The Chariton Leader, Chariton, Iowa Thursday, June 21, 1906
REV. SAMUEL A. TALBOTT, whose home is in Kansas, has been at the home of his daughter, MRS. JAMES WYLAND, for a few weeks past. REV. TALBOTT is one of the pioneer Methodist preachers of Lucas County and many of the older settlers of the east end, especially, often listened to his sermons more than forty years ago. He is now 81 years of age and is a native of Kentucky. Last week he left for Louisville to attend "The Kentucky Home Coming" and will visit a sister there who is two years his senior and whom he has not seen for fifty years. He is a man of unusual vigor at his age.
