I have also been told by an old relative that she thinks that William Bradley Harper had married a Rose Ann Stovall. Another old relative says he thinks his wife was Zelpha A. Sides. Another old relative said she thinks William's mother's name was Lizy Wiginton (spelling?). Any help/suggestions from anyone would be appreciated very much!
He married Tryphena Stone (born Sept. 15, 1787 Stockbridge, Berkshire, MA). They lived in Broome County, NY. Their children were Alexander Hamilton, George, Ruth (Hopkins), Charles, daughter-unknown, Harriet Jane (Severson), John M. and Betsey E.
Oliver was murdered May 11, 1824, probably by Jason Treadwell. Go to Find A Grave #8187500 for more on Oliver.
The only information I have was found online, plus what a researcher sent me.
My line is Ruth, who marred William Clark Reynolds Hopkins in Broome County, NY. They later moved to Kendall County, IL. No one in my line has any information on Oliver.
We would like to find descendants of Oliver's, in case they can add information...any letters, documents, etc the family may have handed down.
Betsey E. owned the family Bible in 1909. She was unmarried. What happened to that Bible?
Oliver was my great, great, great, great grandfather. Really want to connect with others in his family.
