Was H.E. Sharp, and his family, on the 1860 census? If they were in Anderson Co, TX have you tried tax records for that county? You can obtain microfilmed copies of tax records for TX counties from formation of the county up to about 1940, on inter library loan from State Lib in Austin, through your local public library. You would want to see when the name H.E. Sharp is dropped from tax records and his wife's name appears. It would mean he is deceased. That would narrow down when he died.

He might not have been brought back to Anderson Co, TX to be buried, but if his widow is buried there, his name might be included on her headstone (I have a couple like that). Check Anderson Co, TX GenWeb site, some GenWeb counties are putting their cemeteries online. Post a query, see if anyone has a copy of a published county history, and will they check their copy for any possible info on your Sharp family. People killed by Indians are usually mentioned in county histories.
