Have not come across any Roberts yet but I'll keep a lookout. Both mine and my wife's families hail from Pulaski and the surrounding counties.

Surnames: Parton/Partin, Woodall, Trimble, Henderson, Tarter, Casada and Hughes.

I have a hypothesis that Dennis’s parents were William Roberts and Polly Turpin...  and that Polly Turpin is actually a Tarter.  She shows up near a number of Roberts/Tarters in records, Chrisley Tarter witnessed the wedding of William and Polly, Chrisley Tarter entered tax obligations for William Roberts, and Tarters purchased much of William Roberts property when it was auctioned after his passing in 1836.  Also... in the 1840 census for Polly Roberts, the name “Robert Sayers” was written, scratched out, and replaced with “Polly Roberts”. (Robert Sayers was married to a “Polly Tarter”).

I have a lot of source images uploaded on the Dennis/Polly/William profiles for tax records, I&A, and settlement that include these Tarter connections... if any of it is helpful or interesting in your own search.


David Trimble and Nancy Elizabeth Tarter (Tarter-197) are my 4th GGP. Nancy Tarter has listed a half-sister Polly Tarter but I believe she was born before 1800 so it may not be the same listed in the 1840 census.

The Tarter's, Sayer's, Trimble's, Parton's, and Weddle's are thick in and around Nancy, Ky which is western part of Pulaski County; they were also some of the first pioneers and settlers of Kentucky, having come through across the Wilderness Road and across the Cumberland Gap..  

You might contact [[David Tarter | Tarter-24]], he's seems to have done quite a bit of research on the Tarter's.
