Alice Victor KINCHELOE born 1Jan 1874 in Trimble Co., KY died 9 December 1937 in Henry Co., KY. She married Henry Robert GIVIDEN on 10 July 1895 in Sulphur, Henry Co., KY.

NAME: James Carl Romans
I am looking for information on John Thomas ROMANS and wife Amanda Catherine PETTY inTrimble County. Census records, tax records, and especially parents would be appreciated. I have reason to believe that John T. Romans, born in 1859, had parents named FORD and was taken in by a family named ROMANS and took their name. If I could find a FORD in the 1860 census named FORD that had a one year old child named John Thomas, it would possibly be a clue in this mystery. The youngest child of John and Amanda, Carl Frank Romans, was born in Erlanger, KY. in 1908, so they had moved by that time. Thank you for any assistance you may give.James Romans

NAME: Marie A. Dobranich Talbott
Zachariah TALBOTT and Absalom TALBOTT appear on the 1850 Census for
Trimble County, Kentucky enumerated on: 10 October 1850. Zachariah m. Elizabeth Jane HALL,
daughter of William HALL,on 14 Apr 1836 - Fayette County, Kentucky
Witness were: father: William Hall and Nancy TALBOTT.
QUESTION: Is Zachariah TALBOTT a nephew to Absalom TALBOTT and the
son of Nancy TALBOTT? Richard TALBOTT and Margaret Dowden of BARBOUR
CO., VA were the parents of 13 children...2 of which were:
I. Zachariah b: 1813 in Philippi, BAROUR CO., VA who married 3 times
1) Mary Ellison 2) Kaziah Ellison (sister) 3) Margaret J. Zinn.
II. Absalom b: 22 Sep 1807 in Philippi, Harrison CO., VA and married
1) Elizabeth Young on 5 Dec 1823 in Harrison CO., VA.
These two were the younger of the 13.
One of the eldest was a JACOB TALBOTT who married a NANCY McKinney in
1815....which is the birthyear of the Zachariah TALBOTT I am working on.
This Zachariah moved on to Lexington, Lafayette Co., MO. and had a
total of 9 children. His sons HARVEY TALBOTT (invalid most of his life -
or since birth) and BUTLER MOORE TALBOTT was born Nov 1855 in Kentucky,
mostlikely Trimble Co. I do not have this Zachariah's exact date of
death, because he was most likely a conscripted soldier during the Battle
of the Hemp Bales, which massive death made it necessary for mass
burials. I have obituaries on some of his children and wife.
Looking for Land records, marriages of his eldest, which may of stayed in
Trimble Co., KY and Death records on both of these Talbotts.
Have more info on Talbott Descendents.. Thank you for any assistance you
have give. I married a Talbott: Richard Arthur Talbott. Thank you,Marie Talbott
