OLD SHARON CHURCH CEMETARY PICTURES
Pictures taken with an AGFA 1280 Digital Camera at 700x1000.
That's my name!
Old Sharon Church burned down sometime after 1948. Dad saw it standing when he
was 17. Not a trace of it there now. Originally built in 1824. A new church was
built up the road in 1914.
There are over half a dozen Copelands in this cemetary. I recognized three
generations of our relatives. My great grand parents, Charles Copeland and Ida
Ammons. My great-great grand parents on Ida's side, Andrew Jackson Ammons and
Elizebeth Jane Bryan. My great-great-great grand parents, William Copeland and
Nancy Bryans. William and Nancy had twelve children, one of them Elihu, my great-great
grandfather. I have yet to find Elihu's grave site. However, The deed of sale of Elihu's Farm
near Lawrenceville is here. The way property lines were described in 1872 is quite interesting!
