That’s not unusual though from what I understand the census takers changed spellings and other things such as race, etc. If it is the same as your forefather, I traced him back to George and Sarah Sparks. I’ll keep looking and post what I find~ Good luck to you too!! 🙂 Greydove

    Hey Greydove,

    Found this Sparks tree that lists my line to Nathan…Haymond’s father. I contacted the owner to see if he has more family info:) Here’s the link…

    Wow, Shirley! I am amazed at this research. And starting with the 1st generation James Sparks~this is who I am trying to tie my 4th Greatgrandmother to as a brother ~they are 10 yrs apart in age and were born in and lived in the same places. Also, if they were siblings~parents were George and Sarah. (One of my brick walls~oh~no!) Funny, I also noticed a Bailes m into the line in early 1900s in Nicholas Co WV~he has to be kin~thats my Greatgrandma Bailes b place. Oh Shirley, I am so happy for you and I know we are kin~ I believe George W Sparks was born in 1740/50 and possibly was a rev war solder. Don’t know what Sarah’s maiden name was~but am looking for their info and to tie Mary Elizabeth Sparks to your James. Keep me posted and I will you ~likewise~~Later~ 🙂 Greydove~^~

    Children

    1. James E. SPARKS b: 1782 in Pendleton, Virginia ~~Now if we can find the right tree that lists them together as siblings, I think we will be able to confirm the link. Then, Sara(h)’s maiden name, well, that could be another mountain to climb, but, anyway, I read that lineage you posted a little closer, and I couldn’t believe there were Fitzwaters, Fosters, and Martins, as well as Bailes, married into Sparks. It made me realize more than ever, how families moved in groups and cross~married up and down the tree, you know? More later~~Greydove:) ~^~

    Thanks Greydove. And, yep, definitely cousins through the Summers.

    I also came across a thread that you posted about going to the Lebanon Pow Wow back in August of this year. I didn’t go to it, but my mom worked the front gates both days.

    Hi Greydove,

    Sounds good. I’ll will have to remember to check the schedule around that time next year. Everybody in this house plays some sort of ball (baseball, softball, football), so spring through fall we are pretty busy, which is why I tend to post more on here in the wintertime. I have never went to a Powwow before. My mom has asked me before to go with her (last weekend they even had a Christmas thing in Lebanon she asked me about). I don’t know, just never went.

    Talk to ya later,

    Stacey
