Caddo Parish, Bossier Parish, LA Tollivers/Tolivers/Taliaferros mid-late 1800s
(Everyone listed as Tolliver may have also spelled their name Toliver or have remained with Taliaferro/Taliafero, or Tagliaferro, which was probably the original spelling.)
I am searching for info on Isaac Taliaferro, later Tolliver, his ancestors and his descendants.Isaac was born between 1850 and 1853 in northern AL.His mother was Charity Rachel Foster.It is unclear whether his father was Valentine Tolliver or Jake (Jacob?) Foster.Isaac married Dicey Smith.They had at least 12 children whose names were:
Steven Tolliver (twin), born 187?, LA
Lemuel Tolliver (twin), born 187?, LA
Polly Ann Tolliver, born 1875, LA
Amelia Ann Tolliver, born 187?, LA
Sarah Tolliver, born 1878, LA
Samuel Tolliver, born 1880-1882, LA
Joseph Tolliver, born 1881, LA
Sylvia Tolliver, born 1880, LA
Charity Tolliver, born 1891, LA
Isaac Tolliver, Jr., born 1894, LA
Eliza Jane Tolliver, born 1895-1898, LA
Christopher “Kit” Tolliver, born 1899, LA
I think that some of their descendants may have settled in Harris County, TX and Caddo Parish, LA.
I do not know where or when Jake was born or about his parents.Charity was born before 1840 in AL.I do not know the names of her parents.I also don’t know if Charity or Jake had siblings.Unfortunately, I also don’t know if either had other children.
Valentine Tolliver was born in GA around 1796.He married Ellen Johnson.They settled in Bossier Parish, LA in the mid 1800s.They were the parents of 24 children!I don’t know if all of them were biological children.The only names that I have are:
Judy Ann Tolliver, born 1835-1850, AL
Wesley Tolliver, born 1855, AL
Mary Tolliver, born 1856, AL
The other 21 children (names, genders and dates unknown) were all born and deceased before 1900.
Judy Ann married Wash (Washington?) Jones.They lived in Bossier Parish, LA and had at least 6 children.
Wesley Tolliver married Amanda Hughley.They lived in Bossier Parish, LA and had at least 13 children.
Mary Tolliver married George Campbell.They lived in Bossier Parish, LA.They had at least 7 children.
Valentine Tolliver had at least 6 siblings.Their names were:
Stephen or Steven Tolliver, born 1817
Emmanuel Tolliver, born before 1835
Phoebe Tolliver, born before 1835
Frank Tolliver, born before 1835
Mary Tolliver, born before 1835
Pennie Tolliver, born before 1835
Some of them eventually settled in TX, possibly in Cherokee County, TX and Montgomery County, TX.
I would appreciate any information that you are able to share and will share what I have with you.
