 Includes NotesNotes for Isaac C. Sharp:
1. According to "Know Your Relatives: The Sharp's" written by Genevieve E. Peters, "It is the belief of many that the progenitor was one Isaac Sharp, who, with three other Sharp's, came to this country on the ship "Queen Elizabeth" arriving at the Port of Philadelphia on September 16, 1738." The "three other Sharp's" arriving with him were: Ernst Sharp (Scharp), age 39, Jno. Georick Sharp (Johan Sharpe), age 16, Georick Sharp ( George Sharp), age 36.

2. Sharpe, Basil Ray "Bud": "Migrations of the Descendants of Isaac C. and Margarette A. (Webber) Sharp": Sharp Points, Vol. 17, #1, September 2001, page 4 - 7.

"The Sharp family we are following this month came from the Palatinate, Germany, to Pennsylvania. This second generation migrated to North Carolina. One of the sons, soon after marrying, moved west into Tennessee. Their youngest child was born in Virginia and, in later life, the couple moved to Ohio, where they died. The second son raised his family and died in North Carolina. The third son lived in North Carolina and Tennessee. Two of his children are recorded as born in Virginia. By the fourth generation, this family was well implanted in Tennessee, with individuals moving on into Indiana, Ohio, alabama, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, and South Carolina. It is strangea that none are known to have settled in Kentucky, although there were migrations through the state.
"FIRST GENERATION: Isaac C. Sharp was married to Margarette A. Webber about 4 years before immagrating to Philadelphia (1-1 on map) from Palatinate, Germany in 1738. Isaac died in Lancaster, PA (1-2). Their children were: Peter; Thomas; Johan Heinrich/Henry, b 4 May 1735; Margaret; Veronica; Isaac, b. 1740; Barbara; Rebecca; and John Joseph, b. 1753.
"SECOND GENERATION: We know the brothers, Henry, Isaac and John Joseph Sharp removed to Orange Co., NC (2-1) by 1761. The earliest record I have of this family in NC is Henry's marriage to Barbara Graves in 1759. Henry owned land in Botetourt Co., VA. (2-2) and Montgomery Co., VA (2-3), where the family lived from about 1782 to 1789. They left Virginia for Eastern Tennessee about 1789. He was living in the "Territory South of the River Ohio" in 1795, and the next year this became Knox County, TN (2-4). In 1796, Grainger Co. was formed from part of Knox and Hawkins Counties, and Henry was shown as living in Grainger Co. (2-5). In 1801, Anderson Co. (2-6) was formed from part of Knox Co., and Henry lived there until 1805, when he migrated to Preble Co., OH (2-7).
"Isaac (Jr.) married Maria Philopena Graves abt. 1760 in Orange Co., NC. They had 6 children before Isaac died in 1782, all born in Orange Co. Isaac and Maria, who died in 1815, are buried in Old Stoner's Church Cemetery in Orange Co., NC.
"The third brother for which I have good information, John Joseph Sharp, married Phyllis Efland, 1778, and lived only 3 or 4 years in Orange Co., NC before moving to Montgomery Co. VA. The last record of John in this county is dated 1801, so it must have been about this time the family moved to eastern TN. He died in 1830 in Anderson Co., TN.
"THIRD GENERATION: Henry (son of Isaac) moved more that a few times during his lifetime. Children were born in Orange Co., NC; Botetort Co, VA; and Knox Co., TN. Sons, Henry, Jr., George W., and William "Station Bill" died in Union Co., TN (3-1). Henry, Jr. had married in Claiborne Co., TN in 1822. William's second marriage was in Anderson Co., TN.

Daughters, Catherine and Anna Elizabeth followed their parents to Preble Co., OH.

Only the oldest child, Sarah, wife of Tobias Tillman, remained in TN. A 12th child, Eva, was born in OH. The Tillman's and many of their in-laws and friends, including Sharps, made a difficult a6-week trip from TN to resettle in OH. Catharine's sister, Anna Elizabeth, married Frederick Miller.
