Tabor, Robert (or William, 1067). 913, 914, 917. f/o Rebecca (Tabor) Scott Light. Robert fought in the War of 1812. During Indian problems, the family went to the fort. Sometimes a contagious fever sent them home to their log house. Robert had 4 fierce dogs and unerring skill with his old rifle, and the Indians stood in great awe of him. He came to Edgar County from Indiana, but stayed only a short time, returning to Indiana.

First husband of Josella (Parker) Talbott Garrett. f/o John Mason Talbott; Hugh A. Talbott; Henry Edward Parker Talbott. Augustine was a merchant in Kentucky, but his business failed when he loaned too much money that wasn't repaid. In 1826 they moved to Ohio where he taught in a log house on the subscription plan. He died at only 28, "a poor man."

Feeling the need for an education, he attended common schools in the winter, and worked as a carpenter in the summer. He was a carpenter in Indianapolis for 9 years. At age 25, in 1856, he began working as a contractor and builder. In 1862, he joined Co. G, 79th Indiana Infantry as corporal.

Whether Caroline was the first or second wife of Andrew's four wives cannot be determined. Caroline was included first. No name is given for the "mystery wife," only an oblique reference when the mother of Thomas is mentioned first, followed later by the "third" and fourth wives. It is possible that Caroline was Wife #1 and Wife #2 did not work out. The third wife was remembered by Andrew with great love and fondness for her care in raising him from age 8 until her death. Perhaps this was because the first stepmother may have been a disaster.
