I am in possession of a Bible that belonged to a descendant of Thomas Minish (b-26 April 1787, d-15 May 1848) and James Minish (b-13 Nov 1809, d-10 June 1885). The Bible was published in 1850. The entries in the "Family Record" section were made in two different handwritings. The first ended with a date in 1878. The second set begin with a date in 1885.
There are entries for the deaths of 3 Tharps: "Zedick Tharp died July 13, 1868" "Elizabeth Tharp died Oct 11, 1868" "MaryJ Tharp died Aug 7, 1878"
The Bible was found in Yadkin County, NC.
Any information concerning these Tharp's is greatly appreciated.
