I'm looking for the parents of a Harpa/Harper Carrie Minerva Straun, she was born c1830 in Tenn. according to the census. She marr. a Hiram Cozart in Yalobusha Co. MS, Sept. 1849, marr. record has Stone, but a family Bible has her name as Straun, some have it as Strong and Armstrong. I believe she and possibly her family may have gone to Miss. with these Cozart's from Carroll Co. TN, c1841. There is a J.T. Straun living very near Minerva and her Cozart husband on the 1850 Yalobusha Co. MS census. They end up in Calhoun Co. MS by 1860 due to county line changes.
J.T. Straun, 26, AL
Narcissa " , 23, TN
Sarah " , 7, MS
Tabitha " , 58, NC
I figure this is probably this J.T. Straun's mother. I've wondered if the name Harper might have been her mother's maiden name. Any help appreciated, thanks, Kay. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
