Descendants of Nathaniel Harper of Davidson Co., Tennessee
I have been unable to find out much about this Harper family. Nathaniel Harper, my g-g-grandfather, has been as far back that I have been able to trace the family. Census records indicate that he was born in Virginia. His wife was Susan Mullins of Cannon Co., Tennessee, although she may have been his second wife. Susan was school teacher and had been previously married to Thomas Nokes Jr. Nathaniel and Susan appear to have had only one child, James Thomas Harper, who was the father of Jessie Kidder Harper my grandmother. Susan appears to have had five children by her first husband, Thomas Nokes.
I would be interested in hearing from others who may know something about this family and can provide information on Nathaniel's ancestry.
