Thomas Sparkman Sr. was in the Kentucky Regiment of the Confederate Army 13th Kentucky Cav.,Co.B--enlisted 09/09/1862. He died as the result of war injuries he received in 1862.

Nancy F. Owens

1870 Perry Co.,Ky census shows her as age 35 which would make her born about 1835 which is in line. It shows a child, Catherine, age 3 that we did not know about, therefore, it is assume she died at an early age. It lists our grandfather, Sampson as age 7 which is correct. Drucilla, Logan and Thomas are also in the HH but does not show Richard.

1880 Perry Co.,Ky census shows Nancy with Drucilla, Thomas, Sampson in the HH and two children by her 2nd husband, Lewis Gayheart. There children are shown as Elhanon, son age 6 and Rochenbors, son age 3. Catherine is not in the HH, assumed she died between 1870 and 1880.

15. Drucilla Sparkman

18. Catharine Sparkman

Catherine is listed in the 1870 Perry Co.,Ky census as age 3. Her name has never come up in the family,therefore, I assume she must have died at a very youngage. Did not know about this child until this census was found.

3. Ira Goff Sparkman

1900 Knott Co.,Ky.census shows: Sparkman, (illegible) M 76, Head, 3/1824 married 45 years Ky NC Ky. Salley 63, wife 7/1836 14/10 Ky VA Ky. Wesley 34, son 5/1866 married 8 years KyKyKy.

I believethe last 3 children listed are grandchildren and not his children. This censusrecord belongs to Ira Goff Sparkman because all the information and names match. If I interpret the numbers correctly, Sarah (Salley and Sarah were interchangable names) had 14 children total of which 10 were living as of this census.Indeed 14 children are listed on the family tree.
