Robert Milton Sharp, was born in Pennsylvania, coming from a long line of purely American ancestry. His father was a soldier in the war of the Rebellion, serving with a Pennsylvania regiment connected with the Army of the Potomac; his grandfather served through the war of 1812 under General Harrison; and his great-grandfather was a soldier under General Washington in the war of the Revolution. Thus is the name of Sharp connected with every history-making epoch of this great nation. Some of the name remained in Pennsylvania, some went to Kentucky, and one, the father of Robert M., came to Kansas, settling in Labette county.
Anna Frances Burns, was of English descent, and was born in Canada. However, she came with her parents to the United States when but a mere child and was reared in Illinois. Later the family moved to Ottawa, Kansas, and it was there that Robert M. Sharp first met her, and they were married in 1874. In 1881 they moved to Carthage, Missouri, where Mr. Sharp engaged in business. Mrs. Sharp was a member of the Congregational church, and was active in church work. At her death Mr. Sharp made his home with his daughters. He survived his beloved wife but a few years, and their remains now rest side by side in beautiful Park Cemetery in Carthage.
