Thanks for the great detail.
I have been studying the Tabitha Tarver and James Garrett connection and would like to add a little here now and expound on it maybe a little later:
1) My support for Andrew H. Tarver in Morgan county Ga. --
His daughter, Catherine Tarver b. 3-27-1810 in Morgan county and married there in 1826 to Thomas Dee Garrett.Thomas Dee Garrett was b. in Morgan county, October 2, 1808.They were married in Morgan county, Ga December 21, 1826.
2) Another Tarver, Benjamin J. Tarver, the Methodist minister and brother to Hartwell Hill Tarver was in Morgan county, Ga in at least by the mid to late 1820's;
I found a marriage of Mrs. Olivia Jordon to B.I.(which was j.) Tarver on May 22, 1827 in Morgan county, Ga.Olivia Tarver is on the 1830 Morgan county, Ga. census 2F and 33 or so slaves.
R.R. Tarver, another brother of Hartwell Hill Tarver applied for letters of administration on the estate of Benjamin J. Tarver, late of Morgan county, Ga. --Notice in Southern Recorder, Milledgeville, Ga., 8-5-1829
Benjamin J. Tarver had sold of lots 327, 328, 326,318,and 352 each for 202 and 1/2 acres January 28, 1828 to J.W. Langford both of Morgan county, Ga for 1200 and
a few more lots in the 4th District Morgan county, Ga Jan 12, 1828 for 700 to Jesse Gunn, Sr.
And then, Olivia T.Jordan (from above) Tarver negotiated a marriage contract with Merritt W. Warren, July 20, 1830 and was eventually married to him within the year.She had a considerable estate and must have obtained part of it with Benjamin J. Tarver while married only to him for less than 3 years or so.Somehow, I think Olivia Jordan Tarver was connected to George Jordan, father of Elizabeth Jordan who married John Tarver, a son of Andrew and brother to Andrew Hipkin Tarver II.George had a daughter Olive, but she was born in the mid 1750's.
It appears that Benjamin J. Tarver, brother to Hartwell Hill Tarver may have been born about 1780-1785 and a wife would have been born about that time or later, so Olivia whom he married may have been a daughter to some of the Jordans.
I am not sure about Joseph Tarver........In all of the older Tarvers I have only seen no more than 3-4 references to a Joseph Tarver.........There was a Joseph Tarver from Barnwell county, SC who went on in to Montgomery county, Ala. but as I recall it would have been after 1820.
1820 Twiggs would have been about the time, Hartwell, R.R. and Wm. M. and Henry A. Tarver would be moving there.
I am not sure about Tabetha Tarver, being married by 1808 would place her birth about 1785-1790 making her a possible sister of Anddrew Hipkin Tarver III who was there by 1810 as noted above.
Also, there is a Hannah Tarver, in Morgan county, who married a Bandy there Jan 12, 1826.Bandy passed away in Morgan county, Ga. July 29, 1829.I cannot yet place her with the other Morgan county, Tarvers.
And in a Morgan county, Ga. 1839 tax list are found among other Shepherds, Thomas Shepherd and Talman Shepherd.
In that same list the only Tarver found was B.J. Tarver.
Maybe Joseph who died in 1820 was connected in some way to Benjamin J. Tarver or the B.J. Tarver there in 1839.
In all of this, one theme begins to emerge as a distinct possibility:That I have blown it................
Could it be that Andrew Tarver of Brunswick county, Va. and Andrew Hipkin Tarver II are one and the same????
There are so many oddities that keep cropping up with the references in Morgan county, Ga.
Maybe Andrew Hipkin Tarver III is the oldest son of Andrew Hipkin Tarver II and had a different mother than maybe Benjamin and Nancy (maybe their mother was Ann Young) and then Elizabeth Hartwell was the mother to the other sons; Hartwell, Wm. M. R.R. and Henry A. Maybe Tabitha fits in some where as an older sister along with Benjamin and Nancy.
Also, Andrew Tarver obtained a land grant in Warren county, Ga. 1815 202 and 1/10, Book K-5, p. 208. S0 it must not have been in a lottery.But it is odd that in some of the information you sent earlier that Andrew Hipkin Tarver III obtained about 200 acres at about the same time in 1814 or so in Warren county, Ga. Were both transactions Andrew III or could it be that one was Andrew II and one Andrew III.
I was attempting to tie in an older Rufus Tarver due to the uncommon name to Andrew Hipkin Tarver II as well and possibly Jonathan V. Tarver.I am not sure how they fit exactly, but will keep working at it.
I have never been able to consolidate the Andrew Tarver of Brunswick county, Va with the Andrew Hipkin Tarver II, but I certainly am not ruling it out at this juncture.It continues to haunt me.
I have the full context of the above transactions and can provide it later, should you desire.
Thanks again for all the amazingly detailed information you are able to obtain.
