Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1786
Fairfax County
Virginia, USA
Death: Jul. 7, 1826
Nelson County
Kentucky, USA

Daughter of a Virginia Planter, Ann and her mother moved to KY to live with relatives after her father and sister died. About 1819, Ann claimed she was seduced by Colonel Solomon P. Sharp who promised her marriage then deserted her. She gave birth in 1820 to an illegitimate son who later died in 1822. In 1824, she married Jeroboam Orville Beauchamp who confessed to stabbing to death Colonel Sharp on 7 NOV 1825. Jeroboam and Ann attempted double suicide twice, but he was hanged on the gallows and Ann bled to death about the same time. This Kentucky Tragedy was recorded in many writings and has influenced melodramas concerning the honor of Southern womanhood.
