Re: Robert Lincoln Tarter

Atlanta Robert Tarter is a composite person. She is listed as Atlanta in the 1870 census and he is listed as Robert in the 1880 census, but both have the same date of birth. Robert is not found in the 1870C HH, Atlanta is not found in the 1880C HH. Thus the assumption that these are the same individual.

Atlanta Robert Tarter's parents were indeed William Riley Tarter and Netaeris "Nettie" Baker. I do not have evidence that convinces me one way or the other that this person was male or female. However there is no marriage record for Atlanta Tarter between 1887 and 1910, and the only marriage record for Robert Tarter is the previously mentioned one (in this thread) to Isabella Garner, which is a different Robert.

The online 1880 census index lists seven Robert Tarters, three born in the 1860s - you might want to look at all of them.

You indicate that you know Luler Tarter's date of death - do you know Robert Lincoln Tarter's date of death? The best way to discover his parents' names would be his death certificate, if one was issued. If he died in Arkansas, they started issuing death certificates in 1913.
