Land Patent of William Sharp
Hello again D Sharp,
Per your request of further information about the location of William Sharp’s land patent, the following, although peripheral, may be of some help.
Excerpt from: “The Virginia Magazine of History and Biography” Vol. XIII, No. 1, July 1905, page 58.)(See also VA, Land Patent Book 2, p. 27)
“24 Jul 1645 patent: John Baugh, Gent., of 100 acres in Bermodo Hundred, in Henrico County, 80 acres, part thereof, bounded on the north by the land lately belonging to John Arundel, S. E. by the Bay of Appomattox, W. S. W. by Powell’s Creek and N. E. by Conecock Path; 4 acres bounded on the N. N. E. by James River, E. S. E. by the land of James Usher, S. S. E. by the land of Michaell Maysters, W. N. W. by the land of William Sharp; 16 acres lying in Bermodo Hundred Neck, bounded on the south by the land of Joseph Royall, N. N. E. by the swamp, and N. W. by the land of Michaell Maysters (sic).”

RE: William Baugh Sr. and Elizabeth Sharpe
Hello D Sharp,
Thank you for the message. The ages of William and Elizabeth Sharp's two sons, Isack (Isaac) and Samuell (Samuel), are reversed in two of my sources. On page 631 of "Virginia Immigrants and Adventurers, 1607-1635" by Martha W. McCartney, 2007, their ages are given as Isack (age 2 months) and Samuell (age 2). You are correct that on page 12 of "Adventurers of Purse and Person, Virginia, 1607-1624/5" by John Frederick Dorman, 4th Ed., Vol. I, 2004, their ages are reversed. Over the years, I have found only a few errors in Dorman's books and usually feel confident with his research findings and as a result have changed their ages in the bio of William Baugh, Sr. Thank you for pointing out this discrepancy. I also took the opportunity to add more information to the bio including some more about property ownership. Good luck with your research.

Sharp family
Hi, If you would be willing, I would really like to talk to you about William M Sharp's family. I believe that my great-great grandmother's first husband was Robert Sharp and that they had a son named Edgar M Sharp. I also have a picture of 5 men labeled 'Robert Sharp's brothers'. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.

Thank you for letting us know that we helped you find a relative. This is how my wife and I became photo volunteer's. We were looking for our ancestors and found where others had entered some of our family members. A few had photo's most did not. We entered photo requests and soon our requests started being fulfulled. We now not only are photo volunteer's but we have entered entire cemeteries. We really like to find small family cemeteries, photograph and enter them. Sometimes we search for days trying to find one. Other times it's like they want to be found, and are found so easily. We hope that family finds everyone we enter. If you have information on your great-great grandparents, we would be happy to add it to their memorial or we will transfer their memorial to you so you can add information. Either way you can add pictures to their memorial.

Welcome to Find-A-Grave, if we can be of any help just ask. Sue & Doug Ward
