Squint Shot 080911

Thomas G. Sharp, b. Sept. 9, 1852, d. Mar. 26, 1925, and
Emma Sharp, b. July 9, 1860, d. Apr. 23, 1945. I am still working my way through microfilm for the biography I am working on and have not made it up to 1925, so I do not have an obituary for Thomas Sharp at this point -- at some point I will find it.

In the meantime, I did find this obituary in 1901 --

Suddenly Called~~Samuel Sharp died suddenly on Sunday morning at his home four miles north of Williamston. He had been ailing for some time, but was considered much better. He arose as usual on Sunday morning, but soon after expired. He was born at Northampton Shire, Eng., July 10, 1833, and came with his parents to the United States when only five years of age and settled in Unadilla, where he grew to manhood and married Maria A. Chalker Oct. 12, 1856, and to them were born seven children, six of whom are still living, one of the sons, Herman Sharp, living one mile south of this place. He removed to the farm where he died in 1870. He was a tender father, loving husband and a kind neighbor. He was made a Mason at this place in 1867 and was buried under the auspices of the order at his request.

The funeral services were held at the Congregational church at Williamston on Tuesday forenoon and were largely attended.

Does anyone know if this might have been Thomas Sharp's father?
