About Elizabeth "Betsey" Dickerson

I'm not sure of why, do not remember at this time, Elizabeth's maiden name is Sharp instead of Allen.*

Elizabeth “Betsy” Sharp was one of 9 children born to Martha “Patsy” Sharp. Her father is believed to have been Joseph Allen, whom her mother married in 1846. *Apparently Elizabeth retained her mother’s surname as her maiden name, since her parents may not have been married at the time of her birth.

So far, no marriage record has been found to prove Elizabeth (Sharp) Dickerson was married to Greenberry Creekmore. If it did occur it would probably have happened after her divorce from John William Dickerson in 1878. Can anyone help?

Elizabeth “Betsy” (Sharp) (age 17 - 18) and John William Dickerson were married February 17, 1856 in Campbell County, TN and to this union 7 children were born:

  • George William Dickerson
  • Martha Jane Dickerson
  • James Alfred Dickerson
  • Mary Parsadia Dickerson
  • Alexander Dickerson
  • Hester Ann Dickerson
  • Marion Francis Dickerson

John William and Elizabeth “Betsy” (Sharp) Dickerson divorced 3/21/1878.
