I am researching my surname Grebbien back to its roots in Germany. Heinrich (Henry) Grebbien and his wife Sophia Creter migated to Cleveland, Ohio in about 1870 from Germany.
I am also researching my mothers side of our family. This will include the Sharps, DeHarts, and Adams. My grandparents Joseph Marion Sharp and Mary Angeline DeHart were married in and raised their family in Erie, Neosho County, Kansas.
Joseph was the son of John Henry Sharp (b. 1841 KY) and Lucy Ann Chamberlain (b. 1845 Ill) and was born in 1877 in Layfayette, Indiana. Research has found very little on this family line.
Mary was the daughter of John Soloman DeHart and Martha Francis Adams of Allendale, Worth County, Missouri.
The Adams family were with the first pioneers to Missouri Territory, arriving in Cooper County about 1815. Later they settled in Jackson County, later to move and pioneer Worth County. Historically there was an Adams Village and School.
The DeHarts had their roots in the 1700's in Berks County, Pennslvannia. In about 1815 George W. Dehart migated with his family to Circleville, Pickaway County, Ohio. As early pioneers, they moved on to Fountain County, Indiana and then on to Coles County, Illinois where they made their final home. My forefather Alexander DeHart moved on to Worth County, Missouri.
In my research I have as much as possible included information that can be documented. I have also included information on unrelated individuals for two reasons: first to help me eliminate unrelated relationships and second to help others in their research. I have made a bold assumption that George W. DeHart was the son of Jacob DeHart because of the research I have done on Berks County, Amity Township but I do not have any documentation to prove that relationship. I will appreciate any corrections to my research if those corrections are based on documents. I have gone far beyond the scope of my family lineage but have included that information so that it may help others. Finally I wish to thank all of you who have helped to provide a complete Family Lineage--especially for the DeHarts.
