I do have some information on George Douglas Tharp and his two wives and their children. I have death certificates and obituaries for George and some of his children including Estella May, and William Joseph.

His death certificate gave the name of his father Joseph Tharp but not his mother. Her name was Elizabeth Capp and she was the second wife of Joseph Tharp. His first wife was Delilah Wilkey who had died in Jefferson Co., IL before Aug 1854 when he and Elizabeth married.

There were eight children born during his first marriage: John D., Mary Jane, Elizabeth, William H., Melvina, Stephen G.H., Joseph N., and Brunetta.

He and Elizabeth had three children: Elnora, George Douglas, and Charles Howard. I believe Elnora died as a child. Joseph died before 19 Jan 1875 when his will was presented for probate in Jefferson Co., IL.

Elizabeth Capp Tharp was my great-grandfather's sister. I have quite a lot of information on the Capp(s) line going back before the Revolutionary War. I really haven't done any research on the Tharp line other than the children.
