Cindy Tallent Barnes

Descendants of Solomon Tallent and Caroline Louise Bailey by SANDRA Tallant SCHLICHT
SOLOMON Tallent was born ca. 1828 in North Carolina. He could have been a son of the Daniel Tallant who appeared on the 1820 Anson County, NC. census, as there are some Anson County land transactions between them in the mid 1850's, just about the time Solomon and Caroline moved from NC. to Mississippi. Solomon first appeared on the 1850 Anson County, NC. census with his wife Caroline and four children. An Elizabeth COVINGTON, age fifty, Nancy COVINGTON, age thirty, and Benjamin COVINGTON, age twenty-two, are also living in their household. All of these people were born in NC. The relationship between the Covingtons and Solomon and his family is not known by this researcher at this time. Solomon and Caroline must have married at a very young age, as they are only twenty-one and twenty-three, respectively, in 1850, and their oldest child is five years of age at this time. On Mar. 28, 1855, Solomon and Caroline sold land on Gould's Fork Creek in Anson County, NC. to James SEAGO and on Sept. 8, 1855, Solomon and Caroline sold land adjoining that of John Smith in Anson County to Daniel Tallant. This is about the time they moved to Calhoun County, MS. They appear on the 1860 Calhoun County, MS census with eight children. Solomon served as a Confederate soldier during the Civil War as a private in Companies H and D, 31st Mississippi Infantry. This researcher was unable to locate
Solomon and his family on the 1870 census, but they do appear on the 1880 Calhoun County, MS. census. Four of their children are living in their household at this time. Living just next door to them are Thomas BAILEY, age seventy-five, and his wife Sarah, age seventy-four, both
having been born in North Carolina. They are likely the parents of Caroline BAILEY Tallent. Solomon's occupation was farming. Family members believe that he died ca. 1895, in Mississippi, probably in Calhoun County. Caroline died sometime after 1880 but before 1895, and family members say that Solomon then married Hattie SNYDER, who was born Dec. 1842 in Tennessee. Hattie appears on the 1900 Calhoun County census in the household of her son-in-law/stepson, Henry Solomon Tallent and his wife and Hattie's daughter, Captobia "Cappie" SNYDER Tallent. The exact death dates and burial place of Solomon and his wives are unknown by this researcher. Solomon and Caroline were the parents of ten known children.
