I am related to the Tarkington's. I am not sure which is correct could someone help me I have found two different first names. My ggg grandfather was Wilson A. Bunnell and he married a Tarkington one site says Jettie Ann and one site says Justianna does anyone know for sure which one is correct? Also my grandmother Nettie Lou Bunnell Carter had a sister named Louise who also married a Tarkington does anyone know who she is married to? My dad told me that they came from Dyersburg,Tennessee. Any one who can help me clear this up I would sure love to hear from you.

I just began to create my ancestry. My grandmother, Margaret Nicholson Winsor Forbes, always told me I was related to Newton Booth Tarkington and Haute. I have run out of clues, My great-grandmother was Mary Cordellia Nicholson Winsor married to George Ames Winsor, and I believe this would be how I am related, I just am not sure exactly how. I remember she mentioned and Elizabeth Ames, however I can not locate specific info on this person either. Any suggestions? Thanks Alison Winsor Forbes Miller

My husband's family is related to Amanda Jett Wells. Amanda is my father-in-law's grandmother. We just visited McGinnis Cemetery where Burton Tarkington, Sarah & Barnet Jett, Jesse & Amanda Wells Harmon and their children are buried. My father-in-law never knew why his grandparents were buried in that particular cemetery so it was really interesting for us to find out that Amanda was Burton's grandchild. Now it makes sense to us.

The new site is fantastic and very helpful. I am researching the Isaac Tarkington, b. abt. 1811 in Columbia, NC, line (am trying to find out who his parents were - have had a cousin in Utah tell me that his father was a John Tarkington, born 1792, but so far can't locate him). Anyhow, Isaac married Nancy West in 1836 in Tyrrell County, NC. If anyone is also tracing this family line, I'd be happy to share what info I have with you. Keep up the great work on this site!

We are looking for our ancesters, Robert and Harriet Tarkington. He was born 1815 and she was born 1829, In North Carolina. They died in Homer, La. They were "Mulattoes". Do you have any information on "slaves" owned by your Ancesters? We would appreciate any that you have. We do understand that slavery was a part of the system of that day and time, and as such, a part of our past, since we identify as African-Americans. Thanking you very much, John and Leola Johnson
