1. This certifies that T.J. Harp and Isabel Gilbert were united in the Holy bonds of Matrimony at Thomas Henderson’s
on the 26 day if Jan 1861. In the presence of: James Henderson and Mary Huffman." Maybe one side or another a
family member. Son? Isabelle was born 1 Jan 1838.
2. Mattie Smith says they were married 15 Apr 1861? (after the children were born?)
Thomas L. HARP
1. AFN:118J-JBX,From Ancestral File (TM), data as of 2 January 1996. This file says he was born abt 1804?
2. Thomas (L., or T.,or, J. ?) HARP. Born in NC? not Tennessee. (Jefferson, middle name?)
3. BASIC: Reference from the book, CARROLL CO. FAMILIES: THESE WERE THE FIRST, Carroll Co., AR 1991
editor/compiler Jim Lair. (Lib # 976.717 D3L) S.L. Ut. Family Historical Center.
"Thomas (J.) Harp, who was born 4 July 1828, (the year doesn't fit with birth order of other siblings) Overton Co.,
TN (not NC) was united in marriage with (1) Celia Harp, (2) Rhoda Wright and (3) Isabell Gilbert, died 31 May 1910
and was interred in the Clifty Cemetery--"
NOTE: The b. of 1828 bothers me because it doesn't fit the sibling order (do the have this order?) . Maybe everyone's
copying the same mistake and passing it on. Their are many books written on the Harp's and their lines using the same
sources. However, more research has to be done here. I cannot accept all of this yet ...the1828.

4. This is repeated in the book, "Harp Strings" by Mattie Benson Smith. #929.273 H23s. Pub. Broken Arrow,
Oklahoma (1886). Contents: A genealogy of the descendants of Thomas Jefferson Harp, born 4 July 1828 in Overton
He died 31 May 1910 in Clifty, AR. It includes Weeks, Hinds, and related families. (S.L.C. Ut. Gen. Lib.)
Note: "Albert Harp, who owns Harp's Market in Eureka Springs, is a descendant of this branch of the family."
Submitted by Evelyn Johnson." He is not connected yet with this Harp genealogy.
I think their are two Thomas Harps are in one...needs to clear up.
Ancestral files say he was born abt 1804 in N.C.? (Not TN)
1850 census Madison Co., Prairie Twp., Arkansas...their is a Carter Harp who is 19 born in AR., and his wife Diana who
is 18 born in Missouri. I believe he is a son.
5. 1860 census Prairie twp., Madison Co., Arkansas says he was born in 1795
NC not TN.

- Abigail Abbey GILBERT
AFN: 118J-JBX,

this is a different person do the work. (this source says born abt 1808 NC)?

Jim Lair and Harp line was submitted by Evelyn Johnson. (Lib. # 976.717 D3L Family History Center in S.L. City Utah)
Evelyn refers her as an "Isabel" or maybe he married her sister too?

"Harp, Nora May, 8 Sep 1875 and died 9 Dec 1881, dau of Thomas J. and Isabelle Blue Gilbert. Maybe Abigail Gilbert
