Looking for ancestors of Howard Sharpley b 2/1881, I believe in DE or PA. He married Edith Van Arsdale b 8/1882. Their children's names are: Elaine, Phyllis, Ronald, Thelbert, Emma Faye, and Wayne.

Gayle, I have your branch of the Sharpley family on my family tree, presuming your father Ernest Allen Sharpley was born 10.1.1927 and died 14.10.1990. Your grandfather was Arthur Ernest Sharpley (not Allen Ernest as you say. He was born 10.2.1891 in Geelong, Victoria, Australia and died 4.7.1975 in Tacoma, NSW, Aust. Arthur Ernest was the fifth of six children of Robert James Sharpley and Emily Jane Lockwood. Robert left his wife and family and went to South Africa around the turn of the century and I have been unable to find his death in South Africa or Australia. Robert's parents were Arthur Kent Sharpley and Margaret Paisley. Arthur Kent Sharpley was born in Co. Tipperary, Ireland in 1893 and came to Victoria with his wife in 1858. His parents, Joseph Burton Sharpley and Ann Kent had previously emigrated to Victoria in 1853 with three unmarried daughters. Suggest you e-mail me at willsas@stmichaels.vic.edu.au for further information.

I posted the previous reply some time ago. Since then my name has changed from Sandra Will to Sandra Matheson and my e-mail address has changed to smatheson@stmichaels.vic.edu.au
I also made a mistake in my earlier message - Arthur Kent Sharpley was born in about 1824, not 1893.

I am interested in the names of the three unmarried daughters as I believe my ggrandmother's middle name was Burton and her father's name was John or James. She was supposedly born in VA

Surnames: Sharpley
The 3 unmarried daughters are not your ggrandmother. They were Anna, Susan, Eliza Sharpley who all died in Australia. Perhaps your ggrandmother may be a sister of my ggrandfather, Joseph Burton Sharpley. I have no info on his siblings. Joseph was born in abt 1793 in Kildare, Kings Co., Ireland. He married Ann Kent and they came to Australia in 1853. Joseph's parents were Arthur Sharpley (born 1745/46, died 10 Oct 1842 Modreeny, Co Tipperary, Ireland) and Esther Burton (born 1751, died 25 May 1824 Modreeny, Co Tipperary, Ireland).

Sandra,
I wonder if these Sharpley's are yours?
Arthur Sharpley (B 1817) married Mary Schulze (B1824)
Daughters: Catherine, Margaret, Jane, Ann and Hannah.
They were cousins of my Thomas Cooke Fitzgerald Hayes (Ireland), but I don't know how they were connected.
Regards,
Judith

I don't know whether or not these Sharpley's are connected to my family, but with the name Arthur Sharpley it is certainly possible. Many thanks - I'll keep a note of these details.
