Looking for ancestors/descendants of this SHARP family, which left
Harrison County, Ohio for Oregon in 1848 [but due to Child #7, "a
surprise," actually made the trip in 1852 when he was old enough to
survive]. Cornelia's trail diary survived; some other documents. Children
#1 and #2 stayed fairly close to Lane County, Oregon; #3 died unmarried;
descendants of #4 have Ellensburg, Washington, as a home base; descendants
of #5 have Santa Paula, Ventura County, California; descendants of #7 the
San Francisco Bay Area.

SHARPS made the trip with John's sister, Judith Julia Ann (Sharp)
Turner, her husband Henry TURNER ("," in Marion County, named for
him; "Aumsville" named for his son-in-law Amos Davis), and their children,
but I think none of the Turner children left descendants.

Hunting for cousins,

Ann Sharp
