JOHN P. TALBOTT, physician; P. O. Hutchinson; the grandfather of our
subject, Acquila Talbott, came to Kentucky at an early day, and located
in Paris, where he carried on carpentering and building, during which
time he built the court house there, the cupola of which was a piece of
architecture greatly admired, even by foreigners. His son, August
Talbott, was born in Paris, and has been a farmer all his life. He at
present resides in Franklin County. The mother of Dr. Talbott, and
wife of August, was Fanny Pryor, daughter of Dr. John Pryor, of this
county. Our subject was born June 8, 1836, in Bourbon County, where he
received his early education; he attended Transylvania University, where
he took a course in medicine, graduating from that institution in 1858.
He spent a year additional at Jefferson Medical College, Philadelphia,
after which he began practice at Blue Licks, Nicholas County, where he
remained until the war, when he entered the Confederate service as
Surgeon of the First Kentucky Mounted Rifleman, and remained four years,
returning at the close of the war he located at Hutchinson where he has
a fine practice, and is highly respected.
