Searching the History of Fayette County Tx. I find the following information on Thomas and his wife Lucinda. Granted there isn't much on him but there is an interesting twist to this whole thing.
It seems that Lucinda was the d/o John Cooke and wife Ann. John Cooke died in 1835, leaving widow Ann, daughter Lucinda, and son John Jr. With the two children to support, Ann sold the land in 1839. After her death ca 1849, her daughter Lucinda (by this time was Mrs. Thomas Harper) sued Wm. Scallorn, exec. of Ann's Estate to get the rest of the land due her and her minor brother, John. Lucinda was Mrs. Lucinda Collum when she married Isaac Sellers in 1841. Lucinda m. Thomas Harper in 1849. She was divorced years later and died in 1891 at West Point. She is buried under the name of L.J. Harper. At various times after Isaac's death, the boys are under the guardianship of Thomas Harper or Robert Sellers.
There is additional regarding the Sellers Cooke families but I thought you were most interested in Harper so that is all I took down.
Additionally, Thomas Harper is listed in the Muster Rolls for the Plum Grove Rifles.
The twist is that, Wm. Scallorn was married to my grx4 grandaunt. Small world!
Anyway, hope this helps.
