Joel Talton married Julia M Dukes in Clarke County, Alabama, on 17 February 1833. The marriage application showed that the name Joseph was crossed out and Joel was written in. [1]

Research Notes

Joel’s children reported he was born in North Carolina, Georgia and England. Joel, Julia and their four children were not found in the 1840 census, so they were likely living in another person’s household. Before the 1850 census Joel was deceased because his wife Julia Dukes Talton remarried in 1846.

This 1812 military enlistment for a Joel Talton is not proven to be for him. U.S. Army, Register of Enlistments, 1798-1914, Joel Talton,
