Biography

Margaret Sharp was born on 10 October 1848 in Ohio, USA. She died in 1859, at age ~11. She was buried in Prattsville, Vinton, Ohio, USA.
Tombstone in the old Prattsville Cemetery reads MARGARETT (all caps), Dau of T & M, Sharp, Died, June... stone broken here, Aged, 10years, 5 months,10 days. (According to the U.S. Census records thisage cannot be correct. The stone is hard to read, but I have beenthere twice to look at it and this appears to be what it says.) Birthand death dates given to me by Sherry Hunter Strickland in a letterdated 21 March 1995 from information contained in the family recordsof her Uncle Bill seem to confirm the above age at death. Censusrecords may have said Margaret when Martha was the child they meant?

Biography

Martha A. Sharp was born in 1798 in Maryland, USA.1 She witnessed the birth of Bazzel Denbow on 14 January 1819 in Harford, Maryland, USA, His "Graves Record" from the Adjutant General's office says he was born in 1824, but census records and other documents place birth year as 1819.2 She witnessed the birth of Edith Denbow in 1821 in Harford, Maryland, USA. Martha A. Sharp witnessed the birth of James Denbow on 20 April 1824 in Harford, Maryland, USA, Several sources list his birth year as 1823; the official GravesRecord from the Adjutant General's office says 1827, which is mostassuredly wrong. She witnessed the birth of Sarah Ann Denbow in 1825. Martha A. Sharp witnessed the birth of Elizabeth Denbow in 1827 in Ohio, USA. Martha A. Sharp witnessed the birth of John Denbow, Jr., on 9 August 1827.3 She witnessed the birth of Susan Denbow on 27 January 1831 in Monroe, Ohio, USA.4 Martha A.

She and John Denbow were married on 9 March 1818 in Harford, Maryland, USA, This marriage date, which differs by exactly one year from the one recorded in the Marriage License book for Harford County appears to be correct. I suspect a clerical error in the book.5 She and John Denbow were married on 9 March 1819 in Harford, Maryland, USA.6 She died in 1855, at age ~57, in Ohio, USA. She died in 1855, at age ~57, in Lewisville, Monroe, Ohio, USA.1
