Re: Edward Sharp Co. Armagh Ireland c.1700
FYI:Paxton PA is another name for Harrisburg.Sharp is a very common name.Although, the Sharp that really comes out in history is Captain Andrew Sharp who was killed by Native Americans in Pittsburgh in the late 1700's.
There seems to be a very strong connection between Carlisle and Pittsburgh in the mid 1700's with the Greentree INN.
The Paxton's were Indian Fighters in the area. They were a group of brothers called The Paxton Brothers.
My research is on three families that were HUNTERS at the time.
Hunter John Myers
Hunter Tim Murphy
Hunter Robert Stuart
All three families were connected to writer James Fenimore Cooper.There range was from Lake Placid NY to Fredericksburg VA.Their hometown was Pittsburgh.
