Mary Maria Tracy Talbot

272b2b69-2e37-480b-aa16-860ee0cdf977The last couple of days I have posted about Mary Talbot’s death.  Most of the records I have for her were about her death.  But today I will tell what little I know about her life.

Mary Maria was the first child of John Edward and Maria Artlysia Boblett Tracy.  She was born August 10, 1857 in Ohio before the family moved west.  She married James Fuller Talbot in 1877 in York, Nebraska.  The story I heard was that she met James when the family lived in Illinois and he followed the family to York.  After they married James and Mary moved to Williamsburg, Iowa.  James was a farmer.  They had seven children: Annabelle (1878), Charles Fuller (1879), James Edward (1882), Walter George (1887), Clarence Earl (1892), Jennifer M (1894), and Esther G (1897). Mary died February 3, 1898.  We know from the letters posted previously that Mary had some sort of tumor.

The oldest girl, Annabelle died August 31, 1885 at seven and a half years old.

James remarried in 1907 to Caroline (Carrie) Schwartz Nelson.  He died in 1919 in Iowa.
