      Eleanor Talbott, daughter of William and Elizabeth Talbott.

      The Talbott child born in 1780 was Eleanor. Found in Frederick County, Virginia is the marriage bond for Eleanor Talbott and Gilbreath Barton, 4 September 1798. Filed with the bond are two hand written notes: one from William Talbott, Eleanor’s father, and one from Hezekiah Young, the co-signer of the bond with Gilbreath Barton.

      The note from William Talbott reads: “If you must grant license to Gilbrith Barton and Eleanor Talbott and that shall be your indemnification against her father.” Signed Wm Talbott Dated 4 September 1798 To the Clerk of Frederick County.

      The second note is Hezekiah Young taking oath on the Holy scripture that he saw the William Talbott named within sign the Certificate and that he (Hezekiah Young) knows no reason why the intended marriage should not take place. Sworn before a Justice of the Peace on 4 September 1798 in Frederick County, Virginia.

      Gilbreath and Eleanor did marry. They left Virginia with the Barton family, lived near Knoxville Tennessee for awhile, and then settled in Marshall County, Alabama. Eight children were born to this union: Clark Talbot, Hannah, Eliza Jane, Margaret G., Mary M., William R., James Underhill, and John Garth. Eleanor is thought to have died about 1830 in Marshall County. Gilbreath married a second time to a woman named Jane (surname not proven). They had three children: Eleanor, Catherine, and Hugh. Gilbreath Barton’s estate was brought to probate in October 1839 in Marshall County, Alabama.

      The bond for the above marriage, including the notes, can be found at FamilySearch in Marriage Bonds 1773-1798, Frederick County, Virginia. The estate file for Gilbreath is also available at FamilySearch in the Marshall County, Alabama records.
