Seeking information on Alexander Harper, born abt. 1747 and died abt. 1830, Simpson CO. MS. , son of Robert Harper and Mary Dunlap.Did Alexander Harper, marry a Martha Jones and then a Sarah ?? (last name unknown)Does any records reflect, sibblings of this marriage?
Townsend SC Baptist, page 182, list Alexander and wife Sarah as member's of the Turkey Creek Baptist Church, Chester County, SC in 1780.Also note that on page 210 itlists a Robert Harper, clerk , Robck Spring Church GA, beleived to be the brother of Alexander Harper.
In addition to the above information:Records of Philips Mill Baptist Church, Wilkes CO GA shows that on March 12, 1791 "Received by letter Alexander Harper"
