Hi Kathy Not sure what success you have had in the following 7 years since you posted this, but I am researching the Talbot family too and know a little of your great grandfather's family. William Henry Talbot 1843-1912 was the son of William Henry Talbot b 1811 Dublin, Ireland, died Liverpool, England 1878 and Maria Harris 1803 Mount Sorrell - 1863 West Derby, England. W H Talbot's father was John Noble c 1772-1828 Ireland, as far as I can tell. Do contact me off list if you are interested in any more. I have a greatX3 grandmother Euphemia Talbot (1801 Ireland- 1867 Liverpool)and I think she is connected to your line, but haven't any proof yet.
