Me again,

I still feel your Sam is Sam the third:

Samuel Sharon Jr.

Samuel Sharon was born in Fayette township on February 23, 1785. He married Sarah (Sally) Davis in Mifflintown on November 10, 1814. Sally was the daughter of Joshua Davis and Sarah Lincoln Davis. Mrs. Davis was the daughter of Mordecai Lincoln who was a cousin of Benjamin Lincoln (from my old hometown of Hingham, Massachusetts) who was the first American ancestor of President Abraham Lincoln.

His sons, William Sharon, Banks W. Sharon and John H. Sharon fought in the Civil War. Afterwards they sold the farm and moved with their families to Davis County, Iowa.

I do not have full information on this family.

In the 1830 census, Sam is shown with Sarah and more kids than he should have had. There ia one son under 4, another between 5 and 9, one between 10 and 14 and another between 15 and 20. The first I have a record of is William who wasn't even born yet. Same with the daughters. There is one between 5 and 9 and one between 10 and 15.

In 1840 the family is shown as one son under 4 (but I have both Banks and John in that Category?), two sons between 10 and 14, one son between 15 and 19 and one more in his 20s. There are now two daughters 5 to 9 and two more 15 to 19. Confusing, yes?

In 1850, I finally get some names: Sam is 61, Sarah 54, Maria 28, Ann 26, William 24, Hutchinson 22, Harriet 19, Louisa 15 and Banks 12.

Well here goes as best I can with the family of Sam junior and Sarah Sharon:

SAMUEL SHARON born around 1815. He married Elizabeth Egley at the Lost Creek Prebyterian Church in Juniata County on January 23, 1841. In the 1850 census he was 36 (listed as 26), Betsy was 30. They had two daughters S. E. (Sarah?) 8 and Ann 1 year old.

D. M. SHARON born about 1819. In the 1850 census of Juniata County he is shown as being 29 and his wife M. H. is 28. There were no children then. He was listed as being an attorney.

MARIA SHARON born in 1822.

ANN SHARON born in 1824.

WILLIAM SHARON was born in 1826. After serving in the Union Army in the Civil War,he moved to Davis County, Iowa.

JOHN HUTCHINSON SHARON was born in 1828. He served in the 126th Pennsylvania Infantry in the Civil War. In 1864 he moved to Bloomfield, Davis County, Iowa where he owned a 1000 acre farm some four and a half miles from town. On September 7, 1865 he married Prudence Wann from Muskingum County, Ohio. She died June 7, 1874 and he then married a widow, Mrs. Biddle.

HARIETT SHARON born in 1831.

LOUISA SHARON born in 1835.

BANKS W. SHARON was born in 1838. His wife was named Mary.

One daughter married and lived in Juneburg, Pennsylvania, another married and lived in Bloomburg, Pennsylvania according to a printed but vague source.
