Sharp, about 1850
Posted by: A. Sharp (ID *****7504) Date: June 07, 2005 at 16:44:02

Looking for document references for the Sharp family, mostly in Turtle Creek Twp -- deeds, wills, cemetery record.

Robert Sharp is reported to have moved to Shelby from Highland in about 1833. He and his son Samuel appear in the 1840 census. Robert and wife Grizella (Grizzy, Grisela, etc - Scottish nickname for Grace) are reportedly buried in the McClure Cemetery about 1/4 mile west of Kuther Rd in some woods (between Mason Road and Ohio 705). Although the linkage is not precisely stated, it appears that the dates of Robert's birth and death (3 Jul 1784-12 Aug 1841) were taken from a headstone in the cemetery.

Grizella is reported to have been born , 29 Apr 1787, 29 Apr 1789, or 6 Oct 1789 and to have died 1 Jan 1853 or 1 Jun 1853, presumably from the same source. I have been unable to locate her in the 1850 census, nor have I confirmed any of these dates through something approximating an original source.

Any help?
