Hi, well i made my trip to the Vigo Co library
unfortunately they were doing work on the library
i waited and was able to view census records
however not others as they were busy with people

i plan to make a future trip.

i did find a little bit in census records
and marriages to 1850

in 1870 census Vigo CO Honey Creek Twsp (taken in Jul 1870)
it lists
David Adams age 38 farmer born IND 420 250
Hannah age 29 born IND
Charles W. age 5 IN
Elmira age 3 IN
Nancy age 8 months IN
James Rogers age 21 Farmer

in 1860 Honey Creek Twsp Vigo County it lists
David Adams age 25 IND
Hanah age 18 IND
Mary age 1 IND

(note in 1860 their was also a David living with a Matilda
however he was born in OHIO)

in 1850 Vigo CO Linton Twsp:
Nancy Adams age 42 born KY
Izah age 23 IND
David age 17 IND
Jeremiah age 14 IND
Nancy age 13 IND
Noah E. age 12 IND

(note their was another David in 1850 with a James and
Matilda however he was in 1860 living with mother
so he cant be yours, the one listed above then is probably
yours) (note i could not find a marriage in Vigo Co to
1850 with an Adams marriage to a Nancy) they were possibly
married in another county or in KY)

unfortunately i couldnt find your David in Adams books
however a lot of lines from KY to IND have not been
well researched you may have to get further back to connect.
their is also probably a connection of your Adams family
and the Nelson family as your David in 1860 and 1870
was living close to some Nelsons in Vigo Co)

these were Adams who were in Vigo CO in 1840
dont know if one may be yours
Ammi p.821
J.J. p.789
Noah p.829 (may be your line)
Sally p.821
Wayne p.789
William p.789
Wm. p.789

okay now Sparks family
1850 Vigo Co IN p.276
Preston Sparks age 31 farmer born KY
Rachel Ann age 25 KY
Hannah M. age 8 IN
Mary Ann age 6 IN
Winfield age 2 IN
TF/FF age 2 IN

other Sparks in Vigo Co 1850
Charles B.Sparks age 20 KY
Samuel Sparks age 28 KY
Nimrod C.Sparks age 40 KY
Benjamin Sparks age 20 KY
William Sparks age 30 KY
Benj Sparks age 72 IN? (living with children Joseph age 28
PA, Sarah age 22 KY, and grandaughter Martha age 1 KY)

Elizabeth Sparks age 27 KY (living with McCray family)
Richard Sparks age 70 VA (living with McCray family)

Sparks in 1840 Vigo Co IND
Daniel p.769
Benjamin p.749
Edward p.753
Eph p.745
Ezra p.717
Hiram p.749
NC. p.709
Preston p.749
R. p.749
Richard p.763
Smith p.739
Walter p.769

notes a marriage record in Vigo Co in Feb 13 1840
of Preston Sparks and Rachel Ann McRea

also a marriage of a Phebe Ann Sparks born 1825 KY
in 2-24-1844 Vigo CO to a Charles W. McRea

it is a safe bet your Preston and this Phebe Ann are
has a Phoebe Ann born 1825 daughter of a Richard Sparks
born 1780 VA(prob where you should look your Preston is
probably also a son of this Richard)

well that is what i looked up
i dont know if it helped you any or not

Sincerely Dean I.
