John Harper (fl.1780)

John Harper was born in County Tyrone, Ireland. He entered the Irish itinerancy in 1786 and was ordained by John Wesley the following year for the mission to the West Indies.

He was stationed on the island of Antigua from 1788. His wife's declining health compelled him to move to the United States in 1794 and he entered the American ministry. He resigned in 1799.
