To the above name, we are pleased to accord a space in this volume; he was born in Ireland in 1814, and is a son of William and Jane (Ginn) Sharp, who were both natives of Ireland where they lived and died. John was the only child born to them; he was raised to farming, and in 1833, emigrated to United States and located in Piqua, this county, where he, in 1852, married Sarah A.
