The good news is that I do have information on this Harp family.
Basically I believe Walter Harp is descended from Thomas Sr. & Abigail
Harp. Thomas was b. ca 1787 NC (1850 census), d. bet 1850 & 1860 census
prob. in Madison Co, AR. He made the same moves as the other Harps and I
believe he was possibly a brother or cousin of John Harp. He was listed
on the 1812 Warren Co, TN Tax List, and is mentioned in plat records there
in 1825 & 1826. He is on the 1830 Warren Co, Tn census and the 1832
Warren Co, TN Tax List. He went to Washington Co, AR by the 1836 Tax List and possibly was there earlier as his youngest daughter lists her birth as
ca 1833 in AR. Madison Co, AR was created out of Washington Co, AR in 1836 and so he is listed in Madison Co, AR thereafter - 1837 & 1838 Madison Co,
AR Tax Lists; in 1839 purchased land in NE, SW, Sec 3, Twp 18, Rng 26 of
Madison Co. He is on the 1840 & 1850 Madison Co, AR census record and is on Madison Co. Tax lists up through 1856.
From census records, I have the following children:
1. Sarah Harp b. ca 1815 m. Abner Bohannon (The death certificate of
their son, John Bohannon, listed his parents as Abner Bohannon & Harp)
2. unknown female Harp b. ca 1815-1820
3. unknown female Harp b. ca 1815-1820
4. Henry Harp b. ca 1822 TN
5. Agnes Harp b. ca 1824 TN
6. Thomas Harp Jr. b. ca 1825, m. ca 1844 to Martha J. McGinnis b. ca
7. Jane Harp b. ca 1827 TN

McCarver b. 9 Mar 1832 TN, d. 11 Jun 1914 Madison Co, AR
