I am looking for info on Mary Ellen Sharpe married to John McCollum of Scotland.....Mary is said to be from Northern Ireland, Orange Section. They had at least 4 children, all of which I believe were born in Michigan USA. They are James (b 1865), Mary Ellen, John and Agnes. I believe that John and Agnes died young of TB. I believe that John was born in Scotland in Jun of 1845 but am not sure. My family line is down through James McCollum whose 2nd marriage was to Daisy Mae Brown. James was also known as Diamond Jim and Silks. He is said to have been a bit of a brawler and sang/danced in taverns for a living at some point. I would LOVE any information that anyone might have about this family, especially the Sharpe side. It is said that the Sharpe family owned a castle and that at one time the Michigan newspapers advertised for the heirs.
