Oops! Willis Palmer should have been posted in Palmer surname, but related to Joe and Mary Alice (Palmer) Tarlton of Maybank, Kaufman Co., Tx
I am also looking for descendants of Joe or Joseph and Mary Alice (Palmer) Tarlton.
The Tarltons moved from Chattahoochee or Muscogee Counties , GA around 1880 or 1890. to the Kaufman, Henderson, Navarro, and Ellis county connections. The children of Joe and Mary Alice were: Tom Tarlton, John Tarlton, Laura Tarlton, Emma Tarlton, Hugh Tarlton.
The spelling of the present Tarlton form was changed from another spelling prior to leaving GA. What that form was is unknown for sure.The story about the name change was furnished by one of the gggrand kids.
