History of the Richard Tarvin I Descendants


Generation No. 5


7. FREDERICK5 TARVIN (WILLIAM4, RICHARD3, GEORGE2, RICHARD1)

Notes for FREDERICK TARVIN:
THIS is an excerpt from a tape recording of
THE TARVIN FAMILY REUNION
DESCENDANTS OF REDDICK S. & HARRIET HUFFMAN TARVIN
held Aug 4, 1984
Burns Park, North Little Rock, Arkansas

P. 2. of Joe Little Tarvin's talk:

" Richard Tarvin, b. ca 1690, lived at Port Tobacco, Maryland. He married Elizabeth Dent. The Dents were quite famous up there!

He also had a son, William, who migrated south to the then small town of Augusta, Georgia, in 1757, with a small son, George, and they settled there. George fought in the Revolutionary War. His brother, John, was a citizen of the creek nation and lived among the Creek Indians. It looks like there was a son named Frederick. We think he is our . . . my great grandfather, the father of Reddick S. Tarvin. They went from Georgia to Alabama. We found Reddick & Harriet Huffman Tarvin married in Macon Co., Alabama. Tuskegee! There is a picture here, somewhere, of that courthouse. It was built about . . . 1833!

In 1837, Reddick & Harriet appear to be the third couple to be married there. They went to Hampton,
down in Calhoun Co., Arkansas. The Moro Bay area! In 1874, some moved to Perry Co., Arkansas. They had nine boys & three girls. Some of those are represented here today!"

( I believe the unamed child of William I, b. 1727, & Nancy Tarvin Charles Co., Maryland, was this Frederick who Joe L. Tarvin is referring to above, and the father of Reddick S. Tarvin, but this is not proven.) There was a Frederick Tarver (notice the different spelling) that showed up in Harris Co., Georgia in 1830 (see below). Macon Co., Alabama is only one county across the state line from Harris Co. by Cz
