Hi Brian,

Roderick was born in Virginia in 1754 and moved to North Carolina after 1795 and before 1800. He died in 1816 in Shelton Laurel the area where Sharp collected ballads in 1916.

The link on my site: http://www.bluegrassmessengers.com/shelton-family-madison-co-nc-sharp-efssa.aspx

I started working on the Sharp informants (see bottom of the page) but never got far. There's lineage for Rodrick and one of his son's Martin who many of the informants are related to.
