Adron Sharp came to Alabama from Virginia about 1818 - 1820 with his parents. Probably the offer of free or very cheap land in the area ready for statehood. He was married in 1828 to Martha Lamb. He apparently was a man of means, he had what some called a plantation on Brush Creek about three miles north of the Tennessee River. The old home has been moved and restored and is located on Alabama State road #20 about 4 miles west of Florence. Adron had a mill on the creek, and the union soilders came and burned his mill and took his horse and also him. The officer told the soilders if they even heard a gunfire to kill old man Sharp. I am not sure of all the workings of the mill. But it definately was a grist mill. This mill was burned by the yankee occupation forces, probably in late 1864. I heard recently the grinding wheel is still in the area of the mill.
