Sampson Harp - Deborah Grace

The Sam Harp mentioned was possibly Sampson Harp who came from
Overton Co, TN about 1836-1837 to Carroll County, and listed on the
1836 Overton Co, TN Tax List and then on the 1837 Carroll Co, AR Tax
List. Also is found some of the other people Turnbow mentioned on this
1837 Tax List. Samspon was on the 1840 Carroll Co, AR census and a
few of the others were as well. But I found most of these people
(except Sampson) later listed on the 1850 & 1860 Marion Co, AR census
records.

Both Carroll & Marion Co. were created out of Izard Co, AR - Carroll in 1833 and Marion in 1836. The area that is now Boone Co, AR was part of Carroll Co, AR until 1869, so Carroll Co. would have butted up to the western border of Marion Co, AR during the 1836 to 1869 time
frame.

This Sampson Harp married Deborah Grace ca 1810 probably in TN. By 1850 they had moved to Johnson Co, AR and from there to the Stockton area of San Joaquin Co, CA by 1860. They both died there before the 1870 census, and have no dates of death, but, according to
info. passed on, Sampson maybe buried near Turner, CA and Deborah in buried at French Camp Cem, San Joaquin Co, CA.

1. Sarah Stanton Harp b. 4 Jun 1812 TN m. Isham Johnson Davis

wife of Edward Grangreen, living next door to Sampson & Deborah Harp
in 1850?)
