Mary Ann Harrison was married to Thomas William Sharp. She was born Sept. 20, 1861 in England, Woulds. England. Died Aug. 1936 in Grand Prarie, ALberta, Cananda.

As for 'William SHARP' I know he married his first cousin Elizabeth Amelia Sharp. He also wrote under the name 'Fiona Macleod'.

William Sharp 1855-1905 was a very secretive man, with some say, a duel personality. Writing, also as Fiona Macleod. It wasn't till his death on a visit to Sicily, that the secret, cleverly kept for 10 years was revealed. I do know he had a sister called Mary Beatrice, (in who's handwriting a lot of the Macleod letters are written). The many letters of 'Fiona Macleod' were transcribed in America and as of late last year reside at the University of London at The Centre for English studies. Not published but available for viewing.
Contact the University of Wisconsin, where the transcriptions took place,they may have some information.
Elizabeth Amelia wrote some memoirs and Steve Blamires wrote a biography called 'The little Book of Great Enchantment'
He and his wife Elizabeth published 'Lyra Celtica' an anthology, under their own names not long before he died.
As for his genealogy, I have no information apart from the fact he was born in the west highlands of Scotland and went to the university at Glasgow for a year.
