John has correctly identified Col Talbot.
I do not know where to find a bio. of the colonel, but for Livingston see:
Livingston, John C. Jr., Such a Foe as Livingston: The Campaign of Confederate Major Thomas R. Livingston’s First Missouri Cavalry Battalion of Southwest Missouri Wyandotte: Gregath Publishing Co., 2004.
Schrantz, Ward L., Jasper County, Missouri, in the Civil War Carthage: Carthage Kiwanis Club, 1992 reprint.
