Re: Thomas Sharp will 1808 Berkeley Co, V/WV
I'm a William Sharp b. abt. 1663 of Scotland descendant. Recently, through DNA we were able to identify that our Sharp family of Cumberland Co., NJ was from Wm Sharp. The John Sharp family of England & Burlington Co., NJ is a separate Sharp family although in later generations intermarriages occurred with these two families in NJ. My interest in the origin of Thomas Sharp who d. 1762 VA is due to his daughter Elizabeth who Thomas refers to in his will as Elizabeth Nation. The Nation family relates to the Daniel Robins family of NJ. The first name of Elizabeth's husband is undocumented but believed to be Christopher s/o of John Nation, Sr. & Bethiah Robins d/o Joseph & Hannah Pack Robins of NJ. Thanks for your postings & sharing your research on the Thomas Sharp family.
