Biographical and Genealogical History of Morris County New Jersey. Illustrated. Vol. II., Lewis Publishing Company, New York and Chicago, 1899.

One of the progressive and well known members of the dental profession in Morristown, William Green SHARP was born at Budd Lake, Morris county, New Jersey, on the 6th of September, 1869, a son of John B. and Emma Louise (GREEN) SHARP, both of whom also were born in Morris county. Jesse N. SHARP, the grandfather of William G., was born in German Valley, Morris county, in 1815, and died in 1895. He was of German ancestry and his father, J. B. SHARP, was an early settler at German Valley. John B. SHARP died more than twenty years ago, and his widow married Dr. H. B. ANDREWS, of Morristown, in 1880, and is at present residing in this city.

William Green SHARP, whom this mention immediately concerns, was reared in Morris county, where his early educational discipline was obtained in the district schools, and supplemented by a course of study at Morris Academy. Upon leaving the latter institution he went to New York and entered the dental college connected with New York University, at which he was graduated in 1892. For a few years after receiving his diploma Dr. SHARP practiced his profession in Freehold, New Jersey, and then, in 1894, he returned to the county of his nativity, locating in Morristown, where he soon built up a remunerative practice and gained for himself an excellent reputation for his distinct ability in this line of enterprise. He is a bright young man, well versed in the technicalities of his calling, and brings to his work an enthusiasm and intellectual attainments that have placed him in the front rank among his fellow practitioners. He is a popular member of the New Jersey State Dental Association and the Central Dental Association.
