My Greatgreat Grandfather Glenn Alvin Harper married Charity Edith and lived on our family farm in Deveraux, GA. My Great Grandfather was Glenn Alvin Harper born 1884 married Mattie Turner. My Grandfather was Glenn Harper. The family farm house sets off of Sandy Run and is situated where the old Littie Roe house once stood. There are 2 cemeteries on the family farm. Unfortunately- one has been neglected and is no longer recognized, unless one knows where it is. One cemetery is of the Harper family.

Deciphering Old Handwriting Not only have our words and their meanings changed throughout the years, the way we form the letters have too. From a course taught by Sabina J. Murray.
