As usual, there is much confusion and "bogus" information, put on the Web about Jesse and his family. One person has cleared up much of the confusion about Talitha and Jesse with the input of Talitha having a bunch of kids out of wedlock. Although, I have not seen any of the proof to the nature of the children, it is clear that this occurred. The reason being is that Jesse died in 1848 in Mexico City, Mexico, during the War and all of the children found buried with Talitha, were born after his death. If anyone has GOOD info, as to the father of the out of wedlock children, it would be nice to know of it and have the record set straight.
