Lucy Lelia Tarver
I am looking for information on Lucy Lelia Tarver, my great-great-grandmother.She married Joel Walter Roberts on 27 December 1865 in Falls County, Texas.All that we know so far about Lucy is that she was born in 1847 in Alabama and died in 1888 in Texas.Her last child (my great-grandmother) was born in January 1888 in Stranger, Falls County, Texas, so I am wondering if Lucy died while giving birth or from complcations thereof.
With regard to Lucy's parents, a marriage record dated 15 May 1841 shows James Tarver and Lucy Roberts being married in Macon County, Alabama.James Tarver was born in Alabama and Lucy Roberts was born about 1802 in Alabama.The 1860 census for Limestone County, Texas shows the following:
S. M. Jones, age 27, Stockmiser?, born GA
M. A. T. Jones, age 21, born MI (Lucy's older sister?)
Lucy Tarver, age 58, born GA
Lucy L. Tarver, age 12, born Ala.
Joseph Holeman, age 18, laborer, born MI
We are convinced this is the Lucy Lelia Tarver we are looking for, but we are not sure if Lucy Tarver is her mother or grandmother.Can anyone provide me with any information on this family and other members?Thanks so much!
