Biography / History
Harry Talbert, a native of England, ran away from home, eventually settling in Loudoun County, Virginia, where he married and reared a family of nine children. All these children came to Kentucky and established homes in Bourbon County, where Harry Talbert had purchased about 100 acres of land. The five sons and four daughters of Harry Talbert were Daniel, spouse of Lydia Whaley, Reason, George, Harry, Charles, Mary, spouse of Lee Whaley, Nancy, spouse of Daniel McShane, Katherine, and Katie, spouse of Lee Whaley.

A few letters concerned with family matters and finances are included.
