This church is built on land donated by Col. William Talbot, a son of Haile and Betsey. Slaves owned by William
constructed the church and presumably burned the clay for the bricked ca. 1844. As a young man William served in the
War of 1812 in Capt. Nathan Boone's Company of the Missouri Rangers. The Rangers patrolled the Missouri River
from St. Charles Mo to about the location of Jefferson City.
