      Page 37-38: These two pages transcribe what is found in the family Bible of William’s parents, Daniel and Elizabeth Talbott. Author states that some researchers said Elizabeth was a Magruder. The author found nothing to confirm or deny it.
      The following pertains to their son William and his family.

      Thomas Talbott son of Wm. Talbott and Elizabeth his Wife was born August ye 9th 1783

In July in the Chancery records, William is reported as deceased.)

      Page 52-53: The record of his children's births (William and Elizabeth’s children) in his parents’ bible is so mutilated that the names of but two of the eight (third and eighth) are shown. But we learn the years of birth of all but the first two; that the fourth and fifth were sons, and infer, from a marginal note, that the fourth, fifth and seventh were living in 1824. The names of six of the children, without dates, has been given by a descendant.
