"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,
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."

he was living in Claiborne Co., TN, while in 1850 and 1860, he was living
in Campbell Co., TN. I am not sure if they moved or if county changed boundary.

went in 1857, but likely all three families traveled together in a caravan.

his sisters' families in Page Co., Iowa for a few years, before moving
on to California.I have some of the next generation, but would like to
