John Tabor of Anderson Co TN
John O. Tabor was born in NC in 1803 and died in St. Francois Co MO in 1869. We had the information from a book on the History St. Francois Co Mo, that one of his daughters said that she had been born in Anderson Co TN, so we began to research that area. My cousin went to the McClung Library in Knox Co TN and found some records of Tabors in early Anderson, and I sent for microfilms of land deeds in Anderson, Morgan and Roane from TSLA. The info that we found there plus census research leads us to believe that the parents of our John O. Tabor are John and Agness Justice Tabor, s/o John and Elizabeth Sharpe Tabor of Rutherford Co NC. There is much conflicting data on John (who married Agness and will be referred to as John 1 in this document) in various genealogies posted on the web. He is said to have had 3 wives: 1.Elizabeth Parker married in 1785 in GA, 2. Agness Justice married in 1788, NC. 3. Dorcas Stovall, married in 1808 in GA. He is also supposed to have died in 1832 in Bledsoe Co TN and had his will proved in Franklin Co GA. I have included a section at the end of this document which discusses the GA Johns. We believe that Eli Lewis Tabor had a son named John O also (see 1850 census of Ozark Co MO, but the John O that is referred to most often in this document is the one b in 1803 NC, s/o John1 and Agness Justice Tabor.

1740
Name: John TABOR Sex: M Birth: 1740 in
Goochland Co, VA Death:1805 in Rutherford Co., NC
Note:John Tabor was born In 1740, In Virginia Colony. He was married before
1760 In Orange County, North Carolina to Elizabeth Sharp (e)
who was born In 1740 and still alive In 1815 In Rutherford County, North Carolina.....
The 1790 Census for North Carolina lists
John Tabor having 4 white males over16, 4 white males under 16, and 3 females In
12th District of Morgan of Rutherford County. He Is listed In the 1800 census but
not In the 1810 census...John Tabor died 1805 and his will was probated In
1805/1806 In Rutherford County NC. His will was written 24 September,1805 and names
his sons,Soloman,and Thomas,as executor.........[ He died at the age of 65 years]

The Following is a copy of John Tabor's will from the records of the
January Court of 1806. it is a certified copy from North Carolina, Rutherford County:

John O Tabor born in NC [source: 1850 census of St. Francois Co MO] Middle initial was
from a document certifying the birth of one of his grandchildren. Couldn't tell for sure if it was an
O or a D but looked like an O to me.

1801-1809
There was a seperate book Anderson Co. Court Records 1801-1809. No Tabors listed.[source Darleen Trent, Roane Co TN Historian]

1806
A John Tabor was on the tax list for Knox Co TN.
I found your John Tabor in early Knox Co. TN. In the early Tax List of east TN. He had no acreage. But a Michael Talbor(Talbot?) had 100 acre's. Taxable. Misspelled names were very common in that time frame. John Haskins was also in Hawkins Co. TN 1783. Listed on the rolls or account Books of Capt. Thomas Amis trading post. (see 1825 for more on Haskins) This could also be the John Tabor who settled in Rutherford Co TN ( see end of this document for his stats)

1808
William and Mary Tabor Thompson moved to Anderson Co TN:
Mary TABOR Sex: F Birth: 17 Apr 1763 in NC Death: 14 Aug1860 in Anderson Co., TN
Father: John TABOR b: 1740 in Goochland Co, VA
Mother: Elizabeth SHARPE b: 1742 inNC
Marriage 1 William THOMPSON b: ABT 1760 in NCMarried: 8 Jan 1784 in
Rutherford Co, NC IndexID: I01375
Name: William THOMPSON Sex: M Birth: 1760 in NC
Death: 5 FEB1811 in Anderson Co., TN
Note:William Thompson was born in North
Carolina about 1760 and his father was David Thompson (possibly an Irish
immigrant) who died aout 1801 in Rutherford Co., NC. William also had a sister
Eleanor who married a [ ? ] McMurry. William Thompson enlisted in the
Revolutionary War while residing in Rutherford Co., NC and served under Lt. Col.
Samuel Hammond in a South Carolina regiment. He fought in the battles of King's
Mountain and Eutaw Springs and served 30 days during 1782. The family settled in
Rutherford Co., NC and very little has been found concerning William Thompson
from 1784 until he left for Tennessee about 1808. From records of Pendleton Co.,
SC, a William Thompson was one of the earliest settlers in this area. On 30 Nov.
1801, he and his wife Mary sold land on Rocky River SC granted to them 15 Oct. 1784,
to Drury Thompson, enumerated in 1800 in the Anderson Co. area. William Thompson
and Mary Tabor were probably married in Rutherford Co., NC about 1784. They raised
all of their children there before moving to Anderson Co., TN about 1808. William
Thompson is said to have fought in the Battle of New Orleans in 1815 under
General Andrew Jackson (as stated in the "Goodspeed" bibliography for Henry
Thompson for Crawford Co., AR). However,this seems unlikely if he died in 1811.
Obviously, one of these "facts" is incorrect. Mary (Tabor) Thompson was allowed
A pension on an application executed on 4 Feb. 1840 while she was residing
In Anderson Co., TN, at age 77 years (FPA W1001; BLWt. 5209-160-55; AA7756;L205;
M24; PI). All of the names and birth dates of the children of William and Mary
Thompson are given in this pension application.
[I BELIEVE THAT MARY'S BROTHER JOHN FOLLOWED HER TO ANDERSON CO. TN.
AFTER 1815, HER YOUNGEST BROTHER ELI CAME TO MORGAN CO, THE AREA WHERE
THEY LIVED WAS NEAR THE TOWN OF OLIVER SPRINGS WHICH LIES ON THE BORDER OF 3 COUNTIES, MORGAN, ROANE AND ANDERSON ]
I'm working on Wm. Thompson and Mary Tabor's children. Kind of hard to get > it straight, but it appears that their daughter Elizabeth b. 4/21/1789 md. > Samuel C. Young @ 1810. A Samuel C. Young witnessed Peter Johnson's 1841 > land sale. I'll let you know what else I turn up.

I believe that the William Tabor in White Co in 1808-9 was William, s/o John and Elizabeth Sharpe Tabor despite the fact that he was supposed to have been in Franklin Co TN at that time. It is possible that he got the landgrants and didn't move there for a couple of years.The landgrants for William Tabor in White Co in 1838 were for the son of John and Agness.

Joining his 40 acre Survey on said Creek...Surveyed 5 May 1819 by Benj. C. White, D. S., Collin Roberts and John Taber, S.C.C.

1811
Anderson Co. Records Court Minutes 1810-1834.
There is an entry on 7/10/1811 where road work is being ordered and it begins from where William Taber now lives down the Buckhorn Valley past Bradens plantation from there past Wm. Tunnell, Sr and from thence past where Rueben Peters lives from there the best and nearest way to where it will intersect the road leading by Wm. Mc Kamy. [source; Anderson Co records at McClung Library, Knoxville, TN]
This could be William and Susannah Tubb Tabor, but William had two landgrants in White Co TN in 1808-9. A person had five years to improve their landgrants or lose them.So, it's possible that they were in Anderson Co for a couple of years before moving on to White because there were no more records for him and he never served on a jury like John did, indicating that he didn't own land. The information that I have found on William is contradictory.
Most people agree that :
William Tabor & Susannah Tubb were married by the Rev. Joseph Komp on July 5th1781...
They resided in Rutherford County North Carolina for several years after their
marriage, where he was called back into the Army to aid in supressing Indian
attacks on the outlying Country.They moved to South Carolina with a brother of
William Tabor; his name Solomon Tabor and several members of the Tubb family
and organized the Shoal Creek Baptist Church in Oconee County, formerly
Pendleton District. William Tabor and his family resided in Shoal Creek
Community until about 1803. Then they moved with other members of the Tabor
families to Tennessee where they resided for eleven years. they then moved to
Bibb County Alabama where they resided until about 1825

I think that this William on the road crew is the son of John1 b in 1798 and the person who transcribed the original document got the date wrong - it was probably 1819. When my cousin went to the McClung Library in Knoxville, she wrote down this and the land sale from John Bounds to John Tabor (see 1817) from the same book. The book had the date for the land sale as 1812 but when we sent for a copy of the deed , it was 1817.

3/3/1812
#3392 " in Consideration of an entry made in the surveyors office of the fourth District of Number 1488 dated the third Day of March 1812 founded on a certificate of Number 279 issured by the Commissioner of West Tennessee to John G. Blount for five hundred & seven acres of land dated the 22nd Day of July 1809 Twenty acres of which are assigned to George Hoskins the Enterer there is granted by the said State of Tennessee unto John Taber assignee of Said Hoskins the Enterer and his heirs a certain tract or parcel of Land containing 15 acres lying in the county of Anderson .on a branch of the mountain fork of Poplar Creek in Powells Valley near foot of Walden's Ridge.

1812
There were numerous entries where John Taber had served on a jury between 1812 and 1814 in Anderson Co.John definitely owned land in Anderson during 1812-1814 since he was called for jury duty--a privilege reserved for landowners. Darleen Trent said that only landowners could be on a jury and since John1 was on juries in 1812-14, he must have owned other land besides the 1815 tract. I wonder why it wan't recorded. Could he have bought it from his sister and her husband and since it was 'in the family', they didn't record it?
John O. Tabor's parents-in-law, Peter and Nancy Lively Johnson and their family moved to Anderson Co.TN from Amhearst Co VA this year.


1813
Anderson Co. Records Court Minutes 1810-1834 was an entry State Vs. William Taber. The record did not say what action he was charged with. Entry was Thur. Jan. 14, 1813. Page 173. He pleaded not guilty to the charge, but was found guilty by a jury. Names on the jury were Henry Atter, Michael Hoster,James Davidson, Benjamin Langford, Matt Heath, John Tunnell, Britton Cross,George Hensley, Richard Campbell, John Rector, John Bounds and Thomas Hope.He was fined 6 1/4 cents plus court costs. John Taber came into court and acknowledged himself bound to pay said costs charged in the Bill of Indictment. "Therefore it is considered by the court that for such his offence he be fined 6 1/4 cents and pay the costs of his prosecution".
Because John Tabor came into court and acknowledged himself 'bound' to pay the court costs, I am assuming that this Wm is his son and a minor at this time.

1815
Sometime after 1815, Eli Tabor s/o John And Elizabeth Sharpe moved to Morgan Co TN. He lived near the John Tabor who lived in Anderson Co, right where Anderson, Morgan and Roane Co's met near Oliver Springs TN.

It's possible that Elizabeth went to TN with Eli because a woman her age is living with Mary Tabor Thompson, her daughter, in the 1830 census of Anderson Co.

1815
From "Tennessee Fourth Surveyor's District Land Surveys 1814 1824 (Anderson, Bledsoe, Campbell, Morgan, Overton, Rhea and Roane Counties, Tenn.)" compiled and ndexed by Robert L. Bailey 1996.
pg 57 (p. 146-147) No. 1157 John Tabor 10 acres Anderson county Filed 27 May 1815. In pursuance of an entry made by John Tabor of No. 1889. Dated July 15th 1814. Entered on part of a certificate No. 1744. Dated April 29th 1814. Issued by David McGavock to Elijah Drake for 10 acres of land. I have surveyed for said John Tabor, 10 acres of land in said county on the waters of the mountain fork of Poplar Creek...upper line of a fiftenn acre survey where he now lives...Surveyed 19 Jul 1814 by Robert Tunnell, D.S, William Tabor and John Tabor, S.C.C. (this means sworn chain carrier - most are kin or close neighbors to the one having the survey done. We wondered if a person could be a SCC for his own property or if there was another John Tabor in the area. I got this message from a surveyor:
Hi Sherry! It was standard practice for surveyors to employ whoever they could get as chain-men when conducting surveys. Although requirements vary from state to state, in many instances, County (or District) Surveyors would swear in their chain-men prior to conducting the survey. It was more or less the equivalent of a sheriff deputizing men for a posse. Generally, they were sworn to make careful and accurate measurements, and to record the same. While the surveyor was responsible for the overall accuracy of the survey, sworn chain-men also served as witnesses to the process of conducting the survey and could attest to how it had been done. When I carried a range pole (I was called a 'flag-man.') in the late 1950's for my granddad, Ernest Roberts, County Surveyor of Fulton County, Arkansas for many years, he regularly swore in me and his chain-men before each survey. **If there was no dispute involved, it was quite common for the land owners concerned, their relations or employees to act as chain-men as a way of reducing the cost of the survey**. In addition, they virtually always provided one or more men to cut brush, and clear away a line of sight for the instrument. As you suggest, in cases of dispute, this practice could raise questions about the survey. Whenever my granddad was aware of such problems, he always employed chain-men who were not involved in the matter as a simple precaution. Modern distance measuring surveying equipment has largely reduced the need for chain-men. Most modern surveyors employ microwave or laser-beam distance measuring equipment that is far more accurate and that doesn't require the service of chain-men at all. Instead of the party of surveyor, flag or range pole man, two or more chain-men and a crew to cut brush and clear a line of sight, the typical modern survey crew consists just two men - the surveyor on the instrument and the flag-man. -- Robert W.

pg 118 (p. 278) No. 1529 Samuel Siebers 10 Acres Anderson County Filed 31 May 1817. In Pursuance of an Entry made by Samuel Siebers of No. 2744. Dated 28 Nov. 1816. Founded on part of a Certificate No. 55. Dated 26 Oct.1809. Issued by Archibald Roane to Joseph Byrds Heirs for 500 acres of land. I have surveyed for said Siebers 10 acres of land in said County on the waters of the mountain fork of Poplar Creek above where he lives...Surveyed 7 Jan 1817 by John McClellan, Surveyor. Micajah Forst and William Tabor, S.C. B.( sworn chain bearer).
[Samuel Seibers is married to Isabella Frost d/o Micajah Frost and Nancy Robbins. Samuel is the s/o Philip Sieber and Mary Lively. Not sure how Mary is connected. Believe she might be Nancy Johnson's sister but is not listed that way on any list, maybe a cousin.(Peter Johnson was married to Nancy Lively and he was the father-in-law of John O. Tabor]. Nancy's brother Joseph Lively married Mary Sieber d/o of Philip. Mary's brother John Sieber m Clarissa Carnall. Their daughter Malinda b. 1800 m John Seiber s/ o Phillip Seiber, Jr. Their son Joseph b. 1808 m. Mary Seiber d/o Philip Seiber, Jr. Malinda Lively and John Seiber's daughter Clarissa b. 1832 m Jesse Silvey. Their son George Seiber m Latha Jand Silvey d/ o John Silvey and Rhoda Cunningham. John is the son of Wm Silvey. Wm. Silvey's son Rial married Peter and Nancy Johnson's daughter Celia. And more importantly this ties William Tabor to the Seiber family which is tied to the Lively family.

Land sale to John Taber from James Bounds of Anderson Co., TN. Sale was for 100 acres on the north side of Brushy Fork of Poplar Creek part of 1850 acres survey granted by N. C. to Robert Young to William Tunnell's west corner to the Woolf Suck branch up to the original line to west corner etc, Reg, 1/15/1819 witnesses Wm. Tunnells,David Hicks and James Bounds.price was $10.
source: Anderson Co Index to Deeds 1802 - 1906. Roll 28

The 1817 land transaction cited above apparently started out as a North Carolina land grant (probably a land patent grant) issued to Robert Young but was just a straight land sale for $10.00 to John Tabor. A lot of these land patent grants were issued to land speculators who did all the paperwork necessary to obtain the land grant and then turned around and sold it before they lost it.
There was a stipulation on all these land patent land grants that thegrantee had five years to move onto the land and make improvements. If they failed to do so, another settler could come and apply for their own land grant on a portion of the earlier grant. Anderson Co Deeds Book E-1 p. 22.

Sold property was part of an original land grant to Robert Young and bordered William Tunnells land. Wit. Wm Tunnell and David Hicks. Note Wm. Taber was also living on a road where a Wm. Tunnell lived. [see 1811]

BUTLER, William
Was the father of a bastard child by ALCY TALER (Taber) and on 13 Apr 1824 was ordered to pay support to JOHN TABER the father of said ALCY. Thomas Buter was security (Anderson TN)
12 July 1824 the money due from WILLIAM BUTLER to ELENDER TABER for the maintainence of a bastard child begotten by him on the body of said ELENDER was ordered to be paid to CHARLES OLIVER.
10 Apr 1826. WILLIAM BOTELER made petition that SALLY TABER, the illegitimate child of ELENOR TABER with which he stands charged as the father, may be made legetimate and hereafter be called SALLY BOTELER, which petition was granted and ordered accodingly that said SALLY be a ???? heir to WILLIAM BUTLER.
11 July 1826. ELLENOR TABER brought suit for the last years maintainance for her bastard child. WILLIAM BUTLER moved that the court take the child (he having legitimated the same) and deliver it into his possession. The court decided the child should remain with it's mother
[source: Sharon Tabor]
The only new information I turned up was that one of the court records on the Alcy/Eleandor Tabor illegitimate baby showed the baby was 12 months old by 4/13/1824. [Marlene Ross]
I checked for theTaler spelling from 1814-1844 and find numerous Taylor entries but noTaler (or Talor) entry. [source: Darleen Trent]
I think that Alcy Taler/Taber and Ellenor Taber are the same person. The clerk who originally wrote this document might have written 'Ally' instead of 'Elly', nickname for Elinor, Notice that he mispelled Elinor twice. Then the transcriber might have misread the word 'Ally' and thought it was 'Alcy'. See 1850 Ozark Co census for John O.Tabor, s/o Eli - he has a daughter named 'Ally'.

25 June 1824
John Taber entered 50 acres on Waters of Poplar Creek.in Anderson Co TN which is down close to Roane Co. he paid $6.25 and signed John Taber. [source: land entries of Anderson Co supplied to me by Ms.Mary S. Harris who works at the Anderson Co Couthouse]
John Tabor , 50 acres on the waters of the brushy fork of Poplar Creek. surveyed July 16, 1824.We have 1/10/1825 John Tabor sold to John Haskins 50 acres Brush Fork of Poplar Creek. This could be this 50 acres, or not. Let me know what you think.


1825
Morgan Co., TN Land Survey Book A & B 1824-1836 p. 123 had a land sale for Martin Senter for 50 acres in Morgan Co. on the waters of Emries River on a hillside near Thralekills old improvements including Leve Threllkill's Old Improvement. Surveyed 24th day of March 1825. Marftin Senter and John Taber SCC. The book said that "SCC was Sworn Chain Carriers which seems to be neighbors or kinsmen who were used as witnesses to deeds to prove in the courts the claims of person if disputes arose." [I think this might be John1, the father, because all records of a Tabor SCC ended here, and I believe that this is the year that John1 moved on or died because nothing has been found on him after 1825]

1825
John [O] Tabor purchased 100 acres of land at Marlow in Anderson County. This 100 acres he sold to his sister-in-law, Elizabeth Kesterson. She paid him in tow cloth just before he left Tennessee going West @ 1842-46. Also John Tabor got a land grant for 50 acres Grant Number 10193 January 10,1825 that joined the 100 acres.This 50 acres was given to his father-in-law,Peter Johnson and his father-in- law and mother-in-law lived on this land until they died.Peter willed his 50 acre grant to his daughter, Elizabeth at his death. [source: James Kesterson]

1 Oct 1825
John Tabor sold John Hoskins 50 acres of land on the Brushy Fork of Poplar Creek for $50. Witnesses: G.W. Hoskins and Hiram Hoskins. [source: Anderson Co Index to Deeds 1802 - 1906. Roll 28]
This is probably John1, but what happened to the rest of his property? Did he continue to live in Anderson or did he sell or give them to his son, John O? John O acquired 150 acres in Jan 1825 and all of the property seems to be accounted for according to James Kesterson (descendant of John O Tabor's wife's sister) who would not reveal his sources to me. I did not find anything in the deed index for Anderson Co. but many deeds were not recorded with the courts at that time, especially between family members. In April 1825, John Tabor was granted payments for Alcy/Ellender's illigitimate child in a court of law, and in July 1825, the court granted the payments to Charles Oliver. This is about the time that John1 disappeared from the records of Anderson Co. It is possible that he moved away or died.
John Hoskins and Hiram are living 2 pages from Peter Johnson (John O's father- in- law) in the 1850 census. John1 was near where the Johnsons lived. Since John1 bought 10 acres in 1815, 15 acres in 1815,100 acres in 1817 [and either he or his son JohnO bought 50 acres in 1824] and sold 50 acres in 1825 ,what happened to the rest of his property? Did John 1 die in Anderson instead of Bledsoe? Did he give or sell the rest of his property to JohnO ? I have found no documents for him or any of his family in Bledsoe in the 1830's. His son, William S. was in White (near the Bledsoe county line) in the1830 census but where was John1 and the rest of the family?

1826
I checked the Roane Co TN tax lists starting in 1822 to see if a Tabor shows up and in 1826 we have John Tabor in Capt.Wilson's Company paying one WP tax and no land taxes. This puts his age between 21 and 50 (this is John O because John1 would have been over 50.). I checked the 1826 tax list and there were no Johnson households in Capt. Wilson's Company which is where John was living. I recognize some of the names in his neighborhood and this was upper Roane so the right area to be your John. It's possible that his wife's family was just across the county line in either Morgan or Anderson.

1829
Eli Tabor had 50 acres surveyed 11/2/1829 Royal Price and James Thompson were the SCC. James G. Thompson b.1/28/1803 Rutherford Co., N. C. is the son of William Thompson and Mary Tabor. Royal Price was married to a Green.

1830 census has Eli Tabor living next door to Royal Price. From the numbers it looks like both Royal Prices (father and son) are in the same household. So,our John O.Tabor in the 1840 Morgan Co. census is living just a few houses from where Eli Tabor had lived in 1830.

1836-1837
A Tabor individual doesn't show up again on a Roane Tax list until 1836
when John shows up again paying one WP tax. He's still in the same
place paying one WP tax again in 1837. I checked through 1844 and these
few entries for John Tabor are the only Tabor entries listed on our tax
lists. Then I went back and checked 1814-1821 to see if I could
determine when the first Tabor individual shows up on a Roane tax list
but didn't find any listed in this book.[source: Darleen Trent]
This must be John O because poll taxes were applicable for men between 21-50.

District 1- Eli Taber 0001101-3211001,
Impossible to tell how near he was to Dicy. Have no idea how the districts were placed within the county.
District. 5 Dicy Smith 001-010001. d/o John and Agness Tabor
No other Tabors. Guess that explains where Eli was in 1840
Remember in the 1840 census Dicy was living near a Wm. B. Smith 100001-221001 family and a Wyatt A. Smith 0000010001-00000001 family. I looked at the Wyatt Smith family because he would have been of an age to be the father and grandfather of the 4 other Smiths besides Dicy in the vicinity. He was born 1768 Sc/Nc? m Peggy before 1805, she was born 1770 in NC. The above mentioned Wm. B. Smith was their son. They also had a son named Etheldred Smith m. Matilda McDowell. they had a son William Bracken "Bratch" Smith b @ 1837 Pikesville, Bledsoe Co. he married Nancy Pullings @ 1863/4 in Bledsoe. She was b. @ 1842 TN. Eleanor had a daughter Nancy b.@ 1838. Think it could be the same Nancy d/o Eleanor? According to the 1860 Cumberland census Eleanor's children's ages were off a couple years from 1850 anyway. Mary was 22 in 1850 and 30 in 1860. Sarah was 25 in 1850 and 33 in 1860. Rebecca was 18 in 1850 and 26 in 1860. Agnes was 8 in 1850 and 16 in 1860. That cut the age difference between the two Nancy Pullings in half.


1840
In the 1840 Morgan Co.TN census the older Royal Price [70-80] is living 11 houses away from John 'O' Tabor and the younger Royal Price [30-40]is living 13 houses from John 'O' Tabor. Same page.

1840
1840 Morgan Co. TN Census entry is John 'O' Tabor.

The unusual occurence of Margaret being about 3 years older than John reflects nicely in this census
as setting them apart. Solomon Green, according to research, is the brother of Joanna who married Eli. Solomon Green was listed as the third dwelling from John 'O' in 1840 Morgan. Well another brother of Solomon, Alfred Green, ended up in 1850 St. Francois Co. MO census living next door to Lewis Murphy. Remember, 1860 John O is living next door to this same Lewis Murphy, who's family was out of Anderson Co.

All this proves that John 1 was in the vicinity of all of these people and had once done business with many of the people surrounding Peter Johnson and is most likely the father of John O Tabor.

These families are many pages apart, but it might be safe to assume that this Nancy 36 m. to Mark Cannon is a second marriage for both [age differences] and she probably was m. to this Agnes'[ 80 b. Va.] son and the Rebecca Tabor 2 is her daughter by that husband. This Nancy might be the wife of the missing Daniel [b. @1811], son of John and Agness. Probably Elizabeth Conley is also daughter of Agnes (Justice) 80 and John 1. Some names are popping up here that are interesting. Dicy Smith, for one. John O. and Margaret had a daughter named Celia Dicy. She went by Dicy in some of the census'[Margaret had a sister named Celia] Also,John O. and Margaret had a daughter named Rebecca. Some of their other children's names seem to have family significance: Another daughter, Nancy was named for Margeret's mother

1860 Cumberland Eleanor on page 504 B. Daniel Conley on Page 506 A.
1850 Bledsoe - Next door to Eleanor Pullen was MATILDA MANNING
1860 Cumberland - MATILDA MANNING #681 listed 6 houses before Eleanor and 6 houses after Daniel Conley Believe James Pullen is the husband of Eleanor.
1830 Bledsoe results in the close neighbor comparison to 1850 Bledsoe of Lowe, Galloway, Brown, Blalock, Smith ,Hall and Howard all on the same page with James Pullen. 1850 has same names within a few pages of Elenore and Conleys.
1830 #'s do not agree with known children of Eleanor's. They show 00001-001. It is possible that James and Eleanor had not married at this time. If he is not her husband, then he must be a relative because of the neighbor relationship.
1840 White has Thomas Pullings 21001-01001. He is too young to be a husband of Eleanor's, but also probably a relative. I believe through proximity we have placed Eleanor living near the Conleys for close to 20 years [ 1850's Bledsoe, 1860 Cumberland and possibly through James Pullen from sometime in the 1830's]. There is an Andrew Pullings who served in the Civil War out of , I believe Greene Co., TN Do not know if this is the Andrew listed in her home in the 1850 census. I believe we are close enough to attach her to the other known children of John and Agnes. I believe the fact that she named her youngest daughter Agnes is further proof of her being part of this family. [Bless her heart, none of the the other known children used that name]. I believe the fact that Dicy Smith named a daughter Eleanor is another tie linking her to the John/Agness family. I also believe the fact that John and Margaret named a daughter Celia Dicy is significant.

Also, those young children in 1850 White living with Wm the chairmaker, I think they might be gchildren. I think that because if the other older children are his as according to the ages of his children on the1830 census, then he already had children by the names of James, William and John. These could possibly be the children of the deceased[?] Daniel. When his wife, Nancy, remarried, she only took the girl, Rebecca to live with her.

John O. and Andy Tabor are probably sons of Eli L. Tabor.
John O. Tabor of Ozark and Howell Co, MO. married Mary Permelia Green(could she have been part of the Green family that Eli's wife Joanna was thought to have been from?) in Ozark Co, MO in 1847. By 1856, John and Mary were living in Howell Co, MO near Olden, MO. In 1858, John was killed by Mary's twin brother, Pleasant Thomas Green because of John's treatment of Mary.Mary moved back to Ozark Co, MO and she and her children were listed in Ozark Co 1860 fed census. She was not in the 1870 MO state census index and I have not been able to locate her or any of her children. The names of her children were: Allie A, Martha J, James F, Eli S, Lillie S, and Polly A.

1855
Cumberland Co TN was formed from parts of White, Bledsoe, Fentriss, Rhea, Morgan snd Putnam Counties. The area where the Tabor families lived was probably right across the county lines from each other in White and Bledsoe Co's. This is where the town of Crossville is located now, near the Obed River. In both 1850 Bledsoe and 1860 Cumberland, Eleanor Pulling and Elizabeth Conley had many of the same neighbors. We believe they were in the same location and the county boundaries changed. We believe the same is true for William Tabor when he was listed in 1850 White Co. and the 1860 Cumberland Co. census.
The Tabor community is about 2-3 miles north of I-40 in Cumberland Co. (5-6 miles north of Crossville). Also remember Cumberland Co. was not formed until 1855-56. Therefore, earlier records may be found in neighboring counties. Part of that area was Morgan County before that time. Cumberland Co TN near Crossville
The area that I described has always been considered the "Tabor" community. I understand that is the area where the oldest Tabors first lived in this area. There is no factory there today. I do remember some of my folks buying chairs from this family though. You may find some records in White Co. Our county was made up of Bledsoe, White, and Morgan counties at one time.

Well, of course Sally is a nickname for Sarah. Age is off about 3 years or so but people often lie about their age. Living in the house was Eleander Pulling 55 N.C., Mary A. 30 TN., Rebecca 26 TN., and Agnes B. 16 TN.Think it could be possible that this Eleander/Alcy Tabor married a Pulling.Eleander Pullings was insane in 1860 Cumberland. Guess that is why Sarah Butler was listed as head of household.

The household numbers seem to indicate that Eli live pretty far frrom William's family, but if the census taker went up one side of the road and down the next, instead of crossing the road for each household (which seems like a lot of extra walking, but who knows?), then they might have lived fairly close to each other.

Most people seem to think that William B., James M and John are the sons of Eli L. Tabor. Many believe that William S, our original chairmaker is the son of William and Susannah but he died in 1856. One researcher with pretty extensive Cumberland Co. research cites an 1830 Miss. census entry for him. I'm pretty sure that the 1830 White Co. census entry we have found is this William S. In 1830, he has males that would be the same age groups as these adult males we find listed side by side with him in 1850 White, 1860 and 70 Cumberland. Eli is in 1830 Morgan,1840 Bledsoe , 1850 Morgan and 1860 and 70 Cumberland, but never listed as anywhere adjacent to this William S, William B., James M.and John, and never does he claim to be a chairmaker.




GA Tabors
John Tabor, s/o John & Elizabeth Sharpe Tabor has been linked to 2 other wives in GA. He is also linked to a will that was filed in 1825 and proved in 1832 in Franklin Co GA. Because of this will, he is often accredited with the wrong children.

1785
John Tabor made a marriage BOND in Richmon County, Georgia on 11 May 1785 to Elizabeth Parker. Copy in State Archives in Atlanta. I believe that this is the John whose will was proved in 1832 in Franklin Co Ga. His wife was still alive at the writing of this will in 1825 and her name was Elizabeth. Agness Justice Tabor was still alive in 1850.
ELIZABETH PARKER b: Abt. 1765 Married John Tabor 17 May 1785 in North Carolina

1830
John H. Tayber is in Monroe Co, TN. in 1830 page 139.
2 m. under 5, 1 m.5-10, 1m 30-40.
1f under 5, 1 f.5-10, 2 f 15-20, and 1 f 30-40.
This looks like a family with 2 females 15-20 that look like they are living with this family, but maybe not their own. This John is the son of the John and Elizabeth who lived in Franklin Co GA There is another John H. s/o John and Dorcas Stovall Tabor who was b in 1810 or so, he would have been @ 20 not 30
at this time.

1832
Georgia, Franklin Co Will of John Tabor In the name of God, Amen, I John Tabor of the County of Franklin,State of Georgia, Revoking all others, appoint this to be my last will.and testament. I give to my son John H Tabor a Negro girl named,Nance, and to William Tabor a Negro girl named Hannah, for which he has paid back $100- to make he equal with the rest. To Isaac Tabor I give one Negro girl named Mary for which he paid back $54 to make he equal to lesser ones. To Susannah Tabor I give a Negro girl named Silva .To James Tabor I give a Negro girl named Retha and $50 at the division of the property at my wife's death. To Francis A Tabor I give a Negro boy Peter and a girl named Vina and their mother at my wifes death and also the land and premises whereon they dwell at my wifes death I also give to my wife, Elizabeth Tabor, a Negro man named Lott, and a Negro woman named Rachel, and a girl named Milly, and another by the name of Rose, with all my lands, goods, and Chattels, after the payment of my lawful debts, with all the profits arising therefrom. I, also ,wish my executors to pay strick attention towards Lott, that he does his duty in taking care of his Mistress, which, if he not, hire him at the highest bidder, and the funds to his Mistress, and at my wifes death, I wish all that are not disposed of to be sold and equally divided amongst the legatees. I also authorize my executors to sell my land that I am possessed of or may be in the ensuing lottery in order to procure a proper residence for her during her natural life. I appoint John H Tabor and Isaac Tabor and William Tabor to be my Executors of this my last will and testament Witness my hand and seal November 11th 1825) John Tabor {seal} [Signed, sealed and delivered by the said ) Testator as for is last-will and testament ) In the presence of us Josiah Hix Abraham Trail Court of Ordinary January Term 1832 Personally, appeared in court, Josiah Hix, who being duly sworn, deposeth and saith that he saw the within named John Tabor, sign and seal the within will for the purposes therein mentioned, when in his proper mind; and that the depondent subscribed the same as a witness and saw Abraham Trail do so likewise Sworn and subscribed in Open court 2 Jan 1832 Thos King CCO Josiah Hix Recorded 4 day of Jan 1832
[ Mentions wife: Elizabeth, Sons: John H., William, Isaac, James, and Francis A., Daughter: Susannah.]
This John Tabor's wife, Elizabeth was alive in 1825 when the will was filed so this can't be John, s/o John and Elizabeth Sharpe Tabor, because divorce was very uncommon in those days and Agnes was on the 1850 census'(see Bledsoe and White Co's TN)

1840 Franklin Co GA census
Dist.263 p327 is
John Taber 70-80 and Female 70-80. Only people in the household.
In Dist.267 p.315 are
John Tabor 10001-00001,
Francis A. Taber 000001-10001,
Margaret Tabor 000001-0101101
I don't know who either John is but @ 5 spaces down from the older one, in dist. 263, on the census is a Stovall. The younger John is too young to have been the John H. in the Monroe Co TN census of 1830. Francis A. is the brother of that John. I don't know who Margaret is.



There was another John Tabor who married Dorcas Stovall. The following info comes fron his decendants:

John TABOR b. abt. 1793 in PA??. Died before 1821 in GA?? he married Anne Dorcas STOVALL abt. 1809 maybe in NC or GA. They had two boys William H. b. 1810 in Elbert Co., GA and John H. b. 1813 prob. in Elbert Co., GA. John TABOR died before 1821 when his widow Dorcas TABOR drew for herself and orphans of John TABOR in the 1821 Land Lottery.
I have found that the family was awarded land in Houston Co., GA but it shortly after became a part of Bibb Co., GA.
A newspaper article has come to my attention from another lister that says William H. and John H. his brother wrote to the Governor of GA in 1869 asking if they were able to still claim the land. Evidentially Dorcas had the land examined before she left for AL and found it worthless. They supposedly were givin the land but I could find no record in Houston or Bibb County, GA to corroborate the story.
After the death of John TABOR, Dorcas and her son's migrated to Morgan Co., AL where she later married her cousin Patrick Henry STOVALL. She made a deed of gift to her son's of some personal items and slaves before she married. Her brother Peter STOVALL was William H. and John H. TABOR's guardian.
William H. TABOR migrated to Hardeman Co., TN and married Louisa T. HULLUM there in 1831. He lived in Marshall Co., MS in 1840 & 1850 then migrated to Tishamingo Co., MS in 1860 and then Lee Co., MS in 1870. He was living in Prentiss Co., MS in 1880.
John H. TABOR married in Lawrence Co., AL to Nancy O. GIBSON in 1834. They also migrated to Marshall Co., MS by 1840. They were still living there in 1870.In 1833 he was age 22 living in Morgan/Lawrence Co., AL, by 1840 he was in Marshall Co., MS.

Sherry, Yep, everyone and their dog has someone attached to John TABOR md. Agnes JUSTICE. I can definately rule out my John TABOR. I don't know a whole lot about him, but I know he died before 1821 as his widow Dorcas was drawing for herself and as next friend to the orphan's of John TABOR in the 1820 Georgia Land Lottery. She then re-married to her cousin Patrick Henry STOVALL 14 Sep 1827 in Morgan Co., AL. Her borther Peter STOVALL was guardian of William H. and John H. TABOR. Dorcas went to MS where her husband died then she went on to TX and died shortly after arriving here in 1854-55 in Burleson Co., TX. As for my John being born in PA, I finally found his son William H. in the 1880 Census living with a daughter and he stated his father was born in PA and mother in GA. I do know the census aren't always the gospel truth but I have not been able to connect my John to any of the VA TABOR's. There is also speculation that my John is the son of William TABOR and Susannah TUBB but their son John, according to William's rev war pension record, was still living in the 1850's. I have documentation for all of this. As far as John TABOR md. Elizabeth PARKER in Richmond Co., GA, I tried earlier to connect my John to that family but his son John H. married and died in Madison, AL. Some of the other TABORS in Franklin Co., GA, Addkinson, Aquilla went to Lafayette Co., MS. As far as I have been able to discern, this John is not the same John who married Agnes JUSTICE and I don't knw where or if he fit's into the VA TABORS.
Donnadmerrill3@mindspring.com

John Tabor and Adkinson probably were brothers. Adkinson and Elizabeth (John's wife) drew land together. Look in 1830 Federal Census and Land books.
Harold Tabor
P.S. John is my 3rd greatgrandfather. I am looking for information on John TABOR of Franklin County. His father was probably named James Tabor. According to my information, he married Elizabeth PARKER (probably in Richmond Co.) and they lived in Franklin. They had the following children: John H., William, Isaac, James, Francis W., and Susannah.
John H., the eldest son, married Alice BAYLISS. They removed to Rhea Co., TN, among other places. Their son (one of ten children) John B. was my great-great grandfather. He married Melcina TAYLOR.

This is the info on John s/o William and Susannah Tubb from off the internet..Their children are as follows:
John TABOR was born 18 Apr 1783 in Rutherford Co., NC.
He married Ann Dorcas STOVALL 1806, daughter of Drury
STOVALL and Anne STONE. She was born 2 Jan 1792 in Wilkes Co, GA,
and died 1820-1853. no one
knows which children are from which marriage.
Children of John TABOR in GA:
Isaac TABOR
James TABOR
William H. TABOR
John H. TABOR
Francis A TABOR
Susannah TABOR
This is erroneous because the John Tabor who wrote the will and named the above children, was still married to Elizabeth at his death.

Re: Adkisson Tabor Sr. of Madison Co., GA (1782-1847)

Does anyone have information about my ancestor, Adkisson (sometimes Adkerson) Tabor Sr. of Madison County, Georgia? He was born in North Carolina in 1782 and moved to Columbia Co., GA, probably with brothers, sometime before the turn of the century. In his history of Madison County, Paul Tabor speculates based on meager circumstantial evidence that Adkisson Tabor, John Tabor (husband of Elizabeth Parker), Hezekiah Tabor, and Zachariah Tabor were sons of James Tabor of Rutherford Co., North Carolina. Zachariah, John Tabor Jr. and Adkisson Tabor moved to Franklin Co., GA around 1806, and Adkisson married Elizabeth Ann King, the oldest daughter of Benjamin and Jane King, in Madison Co., in 1808. In 1831, the family moved to nearby Madison Co., GA.

Adkisson Sr. acquired land in Georgia in the lotteries of 1805 and 1821, and purchased public land in Alabama (1827) and in Northern Mississippi (1843). He was a tobacco farmer who never owned more than ten slaves. Adkisson and Elizabeth Tabor had seven children, three daughters and four sons. The three daughters and youngest son (Adkisson Jr.) remained in Georgia, while the three oldest sons moved first to Lafayette County, Mississippi, then on to other points in Mississippi and Louisiana. One son, Aquilla Tabor (my ancestor), remained in Lafayette Co. Mississippi. Adkisson Sr. died in the fall of 1847 in Madison Co., and a few years later his widow Elizabeth King Tabor and youngest son Adkisson Tabor Jr. moved to Fort Lamar in Madison County. If anyone has any information about this family, I would like to hear from you.

Rutherford/Cannon Co TN John Tabor
Some researchers believe that John Tabor of Rutherford/Cannon Co's TN was the son of John and Agness and that he was married to Eunice Ballard. The following info proves that that John Tabor was old enough to have 2 children between 10-16 in 1820 and john, s/o John and Agness was b in 1803[some reserchers think @ 1805]

1820 Rutherford Co Census
John Taber 2 1 001-0101. Males 2 un10, 1 m 10-16, 0 16-18, 0 16-26, 1 26-45. Females 0 0-10, 1 10-16, 0 16 -26, 1 26-45. So this John Taber was in Rutherford Co., Tn. by 1820. Married second time there in 1824. Neighbors in 1830 Rutherford were a lot the same as 1840 Cannon. Probably in the same area from 1820 or before.

1824 Rutherford Co TN:
Tennessee Rutherford County: Bullard /Tabour, Unice John
Spouse:Bullard, Unice > Tabour, John Marriage Date:29 Jul 1824

Elizabeth Spry in Cannon Co. would have been m. 0-5, Nathan Tabor b. @1823 m. Nancy Lasiter would have been 1 m. 5-10. leaves 1 m 10-15 unaccounted for. Unicy Phillipse was 18 in 1840 8 in 1830 or 1 f. 5-10. I guess John probably had 1 son by 1st wife. Nathan b. @ 1823 might actually be 1824ish and be Eunices, or he might be 1823 ish and be what caused the death of wife#1. same page John Bullard 0000000001-0 1 m.70-80 Daniel Bullard 00001-00001

Nathan C, Tabor 28 TN
Nancy A 22 TN
Elizabeth 4 TN
Unicy 2 TN
We get 3 completely different ages between 1840-60. 1860 did say 96 and Eunice 80. the 1840 listing made him 50 to 60 or b.bet. 1780-90. The 1850 gave b. date as 1782 .So we have 2 placing him 1780s. Lets go with that, Maybe by 1860 neither one of them remembered how old they were.

1860 Cannon Co TN census
John Taber 96 - SC
Eunice 80 - SC

So, both of John's, [s/o John and Elizabeth Sharpe Tabor] other possible marriages are shown to have been other John Tabors. The only record that we have found that is not accounted for is the 1840 census of Franklin Co GA - dist 263. I haven't been able to figure out who the 2 Tabor's [ between 70-80] were. John and Agness are unaccounted for in 1830-40,.

Does anyone know if Elijah Lewis Tabor "Eli" b. July 01, 1791 in Rutherford County, NC d. October 22, 1883 B.in Raines Cemetery, Cuumberland County, Tn. went to Missouri for a period of time with his son Andrew. There is an Eli mentioned in Taney County Missouri at this time. I cannot find Eli in the Morgan County, Tn. census of 1840 or in the Taney County, Missouri Census of 1840. He is in Morgan County in the 1830 & 1850 census. In 1839 he sold his land to Royal Price so I'm wondering where he was in 1840?

Can anyone tell me the relationship between William Tabor known as "Sizzlebum Bill" who according to Bullard and Krechniak in CUMBERLAND COUNTY'S FIRST ONE HUNDRED YEARS came to the Cumberland mtn. region of Tn 1in 1806 and Elijah Lewis Tabor who the authors also say came in 1806 but I don't think came until much later. Who was "Sizzlebum Bill's parents?

Sizzlebum Bill was John and Elizabeth Sharpe Tabors oldest son(Eli's brother). He was m to Susannah Tubb and he was in the Rev War (as was John who m Agness) which is where he got his nickname. That book on Cumberland Co was incorrect in many ways - first, Cumberland Co wasnt formed until 1855, so we are talking about Bledsoe and White Co. William either bought land there in 1808 or was given it as a land grant for his service in the Rev:
Tabor, William [Wh] 1808, 200a, G dist, bk A, p. 468 g#726
Tabor, William [ Wh] 1808, 200 a, MTN dist, bk 4, p 100, g# 726
Tabor, William [Wh] 1809, 200 a, G dist, bk B, p 504, g#967
Tabor, William [Wh] 1809, 200a, MTN dist, bk 4, p265, g#967

He sold it and moved to MS where he lived the rest of his life.

I never thought that "Sizzlebum Bill" was the William that was Eli's brother. I guess I was misled because the Bullard and Krechniak book listed "Sizzlebum Bill's wife as Martha and I knew Eli's brother William's wife was Susannah Tubb. Also I thought that William was in Fanklin County at that time. Guess he had land grants in two different spots. Do you know how he got the nickname "Sizzlebum Bill" That should be interesting and also do you think Eli still in Rutherford County in 1820. The first Tennesee Census record I have of him is 1830 in Morgan County. Thanks, Jewel

I went back thru my notes and found that both Wm (m Susanna) and their son, Wm Jr (m Martha Lovelace)were referred to as Sizzlebum Bill. I don't know which is correct.

The first record that I found for Eli is:
1829
Eli Tabor had 50 acres surveyed 11/2/1829 Royal Price and James Thompson were the SCC.
James G. Thompson b.1/28/1803 Rutherford Co., N. C. is the son of William Thompson and
Mary Tabor. Royal Price was married to a Green.

So you believe that Bullard and Krechniak are wrong when they list William Jr. (Son of William & Susannah) wives as (1) Mary A.______ and (2) Polly Greer. Page 285 CUMBERLAND COUNTY'S FIRST HUNDRED DAYS. Instaed his wife was Martha Lovelace. I noticed that you did not have William married to Susannah living in White County in your notes. Perhaps you have discovered that since. Do you think he ever lived in Franklin County or do you think this was a different William.

I don't know if the Wm from White Co was Wm & Sue or not and I never saw any records of his living in Dickerson, Davidson, Franklin Co's as reported in other people's work.
I know that J m A was reported to have had 3 wives and lived in GA also, but found that there were actually @ 5 John's living around at the same time.It was also suggested that my J was married to Eunice Bullard and lived in Rutherford Co TN - but that also proved to have been another John. There is a whole family of Tabors descended from John b 1708 who m Mary Fowler in VA, and nothing is known of his descendants - I'm sure they are all mixed up in there somewhere and there must have been some Wm's.

Is the John Tabor that married Agness Justice who was the brother of William that was married to Susannah Tubb in the Revolutionary War? If so what battles was he in? Was he in the same battles that William Tabor was in?
