Four Invoices from the 1880s and 1890s to Allyn Kellogg Talcott & Phineas Talcott of Rockville, Connecticut

Four invoices from the 1880s and 1890s directed to the firm owned by brothers Allyn Kellogg Talcott and Phineas Talcott of Rockville, a village in the town of Vernon, Connecticut.

Allyn Kellogg Talcott (1839-1916) and Phineas Talcott (1845-1940) were the sons of Allyn Talcott (1800-1863) and Martha Goodrich (Robbins) Talcott (1808-1896).

The brothers' paternal grandparents were Deacon Phineas Talcott and Hannah (Kellogg) Talcott. The brother's maternal grandparents were Elisha Robbins and Sarah (Goodrich) Robbins.

Allyn Kellogg Talcott married Hannah Kingsbury, but I couldn't find a record of a marriage for Phineas.

Interestingly, the Talcott family papers are held at the William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan.

Allyn and Phineas operated a general merchandise store at 16 East Main Street.

The companies sending the invoices were:
  • W. K. Butler & Co. of Hartford, Connecticut - October 13, 1884
  • Foster & Company of Hartford, Connecticut - May 29, 1885
  • E. A. Buck & Company of Palmer, Massachusetts - May 4, 1893
  • Downing, Taylor & Company of Springfield, Massachusetts - April 13, 1897
