I have a copy of a note that was found in the effects of Ethel Grimes McMichael upon her death. The names and dates, written of a doctor's statement, were probably furnished on request of Calista Sharon Grimes (Ethel's mother).

Office of S. G. Berry, M.D.
Tydall, S.D.____189__

Hugh Sharon born January 4, 1821
Julia Swain born December 22, 1824
Hugh Sharon and Julia Swain were married December 27, 1846

James C. Sharon Born Oct. 25, 1847
Warren Sharon Born Dec. 20, 1849
Elizabeth Sharon Born Mar. 21, 1852
John W. Sharon Born Nov. 1, 1852
Calista Sharon Born Sept. 17, 1857
Martin N. Sharon Born Feb. 4, 1859
Ida B. Sharon Born Sept. 10, 1863
Isadora Sharon Born Oct. 16, 1867

Hugh Sharon Died December 8, 1871
Julia Sharon Died August 6, 1881

This is a copy of the family record and is true.
James C. Sharon

Also, I have Calista Sharon Grimes' death certificate for March 2, 1915 in Oklahoma City.

Lastly, Charles and Emily Egbert of Scott County, KY published an extensive genealogy of families that was gathered over 22 years in his pastorate. It lists the descendents of Samuel Barnhill (1732 Ireland) and Jean Craig. Their daughter Jane married Hugh Sharon (1760- 1847) about 1790.
The Sharon Lineage begins with William Sharon then his son Hugh Sharon then his son Hugh Sharon born 1760.
There are many other families, including the Suttons (as in Elizabeth Bessie Sutton).
The multi volume books are entitled "Kith Kin Wee Kirk" by Charles and Emily Egbert. I photocopied the pages I was interested in when I visited Salt Lake City in 1996.
