Re: another piece of the early Tarver puzzle
Billison Tarver was a son of James Tarver who died in NHT county, NC and left his will there in 1775-1776.
James Tarver married Lucy Seat, a daughter of Billison Seat.I believe Billison Tarver, son of James and Lucy Seat Tarver, then, was named for his grandfather, Billison Seat.
James Tarver and Lucy Seat Tarver did not have any sons named Joseph as for as his will reveals.
With James Garrett and Tabitha Tarver Garrett moving on into Twiggs county, it would seem that the Joseph Tarver would come out of the Twiggs county, Ga group of Tarvers.
Joseph of Barnwell county, SC would not be a candidate as he was still alive in 1820.
There was a Joseph Tarbrough as a witness in Randolph county, Ga in a transaction involving Samuel B. Tarver in 1836.Samuel B.Tarver married Charlotte Tarver, a daughter of John Tarver of Wilkes county, Ga. John of Wilkes and Andrew H. II as we know were brothers.
More to come when I can.
