I am really stuck on my 3rd great grandmother. Her name is Matilda or Liddia Jones. She was born 22 Nov 1843 in Buncombe,North Carolina. She died 3 Jan 1913 in Asheville, Buncombe,North Carolina. Her first husband was David Legg. He was born 14 June 1842 in Fairmont,Gordon,Georgia. He died 6 Aug 1862 in Richmond,Virginia during the Civil War. They were married on 6 June 1861 in Gilmer,Georgia. Her second husband was William Sharp. He was born 8 May 1839 in Buncombe,North Carolina. He died 6 Oct 1909 in Asheville, Buncombe,North Carolina. They were married on 25 Dec 1865 in Gilmer,Georgia. They had 8 children: John W H Sharp(1867-Before 1880) Harriet Elizabeth"Hattie" Sharp(1869-1923) Robert Robertson Sharp(1872-1937) Ida Telesta Sharp(1874-1934) Harly P Sharp(1878-?) Charly B Sharp(1880-?) Edward Waco Sharp(1881-1961) Marguerite or Margaret Augusta"Maggie" Sharp(1885-1962) All the children were born in Georgia. On her childrens Death Certificates she's listed as Matilda Jones. Her marriage records list her as L.M. Jones and L.M. Legg. On all the Census records but 1910 she's listed as Liddia,Lidia or Lydia. The 1910 Census lists her as Matilda Sharp. She's buried in Alexander Chapel United Methodist Church Cemetery with William and their daughter Harriet. I CAN NOT figure out who her parents are or William Sharps parents either. If anyone can help me with this information on her or William I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
