Ancestry of Mary (Talbott) Fling

Ancestry of Mary (Talbott) Fling

I am trying to confirm the ancestors of my wife’s gr-gr-grandmother Mary J. Talbott. Mary was born 12 Jun 1842, Philippi, Barbour County Virginia. She married Henry Henson Squires Fling on 6 November 1864, Barbour County, West Virginia.

I have found, in both Volume II of “West Virginia History” and “The History of Barbour County, West Virginia” that Robert and Mary (Woodford) Talbott had a daughter named Mary Talbott. According to the 1850 census Barbour County for Robert and Mary Talbott their daughter Mary (age 8) appears to be the right age for Mary Talbott, wife of Henry Fling.

Where I am confused is that sometime ago another Fling researcher, now deceased, wrote that while Mary Talbott’s gr-grandfather William Woodford I was a Revolutionary War soldier he was a private. If Mary J. (Talbott) Fling was the daughter of Robert and Mary (Woodford) Talbott and Volume II of “West Virginia History” and “The History of Barbour County, West Virginia” are correct then it would appear that Mary Talbott’s gr-grandfather, William Woodford I, was a General and not a private?

I would appreciate any assistance in helping me better understand the ancestry of our Mary (Talbott) Woodford.
