My family lineage:
I. Edward Sharp & Sarah McNeely (Edward is from Ballygawley, Co. Tyrone, N. Ireland)
II. Henry Sharp & Mary
III. Isaac Sharp Sr. & Elizabeth (Betsy) Ross
IV. John Sharp & Althea
V. Ewel Monroe Sharp & Florentine Victoria Brown
VI. Clarence Boyd Sharp & Cora Leona Tatum
VII. Ewuell William Sharp & Emmalee Anders (my grandparents)
I know the Sharps moved to Arkansas from the (Georgia/South Carolina/Mississipp areas) then on to Oklahoma. Some of this branch was accepted on the Cherokee Rolls as blood Cherokee. But my grandparents were not interested. I just want to know if Betsy Elizabeth Ross who married Isaac Sharp was really John Ross' sister. I know she married a Ross in the 1800's after Isaac passed away but it is never mentioned that she was married before on the history sites. Anyway the Sharp researchers seem to think that is where the Cherokee heritage came in.
I found the following on the internet. These probably are not the above Sharps but I thought it a possibility. Does anyone have any idea.
