Old Talbot Cemetery
Bowie Co. Cemeteries of TX
Submitted by Nancy S. Austin
There is a man in New Boston, TX , Jack Talbot, who took me to this cemetery. Cemetery located in woods and across Holly Springs Branch for about one-fourth mile. Cemetery is enclosed in an old iron fence with two large oaks inside. Appears there were 6-8 graves here.I know that John Allen and Sarah Jane Lane Talbot moved to Boston, TX in the early 1840’s possibly from Lynchburg, Campbell County, Virginia. Now as to which of his children were born in Boston TX I do not know. But it would seem reasonable, I think, that is they were born after 1842 they were born there.
of John Allen and Sarah Jane Lane Talbot buried in Talbot Cemetery
***NOTE: Somewhere I think I learned that Fannie Taylor was Dr. John William’s second wife – his first wife died but as of this date I have not a clue as to who she was. But if this is true she is also buried in the same cemetery. Child of Dr. John William Talbot (my grandfather)
He is the son of Dr. John William but I don't think Fannie Taylor is his mother. Dr. Jack was named for his grandfather, John Allen Talbot. He was reared in Boston, TX completing school. Then went to college and on to dental school. He was the first Orthodontist in Arkansas. His practice took him from Fordyce (later he and my grandmother moved to Pine Bluff, Jefferson County, Ark) to Boston, TX . He would get on the train travel to Boston, TX on one trip then on his way back to his family he would make his weekly visits to the towns along the way. When he got home depended on how many patients he had scheduled and the problems encountered.
