I am looking for the Parents of a Martha George she married William Sharp
A very early settler at Roseville. this sterling pioneer was born in Ireland and was a vigorous and ambitious youth of 17 when he came to America around 1821. He and his wife were well fortified for the labors and vicissitudes which fell to their lot as pioneers and it is supposed their son John G. was born at Roseville. They established their home on the farm now owned and occupied by Layafette, their grandson. the property having come into their possession about 1840 when the land was little more than a part of the untrammeled forest. They lived and labored for many years and their names merit endearing place on the roster of the pioneers of the county. In 1866 they moved to LaSale County, Ill. where they had a married daughter and there the venerable couple passed the remainder of their lives.
