Thomas, Thanks for all your information. It sure seems like we are talking about the same Sparks Family. However, I still can't prove this is the Phebe Sparks i am looking for for certain. An elderly cousin of mine remembers of a Sparks Family in the area of madwaska and one of them was George and Aron Sparks but she does not remember much else about them.
In the 1881 Canadian Census, i found the following.
Husband- Nathan Sparks, English, Born in New Brunswick and is a Farmer and Religion is Baptist.
Wife- Mary Jane Sparks
Children Aron Sparks, Emily Sparks, Febie (In Maine Marriage the spelling is Phebe-still could be same person)Sparks, Hanna Sparks and George Sparks. If I could find out the dates of birth and death for Phebe and where she is burried, then I could send perhaps to the state for other informaiton I need.(Phebe & Elisha did live in Woodland, Aroostook County, Maine. I also found them in the 1900 census)
Thanks so much for all your information. It certainely give a lot of leads and things to think about on this line.
I have taken this long to answer your message because there is a lot to digest. If I have any luck on follow up, i certainely will let you know. Thanks again
