Terry, I think you have some of the facts wrong, or at least they are different from my understanding. My grandmother, Ida Cruse Sparks was named after Ida Bates, her cousin. Granny was 6 when the events occurred, and there was an article in the Shelbyville paper about it around 1960, which I think my aunt still has. I believe Ida's father was TJ Koonce. She is buried beside him in the cemetery. If you are interested in the details of the events, e-mail me. It's kind of a long story. Herb Sparks
