14. James Franklin SHARPE was born on Jun 3 1834 in Alexander, Iredell County, North Carolina. He died on Apr 21 1887 in Iredell County, North Carolina (was Rowan Co.). Often listed as Frank Sharpe He was married to Exah Elizabeth (Exie) KEVER on May 1 1856.
15. Exah Elizabeth (Exie)
KEVER was born on Jul 23 1836 in Iredell County, North Carolina (was
Rowan Co.). She died on Mar 21 1929 in Little Rock, Arkansas. One of Exie's
brothers (Calvin, Artemus, Nelson, or Davidson) was Homer Keever's father. He
communicated with Hazel during her data gathering. I think I remember reading
that he died probably in the 1980's.
Exie was living in Cleburne County with her Daughter and Son in Law when the 1910 census was taken (Shelton O. Norton and Martha Ann).
Exie was living in Cleburne County alone when the 1920 census was taken. She showed her father to be a native of Germany, but that may refer to her grandfather or her great-grandfather.
There is a letter to E. E. Sharpe from Liz Sharpe. It is signed 'Your Sister', but I can't make the connection. It is dated 9/2/1896
