Hi Jeff- I am happy to find your information on the Sales family of Wilkes Co. NC. I am descended from Hiram Sale and did not know his parents or siblings.Hiram Sale, who married Margaret Mitchell July 12, 1823, died in 1868 in St. Francois Co. Missouri while there on a trip.He and Margaret lived in St. Clair Co. MO and had the following children:Hiram W., Mary Jane, Franklin Marcus, Margaret Ann, George, Elizabeth, John, William, Susan, Marion, and "Bub" whose FNU.Margaret Sale died in St. Clair Co. MO 26 Feb. 1881.(Her birth date was 14Aug. 1804)>She is buried at Landaker Cemetery, St. Clair Co. MO.
Mary Jane Salewas born 24 March 1843 at Bluffton, Indiana.She married William Henderson Sparks 15 Nov. 1860.They had 14 children and I can provide individual data for all of them if you want it.Mary Jane died 24 Feb. 1908 in St. Clair Co. MO.
Again I will be happy to share any info I have.It is interesting to me that the Sales, Sparks, Walkers, Reddings, and another family named Denney seem to be intertwined from NC through other states and in MO where I am from.William Henderson Sparks and Mary Jane Sale Sparks daughter Alice married a Walker, although that branch I am not sure came from NC originally.I have traced them back so far only to Ohio, but wonder where they came from before that.
