Grover was born May 16, 1884 near Kirby Missouri, the twin brother to Thomas Hendrix Tarbet, to John W. and Nancy Kenning, Tarbet.

He also worked in his fathers merchantile store until the family moved to Rule Texas, in 1900. During the trip to Texas Grover became ill, and stayed a while with his uncle Sam Kenning, in Denton, Co. Texas.

On Sept 25, 1905 he married Mattie Armilda "Millie" Lawson in Aubrey, Texas.
