The Week 33 WikiTree Challenge team came across a mix-up of Langley Talbots, which affected our guest's (Lisa Talbot Lisson) ancestor John B. Talbot. Below is information to help sort them out.

I think that John B Talbot-404's father is Langley Talbot-4856, not Langley Talbot-309 The reason is, Lisa's John B Talbot, who is definitely her ancestor, spent his whole life in Halifax VA, as did Langley Talbot-4856. Langley Talbot-309 spent his entire life in Campbell VA. These counties are next to each other, but had no changes at that boundary during the relevant time period.

Research Notes

  • The reason I noticed this is that I'm trying to research the enslaved people held by David Gwin Talbott. Knowing who his children are is essential. Weatherall-96 20:35, 25 August 2021 (UTC)
