Recent info originates Thomas Talbot in County Kerry, Ireland.
Born abt 1831, left Ireland for States 1848+/-, possibly from Tralee. May have gone thru Canada, not sure. 1850 census has him living in Illinois with Richard & Mary Talbot & children. Relationship not known. Richard also from Tralee area & emigrated 1832. Thomas later married to Ellen Kerwin (born Canada). Any information greatly appreciated. Thank You.
