Re: NANCY TARVER? M POWELL SHELTON
Nancy (Clark) Tarver married Jim (James) Tarver who carried mail in Texas, probably north of Fayette County.Letters include wanting to move to Fayette.In December 1891 Nancy (Nan to family) died during a nightmare.She left a housefull of small children.Jim Tarver was lost from our records after this.
Stan CarpenterNan and James Alexander Clark were brother and sister, their parents were Manley and Diana Clark of Cumberland, Miss.Diana died when they were small, and they left home because they didn't like the new mother.I think that they lived near Viaden, Miss. or at least that was the h ome location when Jim Clark went to the Civil War.
