Susan, et.al. At this juncture I am not sure of any thing.I am not even sure the L. in Robert's name stood for Lincoln.I am going on what LDS, Genforum, and various other genealogy sites has provided thus far.You and several other have been most helpful and I appreciate it. All I know for sure or feel reasonablity sure I am the last male that will carry the Tarter name.I have no sons.So I am trying to "wrap this up" before I am gone. Discouraged but I am a stubborn Tarter which I am discovering goes with the Gene pool. I was told by the local library that Hertiagequest.com is going to place online every census available for the US in the near future.Sure hope So!
