Do you connect to Ambros Sharp of Union CO TN? My great-grandfather was John Henry Sharp of Sharp's Chapel TN and Knoxville TN.. I am trying to find Ambros parents.

Ambrose Sharp was my gggrandfather. I do not know who his parents are. There is some speculation that John Honas Sharp was his father but I don't see how that can be. I've looked and looked but can't figure it out myself. I am descended through his son Calvin Sharp.

Surnames: *SHARP--OAKS
I, honestly, do not know to whom my SHARP's and OAKS' connect. It was only two years ago that my 93 year old grandmother told me (just before her death) that her grandmother was MARTHA SHARP (2nd wife of WILLIS GREEN WELCH) (marriage info is on file) [Martha had died soon after giving birth to her only child, CHARLES OSCAR WELCH, my great grandfather.] and not MARY ADALINE GUY (3rd wife of WILLIS GREEN WELCH) [Willis had married 1st Mary Whited.]. All of my WELCH-SHARP-OAKS connections are from the area known as Lead Mine Bend over by the Norris Lake backup at Sharp's Chapel Tennessee. (Some of those farms were covered by the lake and my WELCH line wound up on the north side of the water, but still in Union county.) I am still searching for my Sharp & Oaks connections. If I find any new information I will post the same here for others to use. Sorry I couldn't answer your specific query.

We are looking for some of the same people and probably connect. Contact me at my e-mail: margannals@aol.com

I have these names in my group: Sharp;Whited;Graves;Shofner;Moser;Keck

My people are mostly from Claiborne (now Union) CO TN and some of them had land that was covored by Norris. The cemetery was relocated. There are also a number buried in Knoxville and Sharp's Chapel.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Do you have information on Elenders family? They were my GGG Grandparents too. Through their daughter Permelia. I have yet to find out who her parents were. Thanks!

I have been researching my father's family and don't have my mom's information at hand but will try to find something for you next week. Permelia rings a bell. The Sharps all seem to be located in the same general area there. I will be out of town until Monday but will get back to you.If you would like to reach me: margannals@aol.com

Monday would be just fine. William and Elenders daughter Permelia Caroline married Orville Lee Peters. I have a picture of her on Ancestry. But I have not been able to find anything on Elender Oaks, so any help would be deeply appreciated!

I have also posted a new thread today about William H Sharp, son of William and Elender. Trying to prove that he was the one who married Lucinda Ellison, if you might know, or know how I could find something to prove that. There are a lot of clues which point strongly to it, but nothing solid.

Thanks!
