I've searched the book by Ida Shirk, The Descendants of Jared Talbott, census records, marriage records, property records, obituaries, etc., etc., etc...and have come up with nothing to locate the parents of Ezra W. TALBOTT.The following is what we know for sure and I'm really hoping someone out there can add to it.
Ezra W. Talbott b. March 9, 1832 somewhere in Ohio (bible record and census) m. (1)Phebe L. FROSHA August 30, 1853 in Crawford Co., OH. She d. April 17, 1855 in Crawford Co. OH. They had 1 child, Francis E. TALBOTT b. April 1854.
Ezra m. (2) Susan KIMMELL on Sept 21, 1856 in Crawford Co., OH.By 1860 they are living in Ottawa, Putnam Co., OH.By 1870 they are in Napoleon, Henry Co., OH where they lived until at least 1905.Ezra was a dentist in Napoleon.He died Oct 22, 1908 in Toledo, Lucas Co., OH at the home of his daughter.His death record shows the dreaded "unknown" for parents.
Ezra first appears on the 1850 Federal Census of Crawford Co., OH., in the household of Jacob ROSE.Jacob ROSE was first married in 1824, Harrison Co., OH were there were known to descendants of Henry Hillary TALBOTT.Of those descendants Ralph and Edward went to Belmont Co. OH where, on the 1840 Federal Census Edward is shown with (among others) 2 male children age 5-10.By 1850 I find an Edward Talbott in Washington Co., OH but he only has 1 male child age 16 with him....Where did the other one go and could he be our elusive Ezra?Maybe I'm clutching at straws and way off base.ANY HELP would be appreciated!!!
