Descendants of William Greasy Bill Sparkman


13. Sampson Sparkman

Buried in Duncan Cemetary, Hueysville, Ky. Found his date of birth and date ofdeath recorded in the family Bible of Lora Jane Allen Sparkman.
1900 Ky. census shows Sampson as Samuel Sparkman and shows he and Nancy as being married for15 years.

Nancy McDaniel had a child before she married Sampson Sparkman.The child's name was Polly Perry. Her father was a Perry but first name is notknown. Sampson raised Polly as one of his own children.

Nancy Jane McDaniel

Buried in the Duncan Cemetary, Hueysville, Ky. Found her date of birth recordedin the family Bible of Lora Jane Allen Sparkman. 1860 Breathitt Co.,Ky. censuslists Nancy, age 9, in the household of Wiley and Elizabeth McDaniel. The 1880 census lists Nancy, age 20, in the household of her parents.

The 1900 Knott Co.,Ky. census lists Samuel? Sparkman 33, Head, married 15 years. Wife, Nancey, age 31, wife, born 8/1868 (which is incorrect--she was born in 8/1860). Itappears both Sampson (Samuel) and Nancy took a few years off their ages in thiscensus. Children listed are Henderson at age 13, Roach B. at age 10, Alley F.at age 9, Hattie at age 7, William Mc. at age 4, and Rachel at age 2. All of these children are listed as sons and daughters. Polly and Florenda had left home by 1900. The child shown as Hattie is apparently Katie as it appears the name was misunderstood and the date of birth of 04/1893 is correct for Katie. Theinteresting child here is William Mc. born 01/1896. The child always known asKinnel was born 01/1896 so it is assumed that William Mc. and Kinnel are one and the same person. It would be difficult to misunderstand Kinnel for Williamso I am not sure what his given name was. The biggest gaps in births is from 1886 to 1890 and from 1898 to 1902. It is not known if children were born in these time periods that may have died.

I have found a marriage record for Sampson and Nancy Sparkman which shows they were married in 1895. It is in my papers and I would have to look it up to get the exact date of marriage. He showsin the 1900 census that they had been married for 15 years which would put thedate of marriage 1885. Nancy was living in her parents household in 1880, at age 20.

It would appear that Nancy and Sampson set up housekeeping sometime before they were married. Two children, Henderson and Florenda were born prior to the actual marriage in 1895. But my mother always told me that many couplesdid exactly that waiting for someone to come around and marry them.

I do notknow the exact date of Nancy McDaniel Sparkman's date of death. Her head stone was never amended to show a date of death.

Nancy had a child in 1879,Polly Perry. She never married Polly's father. Her second child, Florenda Sparkman, was born in Feb.1880 before the 1880 census would have been taken. Neither Polly nor Florenda are shown with Nancy in the 1880 census.

The 1910 census lists him with his namereversed--as Sparkman Logan. Therefore, look under Logan and not Sparkman. Logan is buried in the Hicks Cemetary on Ball Creek Rd., Knott Co.,Ky. Tombstone shows birthdate as 1858 but he gives 1854 in 1900 census. Believe date he gavewould most likely be correct.
