Hi Donna. I was wondering if you had any sources for John Talbott's death date. Also do you have any sources confirming that John is the father of Joseph Talbot. Many thanks

Hi Profile managers. The merge of Talbott-513 and Talbott-452 is default approved. The two profiles share the same parents. Is there any evidence that there was another son Joseph b 1706, son of John Talbott and Sarah (Mears) Allnutt, as that child will become part of this family following the merge. Many thanks. Gillian
