Since I don't know either Robert L. Tarter's date of birth or death, I'm a bit at a loss.

If he was born before 1880, try looking at the online 1880 census available at
It's not perfect, there are some gaps, but it's pretty useful.

If you know where he died and the date of death, try getting a death certificate. It should contain his parents' names. The chart at gives the dates at which each state started issuing certificates.

The only Robert L. Tarter I have in my database married Isabella Garner in 1907, so I don't think he's the person you're looking for.
