Edward Harper
Anne,

The Edward Harper line in my family tree has Frances "Fanny Bibb" as wife of Edward Harper.

Frances Bibb is named in the will of her father, dated 29 Jan 1781, Amherst Co., VA as daughter "Frances Harper". This will is recorded in Will Book 2, page 229, Amherst Co., VA and was signed 9 January 1781, and proved 3 December 1781, names his wife, Sarah;sons, William, John, Henry, James and Martin; daughters Mary Gray, Frances Harper, Temperance Bibb, Barbara Cobb and "my four oldest daughters" - Elizabeth Newglass, Anne Key, Rachel Glass and Barbara Cobb.

note:Frances had married Edward Harper, son of Henry Harper, Sr., who had witnessed this will of Thomas Bibb, who had maried Sarah Martin. The Harpers and Bibbs lived on adjoining property in Amherst County, VA.

If you contact me by email, I will be glad to share what info I have on this line. I have not proved Edward's connection to Henry Harper who is said to have served in the Rev War.
