This is a real long shot but.... I am looking for info on the death of Robert P. Johnson of Taylor County, Virginia (which became West Virginia in 1863).
Robert was the 2nd husband of Nancy Jane Marple Jacobs Johnson Sharps. Nancy was the mother of Margaret Lavina "Maggie" Sharps who in 1870 married Samuel Pierce Bailey.
The 1850 census for Robert indicates he was born c. 1822 in Va (possibly WV) and in 1844 he married Nancy Jane Marple (widow of John Jacobs) in Monongalia Co., Virginia/WV. They had 3 children - Rebecca, Mary E, and William Henry.
Robert evidently passed sometime between 23 Sept 1850 (census date) and 26 Dec 1854. On this date in 1854, Nancy married Jesse Sharps of Taylor Co, Va/WV so it is assumed she is a widow.
Margaret & Jesse had 3 children - Margaret, Clark, and Columbia.
I'm hoping a descendant of Margaret may have info on the death of her mother's 2nd husband, Robert P. Johnson.
