I don't know what state your people are in, but I know of a Harp family in Northern Michigan who are Native American.

Betty:

It may be that you've already seen this, but it seems there is a book available: The Harp Funeral Home Book (196 pages)for $30.00 from the Whitely County (KY) Historical and Genealogical Society. [I've attached a link to the site - just click on the title.]

Oddly enough, the surname is the same as that which you are inquiring about.  It may or may not be the same family.  There's also a phone number on that webpage - probably worth calling before spending your money on a 'roll of the dice'.

I hope this helps and good luck!

No, not that we know.  He was my great-grand father.  I have a photo of him as an older man.

It depends on which Elijah Bohannon Harp you're talking about. Elijah Sr was not Native American but his wife Martha Jane Tate (little bell) was believed to be full Cherokee I believe. That should make Elija jr half Cherokee. I would love to see that picture you have. I have a couple old picture you might would like to see.  Elijah Sr. Would've been my 4xggrandad, Joe Harp, Abe Harp, Doyle Harp,James Harp, Paul Harp, James Harp, and my son Elijah Harp.
