References
  1. Federal census records of 1850 through 1880 give her estimated birth year variously as 1809, 1810, and 1811 (twice). Perhaps 1811 is correct. If that is so, she would have only been 16 at the time of her marriage. Of the many families in the upper Hudson River area who appear in the 1800 and 1810 census records headed by Andrew or Andries Sharp, it is not clear which might be her family. So, we don't really know where she was born.
  2. No evidence that any Scherp/Sharp family resided in Schodack or were members of Schodack Dutch Reformed Church.
