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 http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp?PAGE=census/search_census.asp
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 http://www.chronography.com/death.html 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.
