      [Blaine appears to be his surname. Margaret's mother-in-law was Margaret Blaine Sharp, so Blaine is a family name. In 1860, he's listed as Stephen B. Sharp, 20, laborer. Note that this dwelling is 2 farms away from Levan & James Wanless' farms, so this is probably the right Margaret Sharp, and her husband is apparently dead.]
