I am new to genealogy, and have just discovered your submissions to GenForum from 2000. They are quite enlightening. I have tentatively established the connections between Elnathan Tarte and my branch of the family and could supply that to anyone interested. Thanks to you, I can add Eleazer as his brother.
In searching for Elnathan’s point of origin, I have been led to Shropshire, UK where there are still Tarts present. Hopefully one of them will have an interest in genealogy which will prove beneficial.
Do you have any information on the ship which brought them to VA?
