Re: Pendleton County, West Virginia Hinkles
I know nothing more about the Harper's than below:
THE HENCKEL BULLETIN, Henckel Family Assoc.
p. 572 The information for the family of Col. Jesse Hinkle is incompleter and confused...I decided to tell the whole story. The Junkins spent much time trying to decide what to do, but since most of the time the children used the name Harper they did not include it. On p. 233 they quote part of a letter from H. M. Calhoun.
p. 578 copy of the entire letter to Miss Curry, the Henckel Historian dated 18 Jun 1929 from H. M. Calhoun who personally had seen Catharine Harper when on a visit to his grandfather who kept her after the death of Jesse Hinkle.
