William [1793-1851] and David [1795 were brothers, sons of William Harper and Nancy Faris who were m. 9 May 1786 in the Back Creek Presbyterian Church, Berkeley Co., VA. About 1806 the Harper familyl moved to Ross Co., OH in a part that became Fayette Co. in 1810. I am not sure when they moved to IA. They settled in Henry Co., IA.

William Jr. m. Sarah Campbell, 18 Aug 1825 and David m. Hannah Wallace 2 Jan 1823 in Fayette Co., OH. William Jr. d. 12 May 1851 and David d. 23 Apr 1851. They are buried in Kossuth Cemetery near Mt. Pleasant, IA. I am looking for their widows, Sarah And Hannah.
