J. J. Tarlton, born ca. 1846 in Union County, NC; married Mallie ?. He was a Presbyterian minister and police judge of Benton. Served in the Civil War from Tennessee. He and Mallie had 3 sons who all died before 1917 and 2 daughters, Mrs. Fannie Evans of Benton (died between 1917 and 1923) and Mrs. U. S. Gaunt of Little Rock. Mallie Tarlton died 2/8/1917 in Benton and was buried in Mt. Olive Cemetery. Her obituary said that 6 grandchildren and 2 greatgrandchildren survived her also. J. J. Tarlton died in March, 1923 at his daughter's home in Little Rock. He was buried in Mt. Olive Cemetery. Any help on this family would be appreciated.
