Family tree info on William Harper

Filed under: Comments,Family History,Request — bethpence @ 2:08 AM

Hi all

My great grandmother was Samira Louise Tyson, sister of Laurette Tyson Melton.  I noticed in your family tree that you have William S Harper married to Amanda Oglesby.  I too found that info but do not believe it is the same William Harper that had been married to my Samira Louise.  I think that the WH married to Amanda was born in 1869 in LA whereas my great grandfather was born in Texas in 1851 and died there in 1924.  I have no further info on him or his family, so if anyone out there has some input I would appreciate it.  Will Harper and Samira (Sallie) had three children before she died. The oldest Will Harper Jr sent his dad military postcards in the early 1920′s in Texas. He also lived part of his later years with Laura’s daughter Mollie.  Any of Mollie’s descendants out there with any family history on the early childhood years of Will, his sister Alma or brother Sam?  Again thanks for having this blog available, hope to hear from someone soon

  1. In the above post from Apr 2010 I believed that WS Harper was not married to Amanda Oglesby, but I have since learned that he indeed married Mandy shortly after Samira passed. Still hoping to hear from someone re: any family history of my Uncle’s Will, Sam, grandmother, Alma, or Will Harper or Samira “Sally” Thank you
