John Tabor and Elizabeth Parker married 11/17 May 1785 in Richmond County, Georgia.John is probably the John Tabor listed in Richmond County on the 1790 Substitute Georgia Census and the John Tabor who made his will in Franklin County, Georgia in 1825.The will, probated in 1832, named John's wife, Elizabeth, and six children:William, John H., Isaac, Susannah, James, and Francis A. Tabor.The fact that Elizabeth was living when the will was made seems to contradict the notion that John also married Agness Justice and/or Dorcas Stovall, as seen in some reports.
John and Elizabeth's son, John H. Tabor, was born 1789 in Warren County, Georgia.He served in the War of 1812 and afterwards settled in Washington County, Tennessee.He married Alice Bayles/Bayless/Bayliss there in 1818.John H. was listed on the 1830 census in Monroe County, Tennessee and his son, Samuel, was born in Monroe County on 31 Jan 1831.The family moved to Madison County, Alabama between 1831 and 1834.Alice died and John married Alice Hannah/Hanner in 1856.Whether Hannah was her maiden name or her name from a previous marriage is not clear.She had two children with the last name of Hannah.John H. died in Madison County in 1881.The 1880 census shows that both of his parents were born in Georgia.
Another John Taber/Tabor married Ann Dorcas Stovall.He died before 1820 (est. 1818-1819).John and Dorcas had a son named John H. Tabor who was born in 1813 and lived in Mississippi in 1850.For more information, refer to the excellent work compiled on John Taber by Donna Merrill and Patsy Cooley:BARTON/THOMSPON and ALLIED FAMILIES http://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=dmerrillhttp://wc.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?db=dmerrill
Yet another John Tabor, reportedly born about 1763 in North Carolina, married Agness Justice on 16 Apr 1788 in Rutherford County, North Carolina.They, too, had a son named John who was born in 1803.
Bits and pieces of information regarding these three John Tabors have no doubt been mixed over time, ultimately distorting the true facts.
I would welcome any documentation that pertains to John and Elizabeth Tabor and I will be happy to share the information I have collected on their descendants.
