eliabeth tarter and her siblings are listed in my bible as are some of their children.they have one grandchildlisted born in 1901,lesley roberts-who is the brother of my grandmother(my fathers mother).on the top inside of the bible it is written this book belongs to john L logan. i believe that this book may have been owned by silas tarters brother in law at one time.silas was married to americus(america)ann logan.her brothers name was john lincoln logan.
