John, born 1735, died Jan. 20 1784. Came to Maryland from Germany in 1764. Went from there to Elliott Mills, Maryland and took his oath of allegiance at Baltimore, Maryland Sept 26, 1768. Any connection?

You provided the infomration in your Friday, May 26, 2000 posting that I have been searching for a long time. Do you have any of the backup documentation or sources? My undertstanding is that John Balzter Tarr had sons Christian, Henery, Peter, Frederick,Daniel and John. They went to Western Pennsylvania around 1795. Christian became a Congressman. My part of the family, John, went to Westmoreland County, PA, outside of Pittsburgh, and lived in a place called Tarrs or Tarrs Station, PA. Any further information you can provide would be great, including any source materials.

I believe that we have chatted before and that we are cousins. Do you live in Tn? Have you found anymore Tarr's? I went to the archieves last week and look up some of the history. I am going back hopefully in July. Catch you later. Jack Tarr was my ggrandfather. Linda Barber Zumwalt

Good Morning Marlene,
My G/Father was James R. Tarr, and I'm wondering if there is any connection of the Tarr family of Tarrs Station, known as Tarr, Pa. I was born in Tarr, Pa. Thanks, Gene

My husbands family is related to the Tarr's in Tarr Station and many were located in West Virginia and Ohio. We do not have a James R. Please give us more information about him.

Yes, there is a connection to Tarr Station. Tell us more about John R. as he does not appear in our data base. Who were his parents and their birth places and birthdates?

Classification: Query
Could he be Johannes Baltasar or Balthasar Tarr? This is what someone sent me recently: "Another book is the Venango & Armstrong County Histories by Stark Co., of Wellsville, Ohio. Reference to this material may be found in the book, Philip Reagan 1743-1848 and His Descendants, compiled by Della Reagan Fischer 1970. (Hester Reagan married John B. Tarr.) In the event that you are unable to find the book, here is a synopsis of what the book contains. 'Daniel Tarr son of John Tarr, of Scotch-German extraction. His father, John Tarr was a native of Ellicott's Mills, Maryland but immigrated to near Stonerville, this county (Westmoreland County, PA) where he was one of the earliest settlers, taking " ' "tomahawk possession" (marking the tree by cutting a mark in the bark of the tree) of 100 acres of land, on which he lived until his death. He was a potter by trade, a member of the Lutheran church and the father of five sons: Daniel, Henry, Casper [sometimes spelled Gasper], Frederick and Christian; and five daughters, Maria, Sarah, Catherine, Elizabeth and infant, which is dead. Daniel Tarr, was born in East Huntington Twp., (Westmoreland County, PA) in 1755 where he died in 1848. He was a whig and one of the earliest opponents of slavery. His brother, Christian, served in congress, having been sent from Fayette County, PA. Daniel Tarr married Frances Campbell of Winchester, VA. and was the father of six children; [one was Harriet, m. Dr. David B. Rhoads.] Once he was captured by the Indians, who were numerous and hostile, and held in captivity for three years. He was a large and powerful man and in fact the entire race of Tarrs have been conspicuous for their size." I hope that this helps in your research attempts at finding Daniel Tarr and his ancestors. Rich Wolfe."
