Seeking information on Richard Taverner (variant spellings) of Loudon Co., VA. Might have relocated to Licking Co., Ohio by 1830.
He had one daughter, Nancy, who married Wm. Deputy and migrated to Wabash Co., Il in early 1800's.
Would appreciate any and all info on the Taverner family.

Mary, in checking my Taverner genealogy I do not find Israel the son of Jonathon.
The children I have listed for him are: Marie E, David Jonathon, Meoion, Jonah, Sarah Edith, Susan Alvina, Issac Brown, Frank Lycurgus, Mahlon Thornton.

I have 15 children listed for George and Tabitha, the 12th being Israel born 3 Mar. 1785. Could you give me more information on this Israel?

I am a descendant of Nancy Tave(r)ner b. May 24 1798 alledgedly the daughter of Richard Tave(r)ner and Susan?. She married William Deputy of Delaware on Nov 6 1817 perhaps in Wood Co. VA. They migrated from ther to Wabash Co IL in 1818.
She was thought to be the daughter of Richard Tavenner of Loudoun Co VA but I have not been able to prove this.
Any help would be appreciated.

I have looked through the information that I have and like Gwen, I see no Isreal in that family. Could you tell me who his mother was and what year he was born in? Maybe that will help.

There are 2 other Olive Tavenners:

Olive b. 4/24/1904 d. 7/1978 in Myrtle Creek, Douglas, County Oregon


Olive b. 1859 in Meigsville, Morgan County, OH

Seems like your Olive might be named after the second one. I believe my great-grandfather Charles was this Olive's brother. I am trying to sort out the several Morgan County Tavenners and would appreciate any info you find about Olive, Jonathan, Samuel, or Charles W. Tavenner.

Do you have any info which might help?
