Has someone formed a guess as to who is the father of Sharp Winningham/Willingham b. ca 1772 d. ca 1816 Person Co., NC m. 20 July 1793 in Caswell Co., NC to Mary Edna "Polly" Morgan?
Birth date is estimated from marriage date.
Marriage date and location is from marriage record.
Death date is from widow petition for support May 1816 record in Person Co., NC.
Children from guardian bond 11 Nov 1817 and guardian records 24 Jan 1819 Person Co., NC are: Thomas, Edney, Harriett, Phillip, Elizabeth, Henry, and Sarah m. Robert Mann (possible son of Sarah and Robert: William Mann Jr also named.)

Sharp Winningham and family are on the 1810 Person Co., NC census; Widow Mary Winningham and family are on the 1820 Person Co., NC census. Son Thomas and Widow Mary in separate households are on the 1830 Bedford Co., TN census.

Widow Mary is not seen on later census; sons Thomas, Phillip, and Henry went to AL; Thomas and Henry went to MS and then to TX. I have more details on these families and will share.
