Jacob Tarr, courtesy of Robert Stevenson-Wedding
     Jacob Tarr was born in 1802 in "eastern" Pennsylvania.1,2,4 He was the son of George Tarr and Barbara (?)3 He married Barbara Noel, daughter of Thomas Noel and Mary Magdalena Noel.5,6,7 He died in Cherrytree Township, Venango County, on 12 June 1881 in his 80th year, "one of the pioneers of Cherrytree Township."1,2 He and Barbara Noel were buried in Cherrytree Presbyterian Cemetery, Cherrytree Township, Venango County.8
     Jacob Tarr and Barbara Tarr lived in Cherrytree Township, Venango County, Pennsylvania, where Jacob was a farmer and land speculator.9,10,11,12 The Tarrs first farmed in Cherrytree Township on land formerly belonging to Jacob's father, just west of Cherrytree Village. Here Jacob was taxed for 200 acres in 1824 and 1825 and for 214 acres from 1826 through 1828.13,14 He bought 150 acres in Cherrytree Township from his parents George Tarr and Barbara for $50 on 23 May 1829. This land was part of a larger tract on which George Tarr had settled over twenty years earlier and bounded on the north by the farm they sold his brother Martin a month earlier.15 Between 1830 and 1835 Jacob was taxed in Cherrytree Township for 167 acres and from 1836 through 1844 for 150 acres.16,14 He purchased 140 acres and 10 perches in Oakland Township, Venango County, on 15 February 1855 from William R., George W., John F. , and James B. Stewart for $420. This property was just southwest of the old farm of Jacob's father and the middle part of a larger tract patented to Elijah Stewart of Cherrytree Township, but settled by George Cain and surveyed 19 April 1848 for George W. Tarr at the request of William R. and James B. Stewart.17
     Jacob Tarr and his son George Andrew Walter Tarr purchased 56 acres and 102 perches on 30 April 1860 from Charles C. Gaskill and wife Sarah C. of Coopers Point, Camden County, New Jersey for $113. The property bordered lands of James Gibson, Robert Ward, John Blood, and John Rynd and was part of Holland Land Company Tract 254 which became vested in Gaskill and was a portion of a larger tract surveyed to Jacob Tarr, a part of which was conveyed to Robert Ward.18 He purchased 4 acres and 105 perches in Cherrytree Township on 7 July 1859 from William C. Reynolds for $20. This land abutted Josiah Hamilton, WIlliam C. Reynolds, and George W. Tarr and was part of a larger tract conveyed to Reynolds by John Reynolds and his wife of Meadville on 28 May 1838.19 He and Barbara Noel sold this property in Cherrytree Township on 20 September 1864 to his nephew George W.

The payment was quite modest: a dollar now, twenty dollars by 1 April and thirty dollars by 1 June.22 He and son Isaac Tarr, with their wives Barbara and Catherine sold 50 acres and 112 perches of the Oakland Township farm on 2 January 1865 to George Davis of New York City for $2700.

The property was on the headwaters of Kain's Run and abutted the west line of Mark Ward, Jacob Tarr, land formerly Deits's, and Daniel Tarr and was part of the larger tract conveyed to Jacob by George W. Tarr.24 He and his wife Barbara sold 27 acres, abutting the Franklin Road, lands of Ward and Company, Lewis Renninger and Jef Tarr, Brewer and Loomis, and of Jacob Tarr in Oakland Township to their son Isaac Tarr for $1200 on 2 September 1865.25 He sold the remaining 60 acres and 47 perches of their farm in Oakland Township on 21 January 1867 to Margaret Ann Bennyhoof of Cherrytree Township for $1700. The property was described as bounded by land of Daniel Tarr, land formerly Deets's, of Brown and Loomis, of Isaac Tarr, and formerly Ward's.26 He bought 80 perches in Cherrytree Township from Peter Bennehoff and his wife Catherine name written as Benneyhoff for $2000 on 2 September 1865. This property abutted land of Samuel M. Irwin Jr. and Peter "Benninghoff" (formerly A. J. McClintock) and the Franklin Road.27 He purchased an additional acre and 71 8/10 perches in Cherrytree Township on 11 March 1867 from Charles Krantz and his wife Rachel for $180. The land was bounded by W. P. McClintock, the Franklin Raod, John Blood, and Richard Irwin and part of a larger track Krantz had purchased from George Tarr Jr. in 1864.28 He bought 28 more perches from Peter Bennehoff and his wife Catherine for $90 on 2 October 1867. This land was along the Bennehoff land, land of Fiddler V. Irwin, and the Franklin Road.29 Barbara Noel bought 5 acres in Oakland Township from Peter Bennehoff and his wife Catherine for $300 on 27 November 1868. The land abutted Samuel Tarr, George Tarr, and George W. Tarr and originally was part of the large tract conveyed to George Tarr by Commonwealth patent in 1840 and which he bequeathed to son George by his will.

     George Andrew Walter Tarr and his father Jacob Tarr purchased 56 acres and 102 perches on 30 April 1860 from Charles C. Gaskill and wife Sarah C. of Coopers Point, Camden County, New Jersey for $113. The property bordered lands of James Gibson, Robert Ward, John Blood, and John Rynd and was part of Holland Land Company Tract 254 which became vested in Gaskill and was a portion of a larger tract surveyed to Jacob Tarr, a part of which was conveyed to Robert Ward.6 He and Jacob Tarr partitioned the tract into two equal parts (each 28 acres 51 perches) by and aggreement of 12 April 1862.7 No record of the survey to Jacob has been located, but prior to the purchase he evidently had or believed he had some claim to the land, for on 5 March 1860 he and son George A. W. Tarr entered into an agreement for William Packer to have exclusive right to dig for oil on the property. The payment was quite modest: a dollar now, twenty dollars by 1 April and thirty dollars by 1 June.8
