Re: another piece of the early Tarver puzzle
My husband's greatgrandmother on his mothers side was Claire Tarver born March 11, 1858 Jackson Parish, La. daughter of Rufus Tarver born 1820. Rufus's fathers was Andrew H. Tarver. I have him born April 27, 1780 in Wilkes Co. Ga. died 1855 in Webster Co. Ga. He left a will naming his wife Nancy Hal Draper and 2 sons Rufus and James. 4 daughters Eliza, Catherine, Ellen, and Salina. They did live in Morgan Co. Ga. and Newton Co. Ga. Rufus married Francis Henderson there which is Claire's mother. I have John Tarver and Elizabeth Jordan as parents of Andrew. I know there was a lot of mix up on this family. I hope I have the right family for Andrew H. Tarver born 1780. I have his father John Tarver's father Andrew born 1723 surry Co. Va. died 1780 Northampton Co. N.C. hope someone can clear up this family. I will be watching more post on this.
