Classification: Query
Sharp, John
d. 3 May 1854 - Headstone found in a field near Rio Oso. Stone read "Sacred to the memory of John Sharp who was murdered, May 3, 1854, age 53y, from Bennington, Vt." Stone is at the Mary Aaron Museum in Marysville.

Note ~ Rio Oso is in Rio Oso California in Sutter County. It is a small farming community. It appears the tombstone of the above gentleman, who was from Bennington, VT. was found in an open field there.

The Mary Aaron Musuem is located at...

MARY AARON MUSEUM
704 D Street
Marysville, CA
95901
Yuba County
Museum Office Phone # is 530-743-1004

This notice can also be seen in the California Tombstone Project website. Just thought I would post this information here as well for John Sharp family in case they are looking for him.There are also other found tombstones found and brought to the Mary Aaron Musuem. Call the Musuem for more information. Hope this is helpful.

Sincerely,
Rebecca
