JOHNSON--DAVIS--BARNETT--WEST Looking for any inf. on the life of George M. JOHNSON (1834-1916) and his wife, Elizabeth (WEST) JOHNSON (1840-1911). I am told they were found in; Claiborne Co., TN. Vital Statistics 1914-1925 published by Cleveland Public Library, edited by Edna Wiefering. But I don't know what is there on them. If you have access to those records, I would appreciate a look-up. They had a daughter in Claiborne Co.; Louisa (JOHNSON) DAVIS (abt. 1865-1919). Who was her husband? She died in Claiborne Co. Would there be a death record? Elizabeth was the dau. of Isaac & Artie (BARNETT) WEST. I would like any inf. on them also. Elizabeth was born in TN., probably Claiborne Co. I do not have access to Claiborne Co. records so census, marriage, birth, & death records look-ups would be very much appreciated and would love to find other descendants. Thank you,

"Searching for names of parents of my g-grandfather, Ambrose Sharp, born May 3, 1824, who on December 16, 1847, married Elizabeth "Betty" Shoffner, born April 15, 1826. He died May 18, 1888 and she died July 4, 1894. They are both buried in Sharp's Cemetery in Sharps Chapel, Union County, Tn. He may have had a half-brother, Larkin Dillion Sharp who married Nancy Janeway on June 20, 1847. Larkin was about 5 years older than Ambrose. Each was listed with their families in the 1850, 1860, and the 1870 Union County census with their wives and children. I have much information I can share on Ambroses' descendents and a list of Larkin's family up through the 1870 census. I have access to much info on many of the Sharps who came into the Sharps Chapel area at the beginning settling of the area, but cannot connect these Sharps to them. There must be a connection though since their descendents carry many of the names used in each of these earlier Sharp families. My snail mail address is: Evelyn K. Moyers, 117 Montreal Lane, Oak Ridge, Tn 37830."
