Comments: Jesse Kersey Sharpless (Nee: ) | PA United States | 1851-1900 | Comments: This picture of Mr. Jesse Kersey Sharpless appears on page 701 of the Rural New Yorker, vol.LV, no.2439, 24 October 1896. There is a biographical description of him on page 702 of that volume. Please see that reference for more details. Jesse was born in Catawissa, Columbia County, PA, Sept 3, 1818 in the old 'high house' at the plant of the Catawissa Fiber Company, which was then owned by his father. His parents were Benjamin and Harriet Bousall Sharpless. They were both Quakers from PA. As a boy Jesse worked in the paper mill for his father. December 22, 1842 he married Mary Margaret Harder. They had at least two children: Ambrose H. Sharpless and Charles C. Sharpless. Jesse was interested in horticulture and small fruits and is the originator of the Sharpless Strawberry. That is all the information I have on this picture. I am not researching this line, just saw the photo and thought I'd post it.
