Who were the parents of the Harriet Pope who married William Stafford Granberry?;

I have a hunch that it could be Henry Richardson Pope and Matilda Rawls.

Matilda Rawls was the daughter of Benjamin Franklin Rawls and Mary Slade. Matilda married Henry Richardson Pope 9 Oct 1838 in Marion Co. MS. They had three children:
1. Harriet Pope, born abt. 1840
2. Mary Pope, born abt. 1842
3. Sarah Pope, born abt. 1844

I believe both Henry Pope and Matilda Rawls died before 1850. Many of the Rawls family living in Covington, Perry, and Marion counties in the mid-1800s. The three Pope girls may have been raised by Jacob Pope, a brother of Henry Richardson Pope.
