Hi, My grandfather was Sam Tarter son of Marion Tarter and Kate Cox. Marion Tarter was the son of Francis M. Tarter and Elizabeth Cundiff both believed to be from Faubush, KY. Francis was the son of Christian Tarter and Avis Davidson. Unfortunately that is all I know of my family. We have a Tarter/Garrett Family reunion every year around July 20th in Colorado City, TX where my grandfather and great grandfather are buried. My grandfather was from a large family. Great grandma Kate gave Great grandpa Tarter 6 children before he died of TB and then she remarried a Garrett and gave him 6 children. I have an Uncle named Kenneth Tarter but he has no children. So he will be that last of our line has the name Tarter goes anyways. I also have cousins names are Tracy and Stacy Tarter, Jay Tarter, Terry Tarter who will carry on the name.
