Was John Tarter the son of Balzer Tarter?

>>John Tarter which was the son of Balzer who was the son of Johannes Darter.

It should be pointed out that this is an unproven assertion on the part of many researchers. Balzer's will names his living children, but does not name John, who would have been living at the time. The other children were local to Wythe Co., VA, while John is supposed to have arrived in KY in 1788 (land record prove that he was there by 1806). So it might be the case that Balzer did not name John because there was no way to get his inheritance to him.

It's also possible that John isn't Balzer's son.

If you have documentary evidence linking John to Balzer, I would be very interested.
