Anne,I have a Sara Harper 1748-1786 m 1770 to John Wager Sr. 1747-1803 and four of their children and some grandchildren if you are interested. Sarah inhertited Harper's Ferry, VA from her uncle, Robert who had no children. I am not sure if her descendents went to NC., but many of the Harper family did. I am a Jerome descendent, too. We corresponded before this a while back.
