Mary-- I don't believe the James Sharp, age 33, in the 1870 Cass Co., Census could be "my James" (father of Caroline). Caroline Sharp was born 8 Nov 1840 and married Jeremiah A. Wilson 5 Apr 1862. Her Father, James Sharp, married a (?) Parson and probably had migrated to Worth/Nodaway Co., MO area.
--Thanks. Shirley

The James Madison SHARP who was mentioned among the heirs of Samuel SHARP was generally known in Cass Co. records as "Matt" SHARP. He m. 1) Julia SLUSHER and 2.) Mary S. HARDY.

Another James SHARP is found in the 1870 Census for Grand River, Cass Co. -- age 33, b. in Tenn., married to a Sallie. Although no daughter Caroline is listed in that Census, the children named are quite young, and therefore it's likely they had additional children. This may be the person you are looking for.

SHARP, JAMES

If you have any information on these people, I would greatly appreciate your help. Thank you! God bless! D.D.Schuman (deborahdschuman@hotmail.com)

Lee: When did Seletha Rider die? I am curious because I also have a Columbus Sharp who married my Martha Morris in Jackson County, Missouri. The Morris family and the Riders are related too. Please contact me so we can talk about these lines.

Valerie,

It's good to hear from you again. I believe we were in contact with each other 4-5 years ago.

Regarding, Seletha Rider. I have death date as 18 Mar 1853 in Jackson Co., MO. I do not have any primary sources for the date or location.

Kind Regards,
Lee

Lee: That date would fall in line with the marriage date to Martha Morris. Martha was the sister of George Morris who married Sarah "Sally" Rider. Also, I have a Cynthia "Letha" Morris as a sister to George and Martha. I have always wondered if these two were one and the same (Seletha and Cynthia "Letha") However, I also have Cynthia married to a John Carter in 1832 in Sumner, Tennessee. So, the puzzle goes on!

Do you have a birth date for Seletha? I was wondering if it might be close to Cynthia's (1815/1817 is all I have in KY) and no documentation to support.

I have traced Columbus and Martha to Napa, California through census records and info. I found on LDS Family Search site.

Please let me know your thoughts on this.

Valerie, the birth date that I have for Seletha (dau of John Rider and Nancy Morris) is 30 Nov 1830 in Sumner Co., TN.

Cynthia "Letha" Morris (married to John Carter): I have a birth date between 1815 and 1817 in Allen Co., KY and a marriage date of 7 Mar 1832 in Sumner Co., TN. (no primary sources, I have you, John Allen Rider, Barbara Westman, and the LDS as sources).

To be honest, I have not spent much time on this branch. A lot of information is available on the William Rider branch and I come from the George Rider line. The other 4 lines are more sketchy to me and have mostly secondary sources.

If I can help in anyway, please let me know.
