Mary Sharpe was born in 1761 in Cecil County, Maryland. [1]

Mary Sharpe was born 22 Jun 1761 in Cecil County, Maryland. She was the daughter of Thomas Sharpe (1718-1785). While her FindaGrave profile places her as the daughter of Elizabeth Gillespie (1720- 1759) or (1722–1765)[2], her date of birth places her as the daughter of Thomas' second wife, Mary McFarren.

Mary Sharpe was born before 1766. [3]

She was the daughter of Thomas Sharp, Jr, born 11 November 1718 in Ceil County, Maryland, and died there 11 November 1785.

Lisle presents Mary's mother as Thomas' first wife Elizabeth Gillespie, born 1720 and died 14 December 1759. However, since Mary was born 2 years after Elizabeth's death, she was the daughter of the second wife, Mary McFerrin.

Family Bible

I recently found the Family Bible belonging to Jerusha King Feimster in my grandmother's dresser (she died in 1981). The Bible was published in 1837. The first recorded births are of William Feimster (born 1759) and of his wives Mary Sharpe and Jerusha King. The births continue with the children of William and Mary. Then the children of their son John (married Margaret Barclay King) are listed. Anyone interested in the information contained may E-Mail me at [5]
