bullet  General Notes:

These are my memories of my grandfather Lewis Elsworth Talbott. By David Lee Talbot Sr. on August 8, 2002 his grandson. I was only 11 when he died so my recollections of him are vivid but limited. He lived about 200 yards away from the West Gate of Mount Vernon, George Washington's home in Fairfax county Virginia on Old Mill road. This is also where I lived from about 1959 to1964. My father Robert Lee Talbot Sr. acquired the property from him, the circumstances of I do not know. It is my understanding that all of Lewis's children were raised on this land from1917 until they moved on with families of their own. This house that we lived in at the time, as my father was building another beside it was the house they were raised in. It had running cold water to the sink in the kitchen only and every so often we would have to take the drain bucket from under the sink and thro the gray water out in the yard. It had no bathroom so we used the outhouse or bedpans at night. This was properly one of the great times in my life. My grandfather was about 6 foot or so and about 180 pounds with a weathered look about him. I do not know how he interrelated with others but with me he was kind and genital. After our house was build they tore down the old house and put it down the well and sealed it. My uncle George, my father and others build Lewis a two-room house out back on the far end of the property and there he lived for a while before having to go to a nursing home were he died. While living in the house out back I use to stay with him a lot and watch TV with him. He loved to watch wrestling anytime it was on. I have been told that he was a fisherman in his younger days. This may be true because he use to take me dip netting for Herring in Dogue Run stream. This was a stream that ran thru George Washington's Gristmill, that he help restore earlier in life. My job was to go upstream and walk in the water running the fish down stream into the nets. I cannot count how many times I did this. He use to dip hundreds a day from the stream after which he would clean them, smoke them and then put them up. I do know that he liked the fruit of the vine. It is my under standing that he had a stroke and that is why he went to the nursing home and soon after died. I remember the day because coming home from school there was a lot of commotion at the time. After that I remember nothing. On the property itself was1 Black Cherry tree, 2 Apple trees, 1 Plum tree, 2 Holly trees (1 male and 1 female) 1 Maple and 4 giant Oaks. The well on the property prior to being filled in according to the people around had the coldest and purest water in the area and workers from all around would come and fill their containers. I got one of my worse spankings for spitting in the well one day. After the old house was torn down it was found to have and underground stream running thru it about 3 or 4 feet below ground. Also on the land were chicken coups and sheds for the fish he smoked and the outhouse. Out back also there was a garden that used to be used in earlier days but turned in to a baseball field, as I got older. Also there was a big hole out back that at one time was used for cold storage of food during the winter and summer for things that were grown. The land around the house was nothing but woods and swamps. Prior to us leaving and moving to Woodbridge Virginia in Prince William county most of the woods were gone and replaces by big homes.
