The name was often spelled as Toliver due to many of the former slaves did not know how to spell Taliaferro and the pronunciation of the name is often Tol i ver. The name comes from descendants of Bartolomeo Taliaferro of Venezia, Italy. Many of the Taliaferro men in America had children by slave women that on on my family tree.
