New info from Civil War pension record shows Martha Jane Fenn married George O Sharp in 1853 at Lorraine, Jefferson County, New York. Martha Jane died in 1862, George in 1864, and the guardian for the two daughters was William B Fenn of Lyme, Jefferson, New York, who was probably Martha Jane's father. It also appears that Martha Jane's mother was named Delilah.
