In Reply to: Tarter Family from Illinois by Sheila Schilling of 528

I am looking for information about my motherís fatherís family. Grandpa's name was William (Willie) Augustus Tarter (8/18/1882 Ė 8/15/1957). At some point in time, he changed the spelling to Tartar. Grandpa's first wife was Bessie Brantly; they had a son Dewey. After Bessie died, Grandpa married my grandmother, Ethel Verna Reid Lain Tartar. Grandpa was born in Union County,Tennessee, but his family moved to Illinois - we believe the Bloomington area. Grandpa and Grandma later moved to Kokomo, Indiana.

The following is a list of my grandfatherís family, as we know it to be.

Father - Marion E.Tarter (died in Ohio)
Mother - Sarah Bowman
Brother - Maynard Tarter
Brother - James Frank (Frank)
Sister - Susan Tarter Brantly
Sister - Thurza Tarter Brantly
Son - Dewey Tartar
Son - Francis Tartar
Son - Raymond Tartar
Daughter - Ethel Fauntaine Tartar Weir
Stepson - Emmitt Lain
Stepson - Reid Lain
