Re: Thomas Tarver
I am descended from BENJAMIN TARVER and his wife, HANNAH SMITH, who migrated from NC to Wilson Co, TN. According to the biography written by their youngest son, BENJAMIN, JR., the TARVER family were from Northampton Co., NC, and the SMITHS from across the line in Brunswick Co., VA. This source states that BEN Sr's father dead "about the Revolutionary War" and the care of the family devolved on BEN Sr.Also that he had a brother named JOHN TARVER who became a Methodist circuit rider.I think BENJAMIN was the son of SAMUEL TARVER.
I will be happy to share what I have.I will be happy to share what I have.Bob
