I need help with info on Sarah Elizabeth Tarter's parents. She married George Washington Dudley 17 Dec 1872 in Adair County, KY. She is the only Tarter I have any info on.

But, I do have photos of her.

Plus, there is a Tarters Chapel Church and Cemetery in Adair County, KY. The cemetery and original church were on my grandfather's farm, and I attended church there as a small child. There are (of course) Tarters buried there. If anyone knows for sure they have a relative buried there, or if they can give me names and dates I can check for them, and would make photos and send them e-mail.

If anyone can help me, or I can help them, please, e-mail me at

I have just begun looking for my grandfather's ancestors. He was James Monte Tarter, and I think he was from Russellville, KY. However, he married Maude Elle Holt of Adair Co., which I have visited. I am interested in any Tarter family information from Adair County. Thanks!

Please, send me your e-mail so I can send you what I have so far on the Tarter Family. George Washington Dudley married Sarah Elizabeth Tarter. I have found that her parents are Shelby Mary Ann (Retherford)Tarter. If you don't mind to, please, send me what info you have from yourself up to as far as you've got. Then I'll do all I can to fill in the blanks. I've tried working on all sides of my family at once, which makes slow progress on all of them. If we work together, though, it can help both of us. I have a copy of Shelby Mary Ann Tarter's marriage bond, which I'll e-mail you a copy of -as soon as I get my scanner repaired.
My e-mail is: I hope to hear from you again soon.

A distance cousin,
