« Who was the father of Jacob Sharp (1705-1748)? | Main | Henry Clay Sharp House (early) »

May 03, 2004


Milton Sharp,

I am an African American Male whose grandfather was Mosscoe Sharp from Harrellsville, NC. I did a web search to find out more information and this site popped up. I believe there may be a connection. Were your predecessor slave owners?

I am slow to respond to the two comments above as I just started looking at the this site again. To answer the first question. My Sharp ancestors were slave owners. However, I have not record of the names of any of the slaves. I am going to start publishing more of content and will be happy to provide any information that I have.

To the second question, all the Sharp relatives that I know about are still in North Carolina. Their ancestors all lived in the South. My paternal grandmother was a Sharp and I do not know all of the current generation.

I am African American, and I am from Bertie County, NC. My great-great grandfather is Daniel Simons. His tombstone indicates he was born Oct. 8, 1836.

According to the oral history of my family, the family name for one of our elder ancestors was Sharp before it was changed to Simons. Apparently, this elder of the family was sold from a land owner in Hertford County to a land owner in Bertie County.

Also, a website that I visited noted family ties between the Sharp Family in Hertford County and a Simons Family in Bertie County.

I am trying to find the parentage of a Bethia Sharp Hillhouse b most likely in the 1770s. Married a John Hillhouse from the So. Carolina Hillhouses. Bethia and John had 8 children, one named Starkey Sharp Hillhouse - unfortunately we have no info on him. John and Bethia lived in North Carolina, then Kentucky, and ultimately Giles Co. Tennessee.
Our family book dated 1972 states that she most likely came from the Col. Starkey Sharp family of North Carolina. Any help? Thank you

Great stuff! This will be a very valuable rsuceroe for people looking for genealogy software. Since Software Springboard vanished a few years ago and Bill Mumford stopped his wonderful detailed comparison of programs, there is a big void to fill.Feel free to use the info I have at my Software Links page as a rsuceroe. Once you start putting up reviews of programs, I'll be very happy to link to your Permalinks.I do only have info on programs which have websites. If you're looking for some old applications, you can look in the Software Repositories section of my Links page.I really wouldn't mind helping you develop your site, but I do have to devote the majority of my time to the development of my program Behold.All the best!

I am African American. My great great grandparents were Jenkins Sharp (1861-1936) of Harrellsville and Martha Hall (1868-1949) of Winton. Harrellsville was where the slave plantations were located. Winton was the epicenter of the free colored community.

While attending the Hall Family Reunion in August, I visited two Sharp family cemeteries - New Harrellsville Chapel Baptist Church in Cofield and Mt Pleasant Baptist Church in Harrellsville. I am sharing my recorded log of Sharp/Sharpe tombstones (and some Sessoms) in case it is of interest or value to any African American Sharps following this blog.
