Generation No. 1
1. William1 Talbott, Sr. was born 1621 in England, and died about 1680 in Old Rappahannock Co. VA. He married Mary Sharp, daughter of John Sharp and Judith ?.
Notes for William Talbott, Sr.:
William is believed to have been transported on the sailing ship "Globe" to Virginia in Aug 1635.
He wrote his will, which is recorded in Old RappaHannock (VA) County Deeds and Wills, 6 Mar 1976/7 1677-1682, pages 99-102 (see "Talbotts Descendants of William Talbott . . .", compiled and edited by David Brian Donaldson).
Notes for Mary Sharp:
Mary was identified as the oldest daughter, when the father gave her a cow and calf, January 2, 1663.
The mark of Mary Sharp's cattle one crop in the right Eare & a slit in the Cropp & the left Eare slit down the middle Ann Sharpe her mark the right eare Cropp & two slits in the Cropp & the left Eare whole Judith Sharpe her mark the right Eare Cropp & one slit in the Cropp & the left eare whole.

Who was George Morris of New Kent County?
When William Talbott wrote his will on March 6, 1676, he bequeathed 200 acres to his son Thomas Talbott, land which “I had with: my Wife, by a Deed from her Father, John Sharp, deceased, only my Wife, Mary Talbott to have share in it for her life according to Law.” (ORCD&W 1677-1682, pp. 99-102).

Notes for Warren Adams Bacon:
From "Warren Adams Bacon . . ." by O. Clyde Donaldson.
The three oldest brothers, Edward Davis, Warren Adams and William Sherman, migrated to Kentucky about 1840. Warren Adams became a permanent resident, first as a teacher and later as a Bourbon County nurseryman.
A horse walked down a bluegrass country road in Bourbon County, Kentucky, a late April day in the year 1852. Astride were a 36-year-old man, and, arms around his waist, a 16-year-old girl. They were a schoolmaster and one of his pupils. But this was more than just a teacher-student relationship. They were eloping, according to the story told years later by a granddaughter. The man was Warren Adams Bacon, the girl Ariabelle Talbott, called "Belle."
Note: The granddaughter was Sallie Louise Hume Donaldson. This story conflicts with what was written by a cousin Edna Talbott Whitley: "(2) Ariabelle F. Talbott born at Pleasant Hill Plantation, April 6, 1836, and married in the great parlor there at 9:00 A.M., April 25, 1852 to Warren Adams Bacon I (1816-1902)." Because an exact time is given, I tend to believe this narrative that they were married in the parlor. The wedding should have been an article of interest in one of the Bourbon County newspapers at the time; most of which are available in the archives of the University of Kentucky at Lexington.
They were married April 25, 1852, by a William Rash. They had seven children, only three of whom were to have offspring of their own. The descendants were not very prolific, totaling 53, of whom 35--ranging over five generations from one grandchild (Warren A Bacon III) to four great, great, great, great grandchildren--were living in late l988.
The schoolmaster had migrated to Kentucky from near Utica, New York, some ten years before, to teach schools in Bourbon and adjoining Clark counties.
As was the custom in those days, the schoolmaster contracted with families for their children's education. A great granddaughter remembers being told that he was paid five cents per pupil per day. Not a small, but also not a large, sum in the early 1800s when a nickel was about the equivalent of a 1988 dollar. He apparently prospered, because among the family memorabilia is a receipt, signed by his mother and dated 25 April 1843, for $150 "for Reuben Davis and Samuel Davis", his mother's youngest brothers.
He probably was well educated. It is not known how well, but a couple of brothers are known to have attended college--one Harvard.
He came to the Kentucky bluegrass country from a stony farm on the hilly plateau above the Mohawk river valley in east-central New York state near the present-day, one-street village of Oppenheim, about 50 miles east of Utica.
The Bacon family, including five children, had moved to the farm from Greenfield, in northwestern Massachusetts, about 1820. The children's grandparents, Jonathan, Sr., a Revolutionary War veteran, and Mollie (Adams) Bacon, went along.
Warren was the second eldest son, and child, of Jonathan Bacon (V), an eighth-generation descendant of an Englishman who was one of the founding settlers in the 1640s of the Massachusetts Bay Colony town of Dedham, about 10 miles southwest of Boston harbor.
Jonathan Bacon (V) apparently failed at farming and became a stage coach driver and disappeared. Did he abandon the family, or did he die under mysterious circumstances? According to the family sketch, he “met a tragic death not many years” after settling in Oppenheim. But in a genealogy of the Davis family, it is said that “about 1830 he left his family and has not been heard from.” There is no known record of his death.
In 1838, about eight years after the father disappeared, Warren, then 22 years old, left for Kentucky. Warren, wasn't an abolitionist, for there is among the family memorabilia a note dated 22 August 1857 for the purchase of a “Negro girl slave named Mary aged about eighteen years” for $850.
Warren prospered after turning from teaching to farming. By 1880, he had become a railroad agent, and had established a nursery business. A third occupation also was listed in the 1880 census, but the notation was not legible.
By 1891, Warren had accumulated enough money to engage in some land speculation. That year, he invested $300 in the far-away Black Hills of South Dakota, buying six lots in a subdivision outside of Rapid City.
Warren died in 1902 survived by six children. An obituary noted that “he was a thorough businessman and has by thrift and industry accumulated a nice fortune.” The “fortune” was valued at about $4,000, and was divided among the four children--Otis, Clara, Warren Jr., and James--and two grandchildren, David and Sallie Louise Hume.
Warrens prosperity is well documented by the their home in Paris, KY - see Photo 07. A great grandson, Oscar Lewis Hume, stated to cousin David Brian Donaldson in 2000 that the Bacon's were the richest family in Bourbon County when he was a youngster..
