I sure hope that you are there so you can read this message. I am so sorry that I just now read your post concerning Elijah Tarter. I haven't looked at this site since my last post and just didn't think to check it. Elijah Tarter was the son of John Darter or Tarter, born July 22, 1783, and married to Christina Harkrader Feb. 17, 1806. The names go back to the same person/persons. In our line the most recent spellings have been Dotter, then Darter, then Tarter. If you do get then and need me to look up more information write again and you can also send to my email. I will try to be more timely.
