Isaac Kemp to Talbot Williams deed – 1 Feb 1799 (Craven County)

by | Craven County Genealogy, Deeds, Grants and Patents | 1 comment

Talbot WILLIAMS shows up on a couple of Craven County census records in 1790 and 1800, then leaves a will before his death around 1820, but it seems as if he came from out of nowhere. [Update 5/9/2014 – I have learned that Talbott WILLIAMS and his wife, Nancy, were both born in Maryland. I’ve also found two assessments for Talbott WILLIAMS in Calvert County, Maryland in 1783, and then he shows up on a tax list in the Swift Creek area between Craven and Pitt Counties in North Carolina in 1786, so that means he must’ve moved sometime between 1783 and 1786 for North Carolina. Additionally, I have found a 14-year-old forum post on Genealogy.com that mentions a Talbott WILLIAMS of Maryland who married an Annie GARDNER, daughter of William GARDNER and Milcah CHANEY of Anne Arundel County, Maryland. I’m not sure if they’re one and the same, but I’m assuming they are considering the time of the marriage would be right — 1780 — and Talbott isn’t exactly the most common name in the world, not to mention, “Ann” can be a nickname for “Nancy.”]

    I was trying to identify where this property is. I think I’m close, but not sure. P.S. i think the first figure should be N. 65 E. (instead of N. 65 W.) Ed
