Deed Bk 7 p 304/5 notes that Sherwood Grimsley received land Edgecombe Co 28 Oct 1754 and 12 Nov 1754 from Earl of Granville.

Dated 15 Sep 1765 of Henry Harper names a son as Samuel. WKS Bk 10 p 55 Halifax Co. Deed book 8, p 78 refers to transaction by Jacob Harper to Isaac Harper in presence of Samuel Harper dated 16 Feb 1762 suggesting Samuel 21 by then. WKS Bk 10 p 56 Deed Bk 7 p 174 lists sale of property 100 ac. by Sherwood Grimsley to Samuel Harper dated 17 Sep 1760 suggesting Samuel 21 by then. WKS Bk 10 p 108 NC Marriages lists Samuel as father of John in marriage to Lucy Morris dated 13 Jun 1783. If father and son both 21 at time of marriage this would make Samuel born at least 1740 or 1739.

PFS Bk 4 p 45 Abstracts of Granville Grantees Halifax Co, NC Deed Bk 8 p. 24, James Harper of Halifax Co 10 Dec 1760, 139 ac. This implies James Harper at least 21 years old at this time. James Harper is deceased at time of father, Henry Harper, will dated Sep 1765 listing James with three children. This suggests James may have been born approx. 1738. WKS Bk 11 p 69; Essex Co., VA Records 1717-1722 p 286-7 lists Henry Harper and Edward Harper as witnesses to Deed of sale 20 Mar 1721, thus linking them together for first time found. Also indicates Henry Harper at least 21 by date listed, suggesting his birth before Mar. 1700. "Benjamin Mathews of Essex Co., to Richard Tyler of same, for 2400 pounds of tobacco, 20 ac., part of the dividend of land wh ereon the said Benjamin Mathews now dwells...line of Samuel Perry...down the said branch to the main swamp...to the land of James Turner...s./ Benjamin Mathews.

Notes for Richard HARPER: In the early days of Claiborne Co., there were two young men named Reuben Harper who served in the War of 1812, in different companies, and who owned land in Claiborne Co. each leaving at different times during the 1820's. It was known that Richard Harper, a Revolutionary War soldier from Orange Co., NC, who settled in Claiborne Co. in its very first years, was the father a son Reuben Harper, but which of the above was his son? One Reuben Harper ended up in Carroll Co., Mo, where he d in 1870. The other ended up in Logan Co. AK, where he d. in 1880.

Mary Hansard describes the Richard Harper of Claiborne Co. and his family; Richard Harper a brother of Willis Harper, owned and lived on a farm five miles west of Tazewell, the same that was owned by E. M. Redmond. He was old in my earliest recollection. He had the misfortune of losing one of his legs, having it amputated near the knee. I always manifested a great sympathy for him and called him Uncle. I don't remember his wife's maiden name. I was a great favorite of his. He never failed to bring me a fine apple when he came to town. They raised only one child, according to Mary Hansard's recollection. Mrs. Fannie Breeding was a daughter of his. She owned and lived on a farm on the hill this side of Springdale, owned at present by Rev. Manis. She was a widow in my first acquaintance with her. Her husband died leaving her in careof four sons and one daughter: Tennessee, Leander, Prior, and Patterson; the daughters name was Malissa. Mr. Thomas Whitehead was cripple and lived on the Richard Harper farm. He was the county trustee. Some unknown burglars entered his house and robbed him of $1100 of the county's money. I do not remember the exact date, but suppose it to have happened some time in the forties. I do not know that they never knew who committed this theft. Mr. Tom Whitehead was a good citizen and much respected. This is all I remember of his history.

In the above affidavit Richard Harper states that his first child was born 1-21-1785. Evidently Richard has another child born earlier.

This family had eleven children, who I will take from the family bible record.

Thomas Wesley was the ninth, I believe that the following included in the Family Record records Manervey Stone, who married Drewrey Laffoon, December 9, 1850, as another of the family. This bible record says that it was bought on July 1, ????, from C. Powella Monday and E. A. Hurst, Paid him the money. T. W. Stone was still alive when he bought it so I wonder if it wasn't stolen.
