6 Tarver brothers in Revolutionary War-- John, Benjamin and ??

Would like to discuss with anyone interested in identifying the 6 brothers who fought in the Revolutionay War as mentioned in the piece, Prominent Tennesseans--Hon. Benj. J. Tarver, which identifies one of the brothers as Benjamin who settled in Wilson county, Tenn. --In the Biographical Sketch by B. Tarver; the same Benjamin is identified with an older brother named John---Attempting to identify the other brothers and to place the John in southern Ms. in the early 1800's--It is my belief that this Benjamin and John are the sons of another Benjamin who was a captain in the Revolutionary War on one expedition into Va. to deliver prisoners--I feel that records existing in Greensville county, Va. tend to indicate that the above brothers, John and Benjamin were residing in that county in the time period 1783 to 1785. Another possible brother, Andrew married Ann Young in that county in 1785. An Ann Young is shown on the first census of Greensville county, Va. (1783 to 1785) 3 households away from the John Tarbor household on that same census. I feel that this Andrew was the father of Hartwell Hill Tarver, who eventually became a wealthy land owner in Twiggs county, Ga. and who resided in Tarversville, Ga. there. My line is out of the southern Ms. Tarvers, most likely the John who is shown there in Amite county in time period 1810 or so to the early 1820's. Any ideas, thoughts and discussion will be greatly appreciated.

I don't know much about the brothers in Rev. War, but I do know something about the John Tarver in Barnwell who moved to Amite. Feel free to contact me at csims4120@comcast.net if you would like to discuss.

Surnames: Tarver, Keenan
I am trying to find the connection between my relative, Henry Tarver, to Hartwell Hill Tarver. I have found them in several census' living next door to each other, along with William M. Tarver in Georgia. They are of the same generation, and believe they are all brothers. Does anyone have information of who Hartwell's parents are? I have seen postings of his parent's names, but not a complete list of their children. Any help would be great! Info from a Tarver/Kennan family bible says that Henry, born abt. 1796, died in a tornado in Georgia. His daughter, Susan Ann Tarver, married Thomas Franklin Keenan. Home email is tceattle@comcast.net.

Surnames: Tarver

Andrew Tarver (c1764-1820) was the father of Hartwell Hill Tarver. Hartwell's mother was Elizabeth Hartwell Tarver (b 1791, Brunswick County Georgia)

Hartwell accumulated the land that became the plantation in Twiggs Co. and owned the trading post that became Albany Georgia. I know more about this line of Tarvers if you are interested.

I am very much interested in finding out which Tarver brothers fought in the American Revolution.

Surnames: Tarver / Allen
I'm interested in any info on Andrew Tarver. Andrew and Ann had a daughter Nancy who married Wyatt Allen 1805. They had three boys that I know of; Robert L Allen, Andrew Young Allen and Wyatt Carter Allen who is my line. What is interesting is Wyatt Allen appears in the 1840 Twiggs co census and Nancy Tarver Allen appears in the 1850 census by herself. In your pervious post you mention Hartwell living in Twiggs Co. Any info you may have on the names above would be greatly appreciated

Jill,
I have Andrew Young being married to Ann Young Greenville Co, Va 1785. Could Elizabeth been his second wife. Andrew and Ann had a daughter Nancy who married Wyatt Allen December 19, 1805 Brunswick Co., Virginia. Wyatt and Nancy migrated to Twiggs county about 1840. Any thoughts? Two Andrews? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

I have lots of info on Hartwell, but not on the Allen family, as they are not in our line. If you'd like more info on Hartwell (he moved to Twiggs in 1816, was richest man in Ga.,owned a lot of land, was a founder of Albany Ga., etc.) I'm happy to share.
