Children of Alexander and Florence Omega Bumpass

Narrative

     Alexander and Omega moved to Memphis and lived there from 1843 to 1849, when they returned to Davidson Co. and moved back to the old home place.

     Omega received 17 acres from the estate of her father, William Bumpass. John W. Rucker, husband of Tennessee Bumpass, and Greenville D. Grizzard, husband of Martha Bumbass, sued Alexander and Omega over the division of the land from William Bumpass' will. The case took from 1862 to 1871 to settle.

     On 1 February 1871, Alexander and Omega used the 17 acres to secure a loan of $100 to send one of their daughters, not identified, to St. Secelia Academy. The debt was paid on 9 September 1871 and the lien on the land released.

     On 1 January 1866, Alexander deeded 70 acres, more or less, from his share of the estate of his father, John Hill, to his eldest son, George W. Hill. This land is described as being north of the land of Alexander's mother, Margaret L. Hill. This is the only place that the middle initial of Margaret has been found. The deed was recorded 15 May 1866. George later moved to Shelby Co. and sold a part of this land, 3/4 acre, to a negro named Hiram Overton. George was back in Davidson Co. by the 1880 census.

     Alexander deeded land to his son John B. Hill on 21 February 1877.

She married second Nathaniel Harper circa 1852. Susan died of old age on 3 July 1886 in Nashville, Davidson Co., Tennessee, at age 74.7 She was interred on 4 July 1886 in City Cemetery in Nashville, Davidson Co., Tennessee.2

Child of Susan and Nathaniel Harper

Narrative

     Susan was also known as Susanah.

     Susan is probably the oldest daughter of Daniel Coleman Mullins and Oridema Lyle of the Short Mountain area of Cannon Co., Tennessee. There are several facts that when taken together leads me to this conclusion.

1. A tape interview with Bessie (Harper) Hulan, a granddaughter of Susan's, indicated that Susan was the oldest of a large family of about 10 children from the Short Mountain area of Cannon Co. This tape is in the possession of Dick Hulan.6

2. On the 1820 Warren Co., Tennessee census there is an unidentified female in the age range of less than 10. Susan was born circa 1813 based on census records and cemetery records or Aug 1811 based on a taped interview with Bessie Hulan, Susan's granddaughter. Cannon Co. was formed from Warren Co. and other in 1836. The Short Mountain area in Cannon Co. is near the border of Warren Co.

3. This female does not appear in the household of Daniel C. Mullins in the 1840 Cannon Co. Census. I have been unable to find Daniel in the 1830 Census. Susan married her first husband, Thomas Nokes, circa 1835.

4. Thomas Nokes died before June 1847. In the settlement of his estate on 28 June 1847, recorded in the June term of 1849, there are settlement payments to David Mullins and to John W. Mullins, both sons of Daniel Coleman Mullins and Oridema Lyle.8

5. In the 1850 Cannon Co. Census, Susan is listed as Susanah along with her Nokes children Martha, Mary, Sarah, and William and with a Milton Mullins and a Sarah Ann Mullins both of an age that they could possibly be unidentified children of Daniel and Oridema enumerated in the 1840 Cannon Co. Census. This, however, cannot be certain. They may be of some other relation.

6. In the 1860 Davidson Co. Census, Sarah is listed with her second husband, Nathaniel Harper, her Nokes children Mary and William, Sarah Ann Mullins from above, and an Ida Mullins age 70. This could possibly be Oridema.

7. In the scrapbook of Ida Vanetta (McMurray) Harper, wife of James Thomas Harper, was a newspaper article date October 28, 1868, from The Tyler Reporter (Texas) concerning the sudden death of Capt. W. H. Mullins of the law firm of Long & Mullins, by suicide. It states that he was from Tennessee and 34 years of age making him born in 1834. This matches another son of Daniel and Oridema, William H. Mullins born ca. 1834. This article must have been in the possession of James Thomas Harper who probably obtained from his mother Susan and was added to Ida's scrapbook sometime after their marriage in 1872. This would be a strong indication that W. H. Mullins was probably a brother of Susan's and an uncle of James Thomas.9

     These facts when taken together leads me to believe that Susan was the oldest daughter of Daniel Coleman Mullins and Oridema Lyle.

     In the Chancery Court of Cannon County are several entries in a case involving Medford Caffey and Susan Nokes, William B. Nokes, the children of Susan Nokes. To summarize the proceedings, they seem to center around the challenge of title rights to three parcels of land purchased by Thomas Nokes from Medford Caffey, one of which was sold by Thomas Nokes to David M. Jarret and the other two sold by Thomas Nokes to William B. Nokes. The final decision of the court was award of the titles to the said parcel of lands to David M. Jarret and William B. Nokes, and Medford Caffey ordered to pay the court costs.10

     There is an entry in the Cannon Co. Deed Books of the sale of 15 acres in the 6th District to Susan Harper, Administratrix of Thomas Nokes, 15 September 1856.11

     Susan had to take care of the Hickman children, George and Thomas, after the death of their mother, Susan's daughter Mary. Mary is said to lost her mind and died after her baby daughter was born.6 This baby daughter does not appear in any of the census with the family and perhaps was still-born or died shortly after death which may have contributed to Mary's mental condition.

     Susan was a school teacher for 45 years of her life. She taught in Woodbury, Cannon Co., Tennessee, and also in Nashville during the Civil War. She taught at a private school (pay school). At one time she was teaching in a little log cabin near Cedar Grove Church out of Lebanon. Her farm was just five miles out of Lebanon on Hunter's Farm Pike. It is said that she could sing like a lark and if she had been a man she would have been a preacher.6

     In Brown's History of Woodbury and Cannon County, Tenn. he describes a store operated by Bates and Hume that was located in part of a house "now occupied by Mrs. Quarles." He states "Many years agor Mrs. Harper taught school there, at which time (it being the custom of the country) she taught her pubils Geography by having them to sing the names of the Capitols of the States and the river upon which they were situated. Thus: "Maine, Augusta, on the Kennebeck River; Vermont, Montpelier, on the Onion River; New Hamptshire, Concord, on the Merrimac River," etc."12

Narrative

     In the 1873 Nashville City Directory, James T. Harper is listed as a carpenter with home at 449 S. Market.10 Thomas was a cabinetmaker and made custom architectural millwork in Nashville.11

     His father-in-law, William McMurray gave him his walnut schoolmaster desk. Thomas kept it in his cabinetry shop just off Church Street in downtown Nashville as an office desk. There was a fire in which Thomas lost a good bit of lumber and equipment. The desk was scorched but he saved it and just painted over the scorch marks. It eventually went to Bess and she gave it to her son Roy (Leroy). It currently is in the possession of Dick Hulan.12

     James' obituary:

     James Thomas Harper, 82, died Friday night at the home of his daughter, Mrs. G. H. Hulan and Mr. Hulan in Shelbyville. Despite his advance age, Mr. Harper was in fairly good health and active until his latest illness which was only a few days duration. He had suffered for some time with heart trouble which was the immediate cause of his death. Since the death of his wife about two years ago, Mr. Harper had made his home here with his daughter, Mrs. Hulan and another daughter, Mrs. George Davidson of Dickson.
     Mr. Harper was a resident of Nashville until a few years ago where he was a prominent contractor and architect. He was a devout member of the Church of Christ and was a elder for years in the activities of his church. Funeral services were conducted at home, Monday morning at 10:30 o'clock by the Rev. J. H. Hines, Minister of the Church of Christ, assisted by Rev. Charles C. Thompson, minister of the First Christian Church. Burial was in Willow Mount Cemetery.
     Survivors are five daughters, Mrs. Hulan; Mrs. Davidson; Mrs. W. R. Duke and Mrs. A. P. Oaks of Wichita Falls, Texas and Mrs. Carl Lawrence of Birmingham; two sons, F. O. Harper of Shelbyville and Roy Harper of Nashville.9
