CEMETERY (WILLIAM ROBERDS, JR.)-MAURY COUNTY
SHARP, William R. (Roberds), (20 Dec) 1815 - (3 Oct) 1862. (son of William Roberds & Isabella Roberts Sharp.) 2225
SHARP, Sarah McGuire, died 1890. (wife of William Roberds Sharp; dau. of Thomas & Ann T. Lee McGuire: note: d.d. 1890 is positioned in the normal place of a death date, not the original stone.) 2226
The stone for Sarah was evidently placed in this cemetery after Mr Fred Hawkins visited and documented this cemetery in 1986. Sarah McGuire Sharp is the wife of William Roberds Sharp. This couple evidently were the original settlers in this area whereby this cemetery was founded. It is known the Sharps were buried in unmarked graves here and lived just a short distance from this cemetery.
