In Reply to: Need help with Ashton twp 1790 census by Yvonne Vares of 964

Hello, Yvonne,
I work in Aston (not Ashton anymore). There were several Abraham Sharples(s) and to compound the confusion, there were also multiple wives for these men!
I'm guessing you are referring to this Abraham Sharpless:
FHC #0020457 Item #8 Quaker Records, Concord MM Marriages 1698-1783 p.183
2d 8m 1751 = 2 Oct 1751
"Whereas Abraham Sharpless of Concord in Chester Co. son of Joseph and Lydia Sharpless of Middletown, and Ann Young of the said township dau. of John and Mary Young of Chester Co... Full accomplishing their said intentions this 2nd day of the 8th month in the year of our Lord 1751...
WITNESSES: [1st row] Nicholas Newlin, Caleb Peirce, Joseph Gilpin, Robert Green, John Larkin, John Newlin, Robert Mendenhall, Ann Newlin, Mary Newlin Senior, Jane Pyle, Edith Sharpless, Mary Griffith, Mary Newlin // [2nd row] Mary Sharpless, Benjamin Sharpless, Nathan Sharpless, Jacob Sharpless, James Young, Robert Pennell, Nathaniel Newlin, Samuel Mendenhall, Micajah Speakman, John Hall, Joshua Mendenhall, Sarah Newlin, Thomas Young // [3rd row] Lydia Richards, Mary Pennell, Mary Peirce, Jane Gibbons, Ann Speakman, Ann Sharpless, Martha Sharpless, Prudance Richards, Esther Mendenhall, Phebe Mendenhall, Jan Hoops, Jane Sharpless, Hannah Sharpless, Abigail Sharpless // [last row] Abraham Sharpless, Ann Sharpless (bride & groom), Joseph Sharpless Sr, Lydia Sharpless, Joseph Sharpless Jr, Samuel Sharpless, Susanna Chamberlin"
I am related to the Mendenhalls, by the way.
