About Susan Wood, AKA "Susannah Roberts"

On September 5, 1797, in Blount County, Tennessee, Micajah Harpe married Susannah Roberts (Susan Wood).

According to Jon Musgrave, the Harpe women, after cohabitation with the brothers, led relatively respectable and normal lives.

Upon the death of Micajah "Big" Harpe in Kentucky, Wiley "Little" Harpe went into hiding and their women were apprehended and taken to the Russellville, Kentucky state courthouse and later released.

For a time, Susan Wood Harpe and Maria Davidson (aka Betsey Roberts Harpe) lived in Russellville. Susan Wood remarried later, and died in Tennessee. Cave-In-Rock historian, Otto A. Rothert, believed that Susan Wood remarried, died in Tennessee, and that her daughter went to Texas.
