Tawwater Roots

Well here goes:

It is believed that my line is descended from Peter Durrwachter through his son Johan George Thuerwaechter who came to America from Freckenfeld, Germany circa 1751 with brother Johan Earhardt. I have yet to locate documented proof of this connection.

What we know our line runs as follows: John Tarwater (born 1792 TN according to 1850 Licoln Co., TN Census or 1796 SC according to 1860 Franklin Co., TN Census), to Noah Martin Tarwater, to John Wesley Tawwaters, to William Charley Tawwater, to Clifford Jessie Tawwater who was my greatgrandfather.

I am looking for futher information on John Tarwater (b. 1792 or 1796). Thanks a million.
