lilmac7 has been a Family Tree Circles member since Dec 2006. is researching the following names: CROSS, PARRISH, NELLER and 2 other(s).
I am looking for any information on a man named JG Tarver from Texas. I have found a ring at an antique store with his name on it, and the inscription, JG Tarver the Gaint Texas. It is very large in diameter and is made from a rough metal. I am thinking it was worn by a boxer, or wrestler. It does not have a date on it but appears to be old. If any one out there can help me with my search please contact me. thank you.
Dear lilmac7, Hi there. With a bit of ingenuity of searching the web, I found this website which not only has a photograph of the ring you may have, but also a photograph of the man. He was supposed to have been a giant reaching a height of 8ft4in!!!

And surely the ring should belong in a Museum or some such place.
Also, if you click on TARVER at the bottom of your journal, I've created a surname wiki page. Maybe you should post a message at the TARVER Family Genealogy Forum. I would.

My mother (who is 84) has one of the rings as mentioned above. Her father bought it for $1.00 when he saw this giant when he was in the Army during World War I, 1919 or after. I don't know where he saw him, but he was with a bunch of soldiers. I know that my grandfather went to France on a ship during his time in the service but that is all I know.
