I have been unable to tie Franklin back to Baltimore, but if he was a direct heir, then his ancestors had to have been there at one time.
Here is the entire obit that I received:
Dr. F. Talbott who has resided for many years in this county, died at his late residence in the extreme northeast corner of this county. Dr. Talbott was born in Bethany, Brooks County, now West Virginia, on Dec. 16, 1814. He was baptized in his eighteenth year by Alexander Campbell. He was a deacon in the Christian church at Montecillo, MO for many years before the late war. He was a devoted husband and father, as well as a devoted Christian to the last. The doctor was a direct heir in the famous land suit recently begun in the city of baltimore, MD, in which millions of dollars are involved. A friend
According to Bible records, he married Caroline G. Dakin in September 1840. His grand daughter said that the family moved from Missouri to Texas during the Civil War. He couldn't leave with his family and had to join them later, because he would not take sides reguarding the war, and one side or the other, maybe both wanted him because he was a doctor.
