Rev Vincent T. A Allentharp
Birth: Nov. 18, 1760
Virginia, USA
Death: Sep. 24, 1825
Dry Branch
Twiggs County
Georgia, USA

The historical marker outside Vincent's house reads:
"REV. VINCENT A. THARP HOME
This historic house built for Rev V. A. Tharp by his sons, John and Charnick with slave labor in 1809 is the oldest know house in Twiggs County, then Wilkinson. The Tharp family, who occupied this house-in-the-wilderness in 1811, helped to supply Baptist leadership in the surrounding area and the Ebenezer Baptist Assn. Baptist notables were guests in this hospitable home - Revs Polhill, Franklin, Ross, Rhodes, Baker, McGinty, Mercer and others. In 1832 the property was sold to John Parker for $600. Later owners have been Joe Burkett, P.W. Martin and American Clay Co., and Stone Creek Baptist Church. The hand hewn timbers and logs remain in this pioneer landmark."
While a child, Vincent's family had moved from VA to SC where he met his wife, Sarah Pierson. During the Revolutionary War his father and brothers joined the British, Vincent - a teenager - joined the Americans, under Gen. Francis Marion. He learned some blacksmith trade and the gunsmith trade.
His original burial site was at the first Stone Creek Church on the Bibb/Twiggs county line. In March 1987 it was discovered that vandals had dug up the grave. Thankfully they hadn't dug deep enough to disturb the 162-year-old coffin. For safety reasons, the family had the graves removed and reburied in the Davis Family Cemetery near Macon, GA.
