Thank you for answering my post!i am interested in silas tarter,brother to elizabeth,and the silas green tarter.
I have been searching for the tarter/roberts family for a few months now.i am new at this lol!i am i guess a direct descendant of elizabeth(tarter) roberts.i came into possesion of the tarter family bible when my grandmother Onnie(Roberts) Roman passed away.Her fathers name was cuda r roberts.i believe that cuda is the son of martha jane roberts,daughter of elizabeth and absolem roberts.martha jane was one of eight children (that i know of)- of elizabeth and absolem----

1)Elias frances roberts b:june 30,1844 d:aft 1879 m:hester elizabeth trimble had children
2)sarah e. roberts b:1846 d:1919 pulaski,m: george dyer daulton on oct 8,1880. (source "Kentucky tarters"-elmeree tarter oakley)has children
3)silas (J or G) roberts b:1847.listed in family bible as died on april 11,1873.m:nancy trimble on aug 24,1871
4)mary elizabeth roberts b:1849 m:john wesley daulton-has 9 children
5)celia robertsb:1852 d:1922
6)martha jane roberts b:nov 24,1853 d:feb 16,1942 pulaski m:drury burge aug 20,1874-shown as divorced in 1880 census.
7)malvina roberts b:may 15,1856 d: 1926 faubush,ky.
8)nancy m. roberts b:july 17,1860 d: oct 30,1926 ringgold,pulaski.m:emerson marshall vaughn march 19,1891,has children.

eliabeth tarter and her siblings are listed in my bible as are some of their children.they have one grandchild listed born in 1901,lesley roberts-who is the brother of my grandmother(my fathers mother).on the top inside of the bible it is written this book belongs to john L logan.
i believe that this book may have been owned by silas tarters brother in law at one time.silas was married to americus(america)ann logan.her brothers name was john lincoln logan.

names in bible-

elizabeth tarter b. jan 21st,1822
selah tarter b:july 13th,1823
silas tarter b:dec 26th,1824
silas (J or G)roberts died april 11th,1873
(note-i believe he may be silas green roberts because i also have a patrick green roberts listed as a grandson to elizabeth roberts living with her(widowed)in the 1880 census)

nancy tarter b:aug 17th,1826
john d. tarter b:dec 22nd,1827

cuda roberts b:may 12th,1881 (my great-great grandfather)
samey d. burge b:may 10,1875
lesley roberts b:march 25th,1901

there is 2 names written on inside of bible
james buchanan and silas tarter,esquire

note-in all the sources i have found for martha jane roberts some have her listed as born in 1858,as does the family bible- and some in 1853?
I would appreciate any help if anyone knows anything about any of my tarters and roberts.especially the parents of cuda roberts and patrick green roberts.i believe they are one of elizabeths daughters but would like proof to which one!THANKS!
