Some Interesting Things About George Byron Sparks, his wife Jerusha and their son Judson D. Sparks - his two wife's,  their daughter's Flora and her daughter Rose and Hattie and her daughter Ruby are all buried in the old Guinea Corners Cemetery, Huron County Ohio.


Carl Sparks married a Bernice Leak which was a neighbor of  Della Mae Southard and Perry Sparks.


Della Mae had a brother named Jesse Southard who was the mail man who brought her mail.


George Sparks married Jerusha Ann Draher/Dreher and George Sparks brother Judson married Emiline Draher/Draher. It is possible that Judson and Emiline settled in Indiana near Pleasant Lake according to some Sparks Genealogy that I have that is not in my direct line.  I have mostly posted my direct line but do have a Sparks Genealogy that was written by a Maude Eva Sparks born October 23, 1890. She is the daughter of George Frederick Sparks listed in the above Genealogy in Generation No.2 and Helen Gamble.
