John Tarver, son of Andrew Hipkin Tarver I went into Wilkes county, GA. arriving there by about 1787 as for as i can find.
I believe John Tarver was in Northampton county, NC as late as 1783 when involved in a transaction with John Low.His wife was an Elizabeth and they both are noted in Wilkes county, Ga. records, but not until about 1787.
John Tarver of Wilkes county, Ga. did have a son Andrew.The other brothers, Benjamin and Richard, both were large land owners and slave owners and migrated to Dallas county, Alabama as early as 1819 or so.It was Benjamin and Richard who were involved in a dispute with Samuel Bennett Tarver and his wife Charlotte over some slaves and whether Richard's will was valid in the 1820's in Dallas county, Ala.
There was an Andrew early about 1820 in Conecuh county, Alabama.But he could have been a son of Jacob Tarver, who also resided in Wilkes county, Ga and died there in 1822.Jacob also had a son Benjamin and a Jacob, Jr. and possibly Absalom.
It is a little odd that John Tarver, son of Andrew Hipkin I would name a son Andrew Hipkin III, but it could be.
There are records in Wilkes county, Ga., though, that mention John, Richard, Andrew, and Benjamin as being residents of Wilkes county as late as 1815 when John Tarver's new wife, an Elizabeth sued them over the ownership of a slave.John Tarver had died in Wilkes county, Ga and left his will there about 1810-1811.
Records reveal that Andrew Hipkin Tarver III was in Morgan county, Ga in 1810 as his daughter Catherine was born there then.
Now if he was residing in Wilkes county, Ga as late as1815 as the lawsuit indicates, the question becomes how could he be in Morgan county in 1810, unless he is moving back and forth between Wilkes and Morgan.
It could very well be, just need to flush it out.
It may have merit, but since John was a son of Andrew Hipkin Tarver I,it is a little confusing that John would name his son Andrew Hipkin III.What happened to Andrew Hipkin II?
Thanks for the response and maybe we can get it all resolved as we go through it.
