Surnames: Heifner, Sharp, Martin, Lowe, Addison
This book has no cover, and no index, and no author. I bought it on Ebay; it just has the insides, but it is full of Indiana biographies. I am not researching this family, just thought I would share. I do not know anymore about these families or these surnames. NOTE: I don’t know if there is any additional mention of this family in the book, it has no index. I do not want to sell this book. I am typing the biographies from it.

He has also taken special graduate work at the University of Minnesota.

Hello,

I have quite a lot of information on the Sharpe family. From your other post, I see you are looking for Patsy Stephenson. I know her personally. She too works on genealogy. She has shared old photos with me.

My great grandfather was the brother of Lestie - Blount Sharpe from Arlington, Rush County, Indiana.
