I think we both misunderstood.It is so difficult to sort out the various Andrews.I apologize for not following your information closely enough.
First of all, let me say that my assumption, as given in my previous Message, was that the Andrew Tarver who died in 1827 in Hancock Co., GA was actually the one you refer to as Andrew Hipkin Tarver II (not his son) and that he had 4 wives, with children by three of them.
I now see that you are saying that the Andrew Tarver who died in Hancock County in 1827 was probably the son of John Tarver and Elizabeth (Jordan?) and a nephew of Andrew Hipkin Tarver II.Andrew Tarver's 1827 Hancock Co., GA will proves, especially when added to other information, that he had at least 2 wives:the mother of his daughter, Nancy Tarver Allen (b. ca 1786 VA) and Mrs. Nancy Singleton Holt Colquitt (almost as young as his daughter) whom he married in 1823, and that he was the father of William M. Tarver.Am I correct in thinking that this is the same "Brunswick county, Va. Andrew" who was the father of, as you stated, "Hartwell, R.R., Wm M., Benjamin, possibly Robert and Andrew" in your previous Message?If so, he had at least 3 wives, the 2nd one being Elizabeth Hartwell, mother of H. H., etc.
I know that I'm giving much information that you already know and have already posted.I'm just trying to get it straight.Corrections appreciated.
You mentioned the following, which I found today at Digital Library of Georgia in "Georgia Journal" (Milledgeville,GA) in the January 31, 1816 issue, page 3.I couldn't find it using the Search function, so had to use the name of the newspaper and the date as given in the abstract found in MARRIAGES AND OBITUARIES FROM EARLY GEORGIA NEWSPAPERS, by Huxford.In the newspaper, the badly faded notice is very near the top of the 2nd column from the left and it reads:
Died in Philadelphia on the 31st of December last, Mr. ANDREW TARVER, student of Medicine in the University of Pennsylvania.Mr. Tarver was a young gentleman of fine talents and the most amiable character.His candor, sobriety and gentleness of manners, had secured him the confidence and esteem of a respectable and extensive acquaintance in Georgia, & in Philadelphia his worth was known to many.His extraordinary application to study and great capacity of mind, were flattering presages that he would soon become one of the most useful members of society.
