George and Anna Maria (Loy) Sharp (Possible sister of Martin Loy to America 1741)
Vetta (Loy) Johnson, daughter of George Tate Loy (grandson of Martin Loy's son George), had once written in a letter of her father having met descendants of George and Anna Maria (Loy) Sharp when he was a boy. She knew that they were related, and theorized that Anna Maria [or Anna Marie] Loy was daughter of Martin Loy, despite family tradition that his daughter Mary had married George Foust. However, Anna Maria's children's and grandchildren's ages seem to be in the same generation as that of Martin Loy's children and grandchildren. Noah Loy, born 4 years after Vetta, descended from Martin's son John. From what he had learned through family tradition, Martin Loy had a brother-in-law named "Sharpe." It's been my theory that Anna Maria [a/k/a Anna Marie] (Loy) Sharp was Martin's sister. Her husband was named in Augusta Co., VA records with adjoining land to Martin Loy, showing connection even in the 1750s.
