The mysterious Andrew Hipkin Tarvers--I, II, and III
would like to discuss with anyone interested the linking of Andrew Hipkin Tarver I to Andrew II and to Andrew III.
Logically, it would seen they would be father, son, and grandson, but it is difficult to follow as noted below:
Andrew Hipkin Tarver appears early in Northampton county, NC records about 1746 or so.Only identified as Andrew Hipkin once or so.Andrew Tarver left his will in Northampton count, NC undated but proved in 1780, naming his oldest son, John and referring to his 4 sons, of which 3 apparently were not of age at 1780.Thru association and subsequent records, these 3 sons appear to be Andrew (possibly Andrew Hipkin II), Benjamin, and Frederick, who left his will in Northampton county, NC in 1794.
Andrew (if Hipkin)II resided in Brunswick county(Meherrin parish), Va. from maybe 1785 or so or before, until about 1816 or so, when he relocated to Wilkes county, Ga then eventually into Hancock county, Ga where he died there in 1827.His son William M. was the executor and there is a will filed there.Other sons of this Andrew are Hartwell, and R.R. and maybe one other unknown to me at this time.
Andrew first married Ann Young in Greensville county, Va in 1785 and then Elizabeth Hartwell, a daughter of Paul Hartwell, in about 1791.
There is some traditional belief that Andrew II died in Troupe county, Ga about 1820.I cannot confirm this.I feel since there is a will filed in Hancock county, Ga showing that William M was the executor, it is fairly solid that Andrew actually died in Hancock in 1827.
Andrew Hipkin III did exist.Records show he was born in NC about 1781 or so.He went into Morgan County, Ga about 1810 and then on to Newton county, Ga, to Webster, and
Stewart county, Ga where he died about 1855 or so.
I am trying to link all three of these Andrew's and would like to discuss the merits as I have set forth here that they are father, son, and grandson.
Would be glad to discuss this any any of the other early Tarver families in and around the Northampton, NC area from about 1743 to around 1800.
