Re: Abraham Sharp descendent
I'm following up to my own message.Since I sent this I have received information from the Bedford Co., VA Gen. Socy. concerning Abraham Sharpe of Bedford Co. There is conclusive evidence that there was an Abraham, who was son of John which is referenced in a court document dated 1774. He also personally signed a Peaks of Otter Presbyterian Church petition in the same year. They indicated that there were only 2 Abrahams at that time: Abraham who married Rebecca Armstrong and Abraham who married Anne Reid in 1789.The latter is known to be the son of Adam and Phoebe.So this would leave the former as being the son of John: not the John who married Ann Dooley (they would be of the same generation); nor Matthias nor Thomas as is being propagated across the internet.If anyone has proof otherwise that these statements are false or incomplete please let me know.
