[Bourbon County] [Ruddel's Mills Precinct]

JOHN T. TALBOTT, farmer, P. O. Cynthiana, the name of Talbott is perhaps
as familiar to the citizens of Bourbon County as that of the posterity
of any of the old pioneers. A tracement of the genealogy of the ancestors
of John F., being found in the biography of Chas. Talbott, this sketch is
confined more particularly to the former. Reason Talbott married Miss Jane
Whaley, who was born in the old fort at Maysville, her people being
formerly from Loudoun County, Va.; he died in the spring of 1862, and his
wife in 1870; they reared a family of four children: Benjamin, Nancy,
Emily, and Henry H., the latter being the father of our subject; he was
reared to farming and married Miss Angelina, daughter of Lee and Mary
Whaley; he died March 5, 1878, and she about the year 1860; there were
born to them three children: John T., Charles L. and Mary C., now wife of
F. M. Myers of Bourbon County. John T. was born in the precinct, where
he now lives, May 17, 1866; he married Miss Lucinda Collins, daughter of
B. F. and Sally (Turney) Collins, of Bourbon County. The ancestors of
Mr. Talbott have been an agricultural people, his early life having been
spent on his father's farm; he also has engaged in the same business.
The Talbott is an extensive family in the county, and John T. is a worthy
representative of so hardy a pioneer as Henry Talbott.
