Elijah Harp and Elizabeth Lewis were born and raised in Claiborne Co, TN. Elijah was born in 1811 and Elizabeth was born in 1810. They lived near Tazewell until around 1855 (tracking their movements by census, and children's ages.) In 1860, they had six daughters and one son: Talitha M. Harp 25,b. TN; Sarah Harp 22 - b TN; Frances Harp 18 - b TN; Robert L. Harp 16 - b TN; Narcissus 14 b- TN; Nancy J. 10 - b TN; and Elizabeth 5 - b TN. Their post office on Patterson Creek looked as if it said "Berrys". Robert L. Harp fought in the Civil War in the 49th Mounted Infantry - Co., "C" for the Union.
Does anyone recognize this family? I'm trying to find when Elijah and Elizabeth died, and what became of their children. There is another Elijah Harp in Whitley Co, KY, and it sometimes gets confusing. But, the info on this family is correct. Elizabeth Lewis is the daughter of Fielding Lewis and Mary Gambill of Claiborne Co., TN.
I will appreciate any info about any of the above mentioned people.
