My grandmother was born in August 1880 in NJ, according to
the 1915 Camden, Camden, NJ city census. She married William Sharp and had 8 children, 5 of which lived. Her last child, named "Roland" in the city census is my father. The other 4 children that lived were named Harry, Wilameda, Thomas, Helen (nickname Peggy). According to Harry's daughter, Harriet, Almeda walked in on William with another woman and threw him out. She took the children to the local orphanage when she couldn't take care of them, with the intention of coming back for them. She never did. We have no information beyond that. Please contact me if you have any information on Almeda. Thanks, Sue Aaron
