Tabor's are an old family of Izard County.
I can provide some links.
Lawerance County AR was the origional county.
In addition to Izard county, you can find most of your information in the following counties: Baxter, Marion, and Boone. Searcy county sometimes.
If I were you focus your initial search on Marion, Baxter and Izard.
See attached links.
The 1850 census has Elijah Tabor age 5.
You will have to scroll down. I couldn't get the "find" function to work on that page.

An earlier reference comes from SC. Turnbo's tales of the Ozarks.
Another mention of Dr. Cowdrey by S. C. Turnbo

One of the pioneer settlers of Marion County Ark. was John H. TABOR who died several years ago. Mr. TABOR was a son of Elijah and Sarah (Green) TABOR and was born in Rutherford County North Carolina December the 11th 1809. He came with his parents to the mouth of Big North Fork on White River in 1826. They and others pushed a keel boat all the way up White River. His parents died many years ago and both lie buried on East Sugar Loaf Creek on what was once known as the Akins land."The year I came to mouth of Big North Fork" said. Mr. TABOR , "I made a crop with Jack HURST and ‘Snappin’ Bill WOODS on the river near the mouth of Big North Fork. In 1830 I made a crop where Buffalo City now stands just above the mouth of Buffalo. I remember that soon after our arrival at the mouth of Big North Fork in 1826 a band of Indians came there one day with several elksheads and horns. The length of the horns were astonishing for by standing them on the points a man of ordinary height could pass under the heads without stooping. There were plenty of Buffalo along White River then, and great numbers of buffalo bones and horns were found all over the country. I have lived at various places in Marion County until I took up my final location on Crooked Creek some two miles below Powell. I bought this claim from an Indian of the name of Little Pumpkin in 1836. This Indian had settled this land two years previous. I built a small log cabin on the claim during the same year
I bought it. Some three or four years thereafter I built another log house near a fine spring of water on this same land and removed the cabin that I built in 1836 and attached it to this last house and the logs are In a good state of preservation to the present day. I got acquainted with Dr. COWDREY in 1829 and he was living in Batesville then. I recollect when de ARMOND shot and wounded John P. HOUSTON brother to the governor Sam HOUSTON of Texas fame, a runner was sent to Batesville for Dr. COWDREY and he came and attended on HOUSTON until he recovered from the wound. HOUSTON was at the mouth of Big North Fork when he and de ARMOND got into trouble and was shot. Dr. COWDREY was the only physician then on White River and came to Yellville in 1835. COWDREY was one among the well educated and was a skillful physician and surgeon.
