Judge Nelson SHARPE

The following information extracted from the Grayling, Crawford Co., MI Newspaper Avalanche. NOTE: The date at the end of each extract indicates the date of the publication:
-Judge SHARPE, while holding court at Gaylord, Tuesday, received a telegram announcing the death of his father, at Niles. Court was adjourned until Tuesday of next week. (28 Jan 1897)

-JUDGE SHARPE.
CANDIDATE FOR CONGRESSIONAL HONORS IN THE TENTH DISTRICT.
A MAN WHO WILL BRING HONOR TO HIMSELF, AND REFLECT CREDIT TO THE DISTRICT.
The announcement that Judge Nelson SHARPE, of this village, will enter the arena for congressional honors in the Tenth district to fill the vacancy caused by the death of Hon. R. O. CRUMP, will not be a surprise to those who have watched the public career of that gentleman during the past decade. Influential republican leaders in various parts of the district have had an eye on judge SHARPE for some time as a likely successor to Congressman CRUMP when the latter should lay down the duties and honors of congressional life. In fact the name of our candidate was brought before the last nominating convention in this district, but realizing that the proper time had not yet arrived for securing for him the nomination, the friends of Judge SHRPE gracefully allowed his name to be withdrawn from the contest, content to bide their time, and loyally supported the nominee.
The seeking of the nomination at this time is not wholly Mr. SHARPE's That the Judge "is in the hands of his friends," who will endeavor to land him in the vacant seat, would be nearer the truth, and in response to urgent requests and flattering letters received from party leaders in this judicial circuit and elsewhere, Mr. SHARPE announces himself a candidate for the position.
Nelson SHARPE was born in Northumberland county, Ontario, October 25, 1858, but is of American ancestry. His early education was received in the public schools of his native town, after which he was a successful teacher for five years. Choosing the profession of law as his life work, he took a preparatory course of two years' literary work at Belleville college, afterward spending five years at legal studies.
In 1885 Mr. SHARPE came to West Branch, and soon became impressed with the fact that Michigan offered better opportunities than those to be found in Canada. He went into the law office of Markey & Hall, and three months later was admitted to practice at the bar. He opened an office for himself and began to lay the foundation for a practice which rapidly became remunerative. Since that time the rapid advancement which has marked his public career has been enjoyed by but few men. He held several minor village offices, served as president in 1889, and the following year was elected prosecuting attorney of Ogemaw county, and reelected in 1892:
In the spring of 1893, when by act of legislature a new judicial circuit, comprising the counties of Otsego, Crawford, Roscommon, Ogemaw, Arenac and Gladwin was formed, the republican party began to cast about the district for a man qualified for the high honors of judgeship: Ogemaw presented the name of her favorite son, Nelson SHARPE, and it was upon him the honors were bestowed. His appointment to the bench was a most worthy and well merited one. Two years later Judge SHARPE was the unanimous choice of his party for election, and won at the polls with a handsome majority. his reelection in 1899 is a matter of history. The high tribute paid to his universal popularity in that election, however, was the fact that the opposition party placed no candidate in the field against him. In fact it might be said that during his eight years occupancy of the bench, Judge SHARPE has not made a personal enemy in the district. His rulings have been unbiased by political or other affiliations and unprejudiced to a marked degree. As a jurist the reputation he enjoys is not confined to the limits of his own circuit, but extends to all parts of the state.
To know Judge SHARPE personally, is to esteem and respect him. Few men posess the many sterling attributes found in his makeup. His eminent ability, unfailing devotion to duty, loyalty to friend and respect for foe, and his strong individuality combine to make him a true type of American citizenship. He is a student of political economy, conversant upon the important topics of the day and a fluent and forceful speaker. In the prime of manhood, he is a splendid type of mental and physical strength.
Such is the man whom we would present for congressional preferment. One who has worked his way to the pinacle of this profession and whose nomination and election would redound to the credit of the whole length and breadth of the Tenth district. He is the sort of a man in whom the people may safely place their reliance, and his nomination for representative in Congress would be most gratifying, not only to his wide circle of friends, but to all who delight in the qualities necessary to make a fit congressman. - West Branch Herald.

-Mrs. Nelson SHARP is still very low, but her condition at a late hour gives hope to the watchers at her bedside. Her two sons, Leo and Don came home from Ann Arbor last week, and are still here awaiting a change for the better in the patient's condition before they return. - West Branch Herald. (22 Mar 1906)

-MRS. NELSON SHARPE.
HER DEATH OCCURRED TUESDAY MORNING AT THE FAMILY HOME.
The continued illness of Mrs. Nelson SHARPE terminated in her death Tuesday morning at aobut two o'clock, her deeply afflicted husband, two sons and one sister being at her bedside when the final summons came.
Mrs. SHARPE was taken ill shortly after the holidays. Nothing serious was apprehended at first, but as days lapsed into weeks with no improvement in her condition, the gravest fears of the family physician, that the patient was suffering from an incurable cancer, appeared all too true. Dr. TUPPER, of Bay City, was summoned and his diagnosis confirmed that of the local physician. An operation was determined upon if such could be performed with safety. this was attmepted on the 18th inst. but owing to the progress of the growth and its delicate location, had to be abandoned, and the relatives were informed that the life of the patient was beyond the power of human hands to prolong but a few days at most.
The sufferer realized the seriousness of her ailment, but continued to hope almost to the last that she might be spared to enjoy the love of her dear ones and the comforts which surrounded her in the home which her hands had helped to beautify and her cheery disposition to adorn. And truly did she adorn that home where the fond husband and affectionate sons made her the idol of their hearts. During all her illness she never uttered a word of complaint, but accepted the inevitable with a Christian fortitude beautiful to witness. A comotose condition lasting for several hours on Monday night was broken just before her death by a short consciousness, when she bade the family a last farewell and lapsed into a peaceful slumber from which there was no waking.
Mrs. SHARPE was a woman beloved by all who knew her and a friend to everyone in need. Her life was full of kind acts and generous deeds which will always live in the memories of those who are left to morn her loss. She was a consistent member of Trinity Episcopal church, an ardent and dilligent worker of that society, and one of her last endeavors before being taken sick was days and nights of work spent to assist the Guild in their bazaar work. She belonged to several of the ladies fraternal socities and was ever a leader in the social circles.
Deceased was born in Northumberland county, Ont., 46 years ago. Her maiden name was Franc B. LEAN. She was married to Nelson SHARPE Oct. 21, 1883. In 1885 they came to West Branch and the family have since resided here. Three children were born to them, an infant daughter dying some years ago. Her two sons, Leo and Don beside the sorrowing husband survive her. Beside these she leaves four sisters and two brothers. They are Mesdames A. E. SHARPE of the Soo, Heenan and Nantell of Ont. and Russell of New York, Geo. and Chris. MORAN also of New York. Of the relatives present at the funeral ceremonies are Mesdames RANDALL, MORAN and P. H. LAWSON, of Ontario, sisters of Judge SHARPE and Mr. and Mrs. SHARPE of the Soo.
The funeral was held at the late home of deceased Thursday afternoon, conducted by Rev. F. C. O'MEARA and visiting clergymen. Floral tributes of a profuse and beautiful nature adorned the casked and the entire room in which the remains lay. these came from the church society, the lodges, and friends of the family in this city and from distant points. A long line of mourners formed the funeral cortege which escorted the remains to their resting place in Brookside cemetery. - West Branch Herald Times. (5 Apr 1906)

-IN HIGHEST COURT.
A Washington dispatch says: Leo SHARPE, of Bay City, son of Judge Nelson SHARPE, combined business with pleasure during his trip to Washington. Mr. SHARPE has just taken unto himself a wife, and the couple are in Washington seeing the sights. But the groom had another object in view in visiting the capital just at this time. Accompanied by Representatives TOWNSEND and YOUNG and, of course, his bride, SHARPE visited the supreme court of the United States Tuesday, and on motion of Mr. TOWNSEND, was admitted to practice before that august body. He can now return to his native city and tell the folks at home that he has authority to take their cases up to the highest tribunal in the land. - West Branch Herald Times. (10 Feb 1910)

His had been somewhat of an eventful life. He was left motherless when but two years of age, and lived with a sister at Maumee most of the time until he was 18 years of age, except a few years with his father in Canada, who had married, but died when the boy was but fourteen.
He was first married at Port Clinton, Ohio, to Miss Mary BURNOR and made his home in Ottowa County in that state, from where he enlisted in Co. I, 41st Ohio Inf., leaving his wife with three children, during his term of service. After his discharge they moved to Lucas County, and four years later his wife died leaving him with six children, the oldest being a girl of eleven years who was his housekeeper for a year when she too was taken away and the next one, ten years of age took her place at the head of the household. A year later he met Miss Mary T. BURNOR whom he married in Toledo in February 1880, who is now left to mourn his departure. The names of his two wives were identical, but were not related.
He moved to Blissfield, Michigan, and two years later came to this county, locating in Beaver Creek, which place has since been their home.
He had been a partial invalid for the past two years, his exposure in the army, and while hunting, which he had followed as a business with his advanced age telling upon his naturally robust constitution, until he had ceased active labor.
