Elizabeth Jane Sharp Bebout

Elizabeth Jane Sharp Bebout

Elizabeth Jane Sharp the daughter of Zachariah and Elizabeth Yoders Sharp, who was the son of Old Isaac and Mary Wolverton / Woolverton Sharp.

She married James Alexander Bebout in Washington County, PA. They had 2 children, Trolis and Sarah.

James Bebout was killed at the battle of Gettysburg in the Civil War. Elizabeth never remarried. Her obituary states that she eventually died of a broken heart. James' body was never recovered from the battle and she forever thought he would return.

The description given in Elizabeth's obit, she was "small, dark eyed, dark haired with quiet sophistication." Her memorial was written by her brother Manean Sharp.

The photo was copied from a tintype by one of my distant cousins in PA.

Elizabeth Sharp

This is only possibly Elizabeth Sharp Yoders. The photo was in an album from LaSalle County IL, so there is no positive identification because of no connection with the family. I have not been able to make a connection with my Pennsylvania family to Elizabeth Sharp or why the photo would have been in an album from Illinois. The photo was only identified as Elizabeth Sharp.
