Re: Zerah Sparks/ Francis Marion Sparks

In Reply to: Zerah Sparks/ Francis Marion Sparks by David Qualls of 39800

55.4 Francis Marion Sparks, son of Zerah Sparks and his first wife, was born ca. 1813 in South Carolina. He was a blacksmith by trade, and he was usually referred to by his middle name, Marion. He was married to Elizabeth Horn, probably in South Carolina; however, no record has been found of that event. She had been born ca. 1811 in North Carolina according to census records, and she may have been a sister of Luranna Horn, the second wife of Zerah Sparks. Apparently, Elizabeth and Marion had a child who grew up as 55.4.1 James Robert Sparks and who was born on May 8, 1832. In all likelihood, Bob (as he was called) was born prior to the marriage of his parents
