In 1835, James Talbot, accompanied by William Wheaton, arrived at Port Huron; and moved thence up Black River where Elder Beard was engaged in hewing down the pine forest. There also he became acquainted with the Brockways. After some time, he returned to his home on the Thames. There he married Miss Maria House, a descendant of the first Dutch settler of that name in New York State.
George Thompson...In 1886, Mr. Thompson was married at Port Huron to Clarissa J. Talbot, who was born at Port Huron, a daughter of James Talbot, who, with his wife Maria House Talbot, came from Canada to Michigan.
Maria is born in 1822, while James is her father, Tryphena cannot be her mother as Tryphena was born in 1811 and married James in 1828.
