I've put together the research that my grandmother and great aunt have passed along to me along with some information I found on the internet that I believe to be correct. I am always looking for any information on the Arkansas Sparkman line and my Blaylock line (no idea where they came from... YET!). My Grandmother tells me that one of our ancestors was a Cherokee princess, but she's not sure who it was. Of course, I've heard that from any number of other people when they are recounting their ancestors and I have a feeling that there were only so many Cherokee princesses to go around, so I am not sure if this is true or wishfull thinking. It's pretty plain that we do have American Indian in our background, but I seriously doubt that it will turn out to be anyone famous or otherwise important.
