Re: another piece of the early Tarver puzzle
The original parents consent for the marriage of Absalom Harris to Elizabeth Tarver shows her parents as Andrew Tarver and Elizabeth Jordan. The compiled index of marriage bonds, parents consents, ministers records and returns somehow botched this and showed her as Elizabeth Jordan widow. This Andrew and wife Elizabeth Jordan died in Northampton Co., NC
in 1780. His will probated in March Court 1780 gives his daughter Elizabeth one negro, etc now in possession of her husband Absalom Harris. Northampton Will Bk 1, pg 220, Will Number 147. The will names five other daughters, one son and four unnamed sons. Harris family records show this Andrew Tarver as born c1723 in Surry Co., Va.
