Researching my Grandmother's Tharp(e) family in Hart County. Her name was Grace Louise Tharp born in Bonnieville, Hart County KY on 18 Nov 1895 to William G. & Mary Ellen (Shaw) Tharp(e). William G. Tharp was married twice . . . 1st to Mary L. Collins on 1 Dec 1868 in Jefferson County KY. They had three children: William G., Jr and Alexander; both born in Jefferson County & a Sarah Elizabeth possibly born in Hart County & who reportedly died in a school fire between 1875-1887. William G. Tharp(e) married 2nd to Mary Ellen Shaw before Apr 1880. They had 8 children including my grandmother. I have tracked & located all my grandmothers full siblings and only one of her half-siblings. William G. Tharp(e) died, presumably in Hart County, between 1900-1910. I think his father may have been Gabriel Tharp(e) born 1822. Looking for what actually became of William, his first wife and children Sarah Elizabeth & William Jr. from first marriage.
