Learn about sponsoring this memorial...
Birth: 1840
Marshall County
Mississippi, USA
Death: Dec. 7, 1862
Arkansas, USA

Son of Thomas Marion Harp and Prudence Masoner Harp.

Listed in T.Y. Harp's "My Kinfolk" as "Anderson Wisdom Harp, enlisted in the Jack Waterhouse Company of the Confederate Army and was killed in the Battle of Prairie Grove, Arkansas by a minnie ball, Decemeber 7, 1862."

Additional info from Alan Thompson, Museum Registrar, Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park - Sat, Sept 20th, 2015
"AW Harp was in Waterhouse's Company of the Crump/Lane 1st Texas Partisan Rangers. The records for this unit are incomplete and Harp's record, such as it is, is actually found in misc. records rather than the records with the regiment. Alan Thompson also attached a letter written by Anderson to his mother, Prudence. That letter is also in T.Y. Harp's "My Kinfolk."

Casualty Report.
"Pvt. A.W. Harp appears on a report of number of men engaged and casualties in Col. W. P. Lane's Reg't, Texas Partisan Rangers, commanded by Lt. Col. R. P. Crump, in the battle of Prairie Grove, Ark., Dec. 7, 1862. Dangerously wounded. Casualties, Ark. 22, Simpson, Copyist"

Info from Joy #47383324- "I think he's buried in an unmarked grave in Fayetteville's Confederate Cemetery in Arkansas. I found this quote on their website - The first burials were the remains disinterred from local Civil War battlefields such as Pea Ridge, Prairie Grove and Elk Horn Tavern. Interments were originally made with the headstone and inscription facing the flagpole. An inspection report dated May 1871 states there were 1,210 interments in the cemetery, "the greater portion being unknown white soldiers."

I've put his memorial here in the Bonne Idee to be close to family.
