Columbus M Sparks (Marion C Sparks in early census) is my Great Grandfather he was born in Alabama in 1859. Unsure what town. Census shows that my Great Great Grandparents are possibly James R and Margaret (Brock) Sparks. I have been told That Francis Marion and Elizabeth (Maiden Name ?) Sparks that died in Marshall Co Alabama are his parents (My Great Great Great Grandparents)I have no proof.Also told that Zerah's Sparks (buried in Red Apple (Boaz), Marshall County, AL in 1867 and his first wife are my Great Great Great Great Grandparents. One person has said that Elizabeth's last name is Horne. I also find Horne being the last name of Zerah's second wife. I hope that I am going down the right family line with my Great Grandfather. Does anybody have proof of this family line?
