The first chart on this page shows the first 4 generations of Acadian Talbot descendants in Louisiana.
The parents and details of Nicolas Talbot and Marguerite Aubry are from research in France by Gerard Scavennec.  For more generations of descendants in pdf report format, click here.  A goal is to find pictures and identify all descendants of Louis Andre Talbot.  Details about living descendants will never be displayed here.  If you are a descendant of Louis Andre Talbot, please let us know the path, click on contact us.  Contact will be mutually beneficial.
The second chart shows the Douville ancestors of the Talbot family.  The Douville were also the ancestors of the celebrated actor, Charles Coburn.  The early Douville data were also provided by Gerard Scavennec.
The third chart shows the ancestors of Rosalie Dugas, the matriarch in Louisiana of all Acadian Talbots.
The next charts show Louis Andre Talbot and an 8 generations overview of Louisiana Talbot ancestors.
Those two charts include new, Feb 2010, data by Gerard Scavennec from Archives Dept. de la Meuse. 
After decades of uncertainty on the origin of the Acadian Talbot surname (Normandie?, Paris?, Lorraine?),
Mr. Scavennec has solved the mystery.  Louis Charles Talbot and 3 generations of his known ancestors 
lived in Maulan, Lingy-en-Barrois, Lorraine. Lorraine was still in the Holy Roman Empire when Louis Charles       A Talbot Hunting Dog
Talbot emmigrated to Ile St.Jean, Acadie, ca.1732.  Lorraine became a part of France in 1766.  See map at        as pictured in heraldry,
the bottom of this page.  Maulan is now in the La Meuse.  There are still Talbot cousins living there.     extinct ancestor of Mastiffs.
                                                                                                                                                             Origin of the dog is very ancient.
Much of the research linking our Louisiana Talbot family to the Acadian Ile St,Jean Talbot family was
conducted by Konrad Talbot of Baton Rouge, Eileen Talbot Bosworth of New Orleans and Raymond
Thomas Talbot of Franklin, LA around 30 years ago..
Note: There are also a small number of unrelated, non-Acadian Talbot families in Louisiana. 
Near the end of this page are scanned signatures of ancestors, Louis Andre Talbot, Marie Louise Talbot, Andre
Lafitte, Louis Charles Talbot, Gabriel Roge and marques of Marie Francoise Douville and Rosalie Dugas.
A good article on the history of the Louisiana Talbot family and other families can be found on the web-site:

A personal plea:  My Dad, Douglas Lewis Talbot, had 2 children that I know nothing about.  His other children that I do know are Brenda, Jon, Patricia, Jimmy and Douglas Jr.  Dad was born 2 Dec 1915 in Franklin, Louisiana, served in the Army Tank Corps in the Pacific Theater during WWII and the occupation of Japan until 1947. Afterwards, he is known to have resided in Chicago, New Orleans, Franklin, LA and the Hahnville-Luling, LA area.  He is buried in the family plot in Franklin, LA.  If you have any information or clues to the identity of my two long lost siblings, please contact me.  I would dearly love know about them.  They would have been born somehere around 1943 to 1975.  At right is Dad's picture ca.1944, He was 5 ft.6 in.tall, with black wavy hair, dark blue eyes. 
Thank you.
