Looking for parents, siblings, etc. of George who was b. ca 1817 in VA. He m. ca 1838 Anna Elizabeth SAGE, d/o Charles Comer Sage & Elizabeth BRYANT. He & Elizabeth with dau., Martha are in Lee Co. for 1840 census & in Missouri in 1850.
I have found a William Tharp in Lee Co., 1810 & 1830, who is a possible father, but there doesn't appear to be a census or tax lists for 1820.
George & Anna are my maternal 2gr-grandparents.

Hi In the 1820 Lee Co., Va Census I found a William Tharp and wife, both b. ca. 1775-1794, wit sons (George?), b. ca. 1810-1820. On an LDS Family Search onlin, VA (Morman Archives, I found George Thorpe. b. 1816 Lee Co.,VA who married Ann E. Sage in 1838 Lee Co., Va. I did not find the parents of George, but quite a few ancestors of Ann Sage. I am also sending another William Tharp Genealogy (Any relations to your Will Tharp. On LDS I also found 22 William Tharps, but no way to tell if one of them is the father of George. No charge for the research. About $2.00, afterwards for copies and postage would be appreciaed.

Although I have no documentation as proof, I believe William Tharp in the 1820 Lee County Census, with wife and sons, is the father of George and son of Polly in the 1820 census. George, wife and children are in 1850 Cass Co, MO, census. George's eldest son was named William, probably after George's father. In 1860 Kansas Territory, Lykins, George is listed next to Benjamin Tharp b abt 1794 VA. I believe Benjamin is George's uncle, brother of William, and son of Polly (with sons) in 1820 census. There are several of us researching this relationship so I'm hoping you may have found further information since you posted.
