was in my grandmother's 
12.   Albert/Albertine Talbott b. 1858-59 MO.  This child has been shown as a female in
      1860 St. Francois Co., MO census and as a male in the 1870 Washington Co., MO
13.   Benjamin C. Talbott b. ca. 1852 MO
14.   Marie Talbott b. 1 Aug 1838.

*** My direct lineage

JAMES CARTER TALBOTT b. 25 Feb 1833 Coles Co., IL

This picture is of James Carter Talbott and, I believe, the writing on the back was written (in part) by him. 
The date of death and the date picture taken appears to be in the handwriting of my uncle, Everson Talbot "Tab" Simonson.  It appears to me that James Carter Talbott is not 72 years of age in this picture.  I have other pictures that are of him at an older age. 

I am soooo anxious to hear from others who descend through J. C. Carter.  He is the father of my grandmother, Ella Talbott who married my grandfather, Jesse Russell Simonson.

  James Carter Talbott was b. 25 Feb 1833 Coles Co., IL, 
  d. 6 Jan 1939 Carterville, Jasper Co., MO.   James C.
  "Jim" Talbott was the first child of Benjamin Talbott and
  Laura Farris.   I don't know how the "Carter" name fits 
  into the family at this point nor why his mother (she was
  the only one really necessary to be there at the time of
  his birth) was in Coles Co., IL.  As far as I know, his
  mother was born in Illinois, but I do not know where.    
  James C. Talbott was in the Civil War and served with   
  his brothers, William H. and Hiram P., for the 
  Confederacy.  One of his nieces said that James Carter 
  Talbott was a man who carried a Bible in one pocket and 
  a flask of whiskey in the other and loved to argue the 
  bible.  I am very very fortunate to have many letters 
  that James C. Talbott wrote to his youngest daughter, my 
  grandmother.  He was a very loving and caring father.  I 
  may later add these letters to another page designated 
  just for that purpose.  Let me know if any are   
  interested in this endeavor.  One of these letters was 
  written by Hiram T. Talbott on the day his father, James 
  C. Talbott, died and was written to his sister, Ella 
  Talbott, my grandmother.  James Carter Talbott was also 
  a Justice of the Peace and performed many marriages and 
  among them were for some of his own relatives.  James C. Talbott pictured in his Confederate uniform with his son, Washington Valentine Talbott as a child.

          Sarah Jane Cain.  I have the original of these pictures and the one of Sarah
          Jane Cain is VERY large and I had a picture made of it for this purpose.  I
          think James Carter Talbott is very good looking and I have pictures of him as
          he gets older, too.  The amount of material I have on this family is amazing to
          me.  I think I was meant to have it as I am a sharer. God works in wondrous 
          ways - even in genealogy.

Goade b. 25 May 1884, d. 1 Mar 1903.  I'm not sure if this was a child of Ollie's by a previous marriage or who she is.  In addition to Ollie M. Goade are others in the James Talbott Family Record who are related to the family.

Washington County, Missouri
Washington County Journal - Potosi, Thursday, July 21, 1870

A DOUBLE TRAGEDY -- One man seriously cut, and another killed!
    A horrible tragedy transpired at Coleman's Store, Liberty township, in this county, on Saturday last, resulting in the infliction of seven serious knife wounds upon one party, and the instantaneous killing, by a pistol shot, of another.
    During Saturday afternoon a considerable crowd had assembled in the vicinity of Mr. Firmin Coleman's store, to participate in a shooting match. At about three o'clock, according to our information, many of the party having become Intoxicated and boisterous, Jasper Vandever - a young man who had not heretofore borne a good character, -- made an assault (which we are assured was entirely unprovoked) upon the person of James Talbott, who had been engaged in the match.
    That part of the affair not having been up to the present time made the subject of legal Investigation, we are unable to give the details. In the course of the difficulty, however, Vandever inflicted upon Talbott seven severe stabs with a large, ugly looking pocket knife.
    The Injured man was placed on the porch of Mr. Coleman's store In a bleeding, fainting condition, and medical aid summoned. A little later In the afternoon Hiram Talbott, a younger brother of the victim of the first affray, returned to the neighborhood from a visit to the residence of his sister, on Black river. At the store of Mr. A. L. Edwards, about two miles from the scene of bloodshed he was first Informed of the affair, by a bystander. A young acquaintance, Marion Walser, according to the evidence adduced, then proposed to Hiram Talbott to go to the place where his brother was supposed to be lying in a dying condition, and kill Vandever.
    The two rode off together to Coleman's store, one of them borrowing a pistol on the way and Walser carrying It, arrived upon the spot and in the immediate presence of the wounded man, another scene of blood was quickly enacted. Just after dismounting, Walser drew forth the pistol and handed it to young Talbott. Vandever was advancing upon the porch at the moment -It is stated by some with a show to attack another man who had In some way offended him. As young Talbott saw him advancing, he accosted him with a peremptory challenge, to which, however, Vandever did not seem to heed, at all. With his first attempt Talbott did not discharge his pistol - It snapping; Instantly re-cocking It he fired, and with but too deadly aim. With the report Vandever fell forward upon his face, and with a gasp or two expired.
    Talbott, seeing the fearful result of his passion, threw down his pistol, mounted his horse, and hurriedly rode away. Walser followed soon after, and before the authorities could be apprised of the fact the two made good their escape under cover of night. A subsequent examination of the body of Vandever discovered that the pistol ball had entered the right side, and passing through is heart, come out upon the left. The weapon used was a clumsy, single-barreled pistol, made from the breech of a common rifle barrel, very plainly mounted and about 44 caliber. In Vandevere's pocket was found the knife with which he cut Talbott, and projecting from his boot leg an Iron poker, both of which, together with the pistol, are now in the possession of Sheriff Breckenridge. Beside the stabs received by James Talbott, in his encounter with Vandever, the latter bruised him severely In the breast by repeated blows with a rock. He has, however, so far recovered from his injuries as to have been removed to his home, and is now reported In a fair way for recovery.
    Of the slain and his slayer, it is but just for us to repeat in this connection what we have heard Iterated and reiterated by their neighbors; that while Vandever was a vicious, dangerous man, especially under the Influence of Intoxicating liquors, as was very frequently the case, Talbott has been known as a peaceable and strictly temperate young man, easily Influenced, and of a very impulsive temperament.
